Well, I wanted to be a pocket watch when I die…

“Harvard discovers three of its library books are bound in human flesh”

Seriously, I wanted to be cremated and the carbon from my ashes made into diamonds to be cut into jewel bearings for a pocket watch.

(“That’s Grandpa Watch.” — “Don’t you mean ‘Grandpa’s watch’?” — “No.”)

However, I wouldn’t mind being a book.

It just has to be a good book.

And the binding materials must be harvested post-mortem.


PS: This is creepy, nonetheless.

UPDATE: One of the three has been disqualified as human flesh. That leaves two to test.
