Re: Cremation Integration

I have no wish to be resurrected; preferably reincarnated as someone tall, blonde, handsome and smart to someplace other than a dying planet!
Hey, that description could be either Boris or Donald! (preferable to being a mere pleb though, eh! )

Stanley's "Resurrection" to me looks more like a crypt full of embalmed corpses, hideous in depiction. Very well done nonetheless.

IIRC Stanley Spencer's painting is in the Sandham Memorial Chapel near Newbury. I went some years ago.

Correction: The painting show is at Cookham, but there is a Resurrection of the Soldiers at Sandham.

Re: Cremation Integration

Jim, please note: Blonde is the male form of the female Blond, right? No way am I reincarnating into a female to become a mere object of male sexual fantasies, harrassment and gender discrimination!

But who’s to blame for that? Surely best to come back as a hot blond(e) woman and try to fight it from the inside?

Re: Cremation Integration

Best leave that to the Me Too ladies and when they've won, I'll come back and enjoy the benefits - golf with the girls twice a week, cheat on the hubby, spend all his money while he keeps house, cooks meals and looks after the kids!

I don't know how true it is, but I understand that orthodox Jews wake up in the morning and thank God that they weren't born a woman!

Q: How many Australians does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None - she can cook in the dark!

(Told to me by an Australian)

I’d think not being a woman is the least of their problems.
