As regular readers will know, the Sceptic Tank is nothing if not public-spirited. We will continue to do our bit for the environment until our dying breath, and now, thanks to the good folks at Redditch council, we will continue to help the cause for several hours after we have left this mortal coil.
The Sceptic Tank has already booked its spot at Redditch crematorium after it emerged that the energy generated by our ceremonial incineration could be captured and used to heat the swimming pool at the neighbouring leisure centre.
Others are not so keen. "I'm not comfortable with it at all, and I think trying to save money due to the death of someone's family member or friend is a bit sick," grumbled Simon Thomas, of Thomas Brothers Funeral Directors, to the Redditch & Alcester Standard.
But the Sceptic Tank couldn't think of a nicer way to go and when the day comes will happily do their bit to ensure the shallow end does not end up too nippy.
