comp case

True geeks can never do anything in a normal manner.  We have to have geeky coffee cups and geek themed cuff links, so why would our deaths be any different?  I have heard of a couple slightly geeky ways to leave this world, but this one tops them all.  Alan decided that he wanted to be buried in a SPARCstation CPU case.  He’s of course cremated, they didn’t just strategically fold him up in order to fit him inside.  Being buried in a computer case is probably one of the most original and nerdy things to do.

Of course according to the family, it seemed to fit his life after he spent years in a cubicle.  The family have had the case engraved with his name and the years of his life.  Which oddly they blurred out the year he was born.  To make it an even more complete funeral, the family has left little notes on Post-It notes for their deceased loved one.  If they didn’t want the note shared with anyone, they just had to fold it up and drop it in the floppy slot.  The Post-It notes on the outside will be sealed and protected with some plastic.  The daughters of the deceased like the case and all the notes so much now that they don’t really want to bury it.  This is an odd way to go, but you might as well do it your way.
