When I go, I don't want anything fancy. Just taxidermy me kickboxing a ferocious bear and leave me in my family's living room. That's how I want to be remembered.

Donald Scruggs has another idea: the screw-in coffin. It saves space and you can bury it yourself. It's not just practical, says Scruggs, it's fun!

You could have one made out of clear resin, with you in the middle of it, and you could practically wave goodbye to everyone as you're being screwed into the ground. But that's probably an option for rock stars.
