Australian farmers create human land-fill...

A group of Australian farmers are opening a "feet-first" graveyard as a no-fuss alternative to traditional burials.
The eco-friendly cemetery will bury the deceased vertically to save space and in bio degradable bags in a field to be used later as pasture.
I don't know about you but I think there's something particularly creepy about this idea. Seems too much like a "mass grave". And then, over time, they just kind of forget about you. No thanks.
Bodies will be stored in a morgue in Melbourne and buried in batches of 12 to 15 in three-metre pre-drilled holes.
