What Happens if You Pass Away in Taiwan?

Moderator: Tempo Gain

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

I'm more worried about my Estate. I wouldn't want arbitrary vultures swooping down upon my millions in my absentia. This is the main reason why I rage, rage against the dying of the light.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I think it gets a bit smelly, then a bit slimmer over time.

Don't forget to have a nice haircut and clip your finger/toenails. That shit will haunt you later.


Very important since those keep growing.

You're at the cutting-edge of irony. You aren't Taiwanese, perchance?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. One hopes hualienmonk is OK.

Is there anything you'd like to talk about, hualienmonk?

I have a question though, is Viking burial an option here? that would solve the problem of having to ship the body back home...
Cat-gut strings are made from kitten guts, stretched out to near breaking point and then hardened with grue saliva. As a result these give a feeling of Pain and anguish whenever played, and often end up playing themselves backwards as part of satanic rituals.

No they don't. The skin dries and retracts. It only seems like they have grown, but they don't. How could they? Come on people. Think.

Odd that for so many atheists and agnostics on this board, it seems we have an inordinate amount of worry about their mortal remains. Who gives a f*ck, right? You ain't goin' nowhere, right?

Although, I expect the "I-Hate-God" crowd will now tell me about how it will comfort the believers in their families. :roll: Die as you lived, I say!!

I have no idea where I'm going. That's why it's called The Next Big Adventure :discodance:

I will leave rules for my funeral, however they're going to do it. There has to be a group of kids singing some stupid happy song about how wonderful life and the world is. And no BLACK and no WHITE - bright colours only. And no crying.

All the funerals that I remember growing up were quite serious Catholic Affairs, but as soon as the funeral ended the whole family went off to a pub (rented out for the occasion) and got rip roaring drunk all night. Well, i didn't, because I was too young so I was dumped in the beer garden with all the other kids @.@; I like the afterparty idea. Last gift to the people you loved - a good party.

But who's going to take care of the porn on my hard drive and make sure it doesn't come out in the funeral speech?

I come to bury Caesar, not to out him as a right fucking pervert.
The porn one downloads often lives after them.
The good is oft interred with their bones.
OK, it's not a magazine. It's just shit that happens: here. http://news.thewildeast.net
