What should we do with Escobar's hippos?

Interestingly, the hippos are developing into a new species. The Colombian hippos sexually mature faster than African hippos. So much more food in Colombia.

Buried the cat's urn today. If we move house that'll be the time to scatter the ashes.

Also recited the Egyptian prayer for cats.

Bast, Sekhmet, we give you back your child.
Noble, regal, honorable cat.
Watch over him, and guide him on his way
to the spirit world.
May he be blessed in your names,
and hunt ever after beside you.

weird, why would a scientist indulge in spiritual ritual? a prayer? LOL.

your cat is dead and the earth is a cold meaningless place.

Because you called stuff like religion, philosophy, etc. a waste of time in the other thread.

Sorry about your cat though (again). Also consider appealing to other cat gods like Li Shou, Ai Apaec, Ovinnik in a followup stanza.

Those are false gods. Bast is the eternal one.

Which Bast though? OG or modern corner store curio? #americangods

Your blasphemy has condemned you to be reincarnated as a mouse and smacked around and tossed in the air for all eternity.

Untrue. I have been accepted by the great cat spirit as a balanced cat person who doesn't act all creepy about it.

i just don't understand why a man of science would go through a burial/cremation ceremony and keep his pet in an urn? and bury it? that thing is just dead and inert matter now. you should have spread it on the vegetable patch for compost.

don't you think you're being a little bit irrational? mad perhaps? a fool?

real intelligent modern humans should do away with ritualistic burial practices and all that gibberish. it's a hangover of religion. supernatural thinking. imagine thinking a clump of dead matter should benefit from an urn! or imagine being so befuddled and confused in your own thinking that it should comfort your own emotions! a clear-sighted rationalist would see that the urn and burial business makes no difference whatsoever. confront the meaningless of life, and death, and the universe!

hypocrite.

yes, we know, people have been taking drugs as part of ritual experience for thousands of years.

it's almost like ... the spiritual life ... has always been a rich and living dimension of human experience!

I have a compost bin. Can you compost pet ashes?

Probably but cremation itself does emit lots of CO2.

On that, I guess there's services that offer composting. Maybe a more green burial: https://theconversation.com/ashes-to-as … eks-127794

Personally, I think it would be cool to be frozen out in space and then revived a thousand years later, in the manner of 3001.
