    I'd like to keep it simple, but just a little worrying for anyone who happens to spot it.

    Kilus travelled back in time and stopped the Nazis from winning WW2. If it wasn't for him you'd be speaking German now.

    "Buy a good shotgun. Life is too short to spend hunting with a bad shotgun"
    Or somethings along those lines. It makes better sense in norwegian.
    Thought of it the other day after having tried my dads shotgun after having shot with mine.

    Nothing beats Spike Milligan's "I told you I was ill".

    Mayhaps one should choose a puzzling message à la "Meet me here on April 4th, 2048 at noon. Bring the box."

    Nice ones:

    "Here lies the body of Emily White,
    She signalled left, and then turned right."

    "Here lies Dr Keene, the good Bishop of Chester,
    Who eat up a fat goose, but could not digest her."

    "Here lies the corpse of Doctor Chard,
    Who fill'd half of this churchyard."

    "Here Lies Johnny Yeast.
    Pardon me for not rising."

    If i were to have a tombstone I would use the one from black adder: "Here lies Edmund Blackadder, and he's bloody annoyed".

    When my buddy passed away a couple years ago he had the unfortuneate nick name "Flames" and it's permanently engraved on his tombstone. I will refrain from having a stupid nick name for fear of being remembered for something. His perma-fried friend's had a little too much to do with his death for my comfort anyways so I do not know how they had that kind of influence about his after life.

    Mine will simply say "Buried ass up, so the world can kiss my ass"

    Probably something cheerfull like:

    "Mouthwash?!? - We don't need no stinking mouthwash!"

    Or maybe something depressing like:

    "And all that I can say, is, that it gets darker with the day"

    graveyards are waste of space.
    Also nothing is more pointless than getting something special a tombstone. Why make people waste money or waste yours ?
    Just take the cheapest route.

    Yeah, I kind of want to do cremation or the "organic option" which is basically a hole in the ground, no fluids, no box. It is legal but there are some standards you need to follow. Not that I'm obsessed with death or anything but I watched 6 feet under a whole lot.
