Entity Concrete box? Like a tomb? a455olds Not really. In the cemeteries around here they mandate that you have what they call a vault. It is actually a concrete box that is put in the ground that is just big enough to fit the casket in. They are supposed to prevent the ground from settling and leaving a depression where you are buried https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c063102025253f2bcacb2260aac56ef92cb7fbc3ef7cdabd7159c3694f0545d9.jpg Entity Learn something new every day. Al Do “Protect casket investment”? are you gonna dig it up in 10 years and sell it on at a profit? What’s the market like for 2nd hand coffins? a455olds “Sorry Grandma, rent is due. We got you this nice cardboard box it’ll be just as good.” FFrost The 5th benefit they avoid saying is, “prevents zombie apocalypse.” Johnny Alpha All my ‘pets’ have been buried with a fruit tree on top, the humans get burned (incinerated?) and scattered on the wind Fokke And Ender Wiggins will be saying eulogies. perthaussieguy I feel a strange woody coming on ……. BearnieZardoz Maybe the pod is new, but the idea to bury people below a tree isn’t really new. These things happen. Over here at least with the one condition that it’s an urn that gets buried, not a pod with a body in it.

Ryjaxius Do you want ents? Because this is how you get ents. Andre Poreskin I’d like to have some Ents… Patchy Inappropriate use of the semicolon. a455olds I have never gotten a handle on when to use a semicolon vs a colon. Grammar has never been my strong suit. In this case I would have would have used a comma instead of the semicolon and eliminated the comma after pods. Feel free to correct me if i’m wrong. The man that did that thing And when the zombies start rising from their graves, they’ll have a hell of a time getting free of the roots. It’s win-win.
