MSNBC reports that people are asking to be buried with their cell phones, Blackberries and Gameboys:
"'It seems that everyone under 40 who dies takes their cell phone with them,' says Noelle Potvin, family service counselor for Hollywood Forever, a funeral home and cemetery in Hollywood, Calif. 'It’s a trend with BlackBerrys, too. We even had one guy who was buried with his Game Boy.' Anecdotal evidence suggests being buried with a favorite tech device is on the upswing. The Future Laboratory, a London-based think tank, commented on the behavior, noting it in places like the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa."
“Leopards break into the temple and drink the sacrificial chalices dry; this occurs repeatedly, again and again; finally it can be reckoned upon beforehand and becomes part of the ceremony.”
