Funeral

 Maybe i am not wired correctly......well i have an inkling .......it may be ....being a Glaswegian does not help ......but to me funerals are so stupid .....i get the queen loved the queen .....and all i knew was the  queen ....but the pomp and  circumstance to see a person dead in a box .......almost a million people  lining up to see death ....to me i cannot wrap my mind around the whole death thing.....its cultural........and years or brainwashing about death ........incidentally a million people lining up for hours and hours .....where are they gonna  shit or pee .......i mean a million people  even if they needed shitters .....there would not be enough .......the logistics of  this are  massive ......same with the million man march  ...where  did the all shit and piss ......a handful of porta potties ain't going to cut the  fromage .........


However.....people just love death,,,,,, or watching death,,,,,,,,,, or love fucking misery......or something living is better .......... to me there is nothing better than watching a hot chick...... in a summer dress walking by me  .......smelling of  daisies....... or something girlie  .....you know living .......because.......... it would look shitty on a dead chick .......that's my theory about death !.....nothing good  comes from death at all......... misery .....crying .....etc........ etc ........and of course .......there is that obligation .....of ........   you have to attend the funeral    .........or you are the  bad guy .........


I never got to both my parents funerals .....and the reason is because........first of all....... when my father died ........i was illegal in US....and could not leave ........a decision that   tore me to shreds....... for years .....and a price i paid to come here ...... i am sure there are many people  who got  caught in  the web .....yet illegals get in here  ........ free  .....pisses me off .....however.........also i missed my mothers funeral....... as  i had already been    to see her in hospital ......and spent time with her ......and 2 weeks later  .....i never had the finances to go back again .......it takes money to go back and forth to uk .........but  no one  understand  that  when it comes  to death ...... family don't care ...... or understand your predicament ........this is why i  have no love for families ........ and if they can find a scapegoat....... they will ......i was the scape goat .....i left and went away........never cared etc..... etc .......maybe because i lived my life outside a fucking shithole place in Scotland .......but that's another day ....or rant about families ...(i will get to that subject )........


however death will always amaze the masses i really don't get it .....the way death is  such a fascination ....to the masses ......


Well ..........all i know none of us are getting out of here alive !!!!!!!




Queen Elizabeth to be buried in decades-old coffin lined with lead that takes 8 people to carry

As many people in the United Kingdom and around the world mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II, British officials and the country’s royal family are preparing for a host of memorials, including the queen's funeral next week.

Like so many proceedings associated with the royal family, the coffin itself carries a specific history with it: It was made decades ago with a liner of lead that makes it especially heavy.

The coffin is being flown to London on Tuesday, and it will be moved from Buckingham Palace on Wednesday to the Houses of Parliament to lie in state.

But who makes a coffin for a queen? And how is a coffin for a queen made?

Royal family: Princess Anne was by the queen's side 'the last 24 hours' of her 'dearest Mother’s life'

Queen Elizabeth II: Prince Harry gives touching tribute to his 'Granny' and her 'infectious smile'

Pallbearers carry the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II, draped in the Royal Standard of Scotland, into St Giles' Cathedral, in Edinburgh, on September 12, 2022, for a service of Thanksgiving for her life.

Coffin was made decades ago: 'Not something you can just make in a day'

The oak coffin was made more than 30 years ago, funeral directors confirmed to USA TODAY. Leverton & Sons, which has served as funeral directors to the royal household said it inherited the coffin made for the queen by another firm, Kenyons.

Andrew Leverton, a funeral director at Leverton & Sons, previously told British outlet the Times "It is made from English oak, which is very difficult to get hold of.”

“Oak coffins are now made from American oak. I don’t think we could use English oak for a coffin now. It would be too expensive,” he told the outlet.

The coffin is also lined with lead, Leverton & Sons said. The lead lining makes the coffin so heavy that eight military bearers will carry it on the day of the queen's funeral.

“It is not something you can just make in a day,” Leverton said, noting that the coffin is also built for historic royal objects to be placed on it.

Leverton & Sons declined to comment further to USA TODAY.
