Everyone wants to be a tree when they grow up and die ... which is actually a really nice thought.

Making the very astute point that cemetaries are creepy and sad, a team an Italian design team created these burial pods, which use the remains of grandpa fertilize the growth of a beautiful tree. Get enough of them together, and you have a "memory forest," which is a hell of a lot more beautiful than a graveyard. Just something to look forward to ...

They even offer more than 20 trees for the person to choose before he or she dies.

The only problem is this type of burial is currently illegal in Italy, where the pods are being made, as well as in most states in the U.S. But, we have a feeling people will start to come around to them once they realize that they can create entire forests out of the dead ... forests that are not only easy on the eyes, but can also be used for recreation, conservation, and even procreation if you're kinky and lost in the woods.

Just something to look forward to ...
