A company in Chicago can turn cremated remains into a diamond. Would you like to become a diamond eventually?
Asked at the Lawrence Public Library on August 27, 2002
“No, not really. I think that life goes in a circle. If you become a diamond forever, you are taken away from that circle of life.”
“I think it is one of the most absurd things I’ve ever heard. The money could be better used. It seems like a vain thing to do.”
“Why not? Sure. It would be interesting to be turned into a diamond, although I don’t know who would want it. It’s interesting that they are able to do that.”
“No, that wouldn’t interest me.”
