    Cremation, then burial. I think it combines the best of both worlds. I don't have to rot away, but there is still a place for mourners to visit.

    Would like to have been "hauglagt", but that is not a option here in Norway.
    You have to be buried in "sacred" ground provided by the church... So most likely I will be cremated and my ashes poured out on one of the mountains where my mother is from.

    Hmm, could you tell us more about this "hauglagt"?

    I don't care. I don't believe in life after death, so it's all equal to me what happens after I die.
