I would build a huge memorial the size of Manhattan and place my body in the middle. My casket would be made out of gold, with large pillars five story's tall beaming around it. The pillow upon which I lay may head would be made out of fur from the endangered Amur Leopard.

At the moment, I don't care what happens to my body after I die. I wouldn't mind being sprinkled into a body of water though.
An aeroplane over the sea :p

I would place my body on cryonics to be preserved for as long as possible

My Will will consist of having someone resuscitate the body as soon as cryonics resuscitation technology is up to par

Whoever revives me shall then be given an appropriate sum of Gold

I wouldn't do anything with it. I've told my family that I'd prefer to be cremated though, so I hope that they would do that.

Seriously? I always say freeze me or burn me, but don't put me underground. If cryogenic freezing is a sensible choice by the time I "die," that's definitely the way I want to go, so I can wake up again in the far distant future. If not, just cremate me. I've seen what happens to corpses after they've been buried. There's no way in hell I'm going to be bug food.

I'd personally choose a cremation as I find a grave site a waste of valuable space and I'll end up decomposed anyway. I do, however, plan to leave the choice to my partner or family in case I die before they do. Some people seem to prefer having a grave to go to in order to keep that memory vivid, or for whatever other reason. In that case, I'm dead.. what do I care.

Ashes in the ocean, the Bermuda Triangle to be exact because... why not?

Classic funeral pyre, like my pagan ancestors before me.

As for trying to obtain immortality or preservation... have my reasons against it, least of all being it is not natural, and that no one should have immortality, ever. People that don't want to decay in the end of it all are just arrogant cowards after all. Let nature take it's course as it should. Yeah, really against seeking of immortality and forms of corpse preservation just so someone won't decay.

Launching my corpse into orbit around the earth sounds like a cool idea, so that's what I would do.
