Tibetan Sky Funeral

Tibetan Sky Funeral, a Reverse Thanksgiving, in some ways. I was not aware of such a practice existing. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. A low carbon foot print, and extremely efficient. Very patient vultures.

If I was not donating my body to scientific research when I die, or if I lived near many ethnic Tibetans, this would be an interesting way to return my final remains back to the dust it came from. All that vulture poop and feathers though.. not to mention the last minute of the video's ritual... it's gotta be kinda messy.
