The 10 most bizarre ways of giving "the last goodbye&qu
Arch West, maker of Doritos, died at the age of 97 years and during his burial, his loved ones scattered on the coffin corn appetizer that made him famous. But it is the only case curious given the 'last goodbye' in a manner so bizarre.
There are 10 other bizarre ways of giving "the last goodbye."
1. The designer of the Pringles potato chip tube, Frederic Baur, was also buried with his invention. He requested that his remains were deposited in a cylindrical container. To honor his request, his sons bought a tube, original flavor, the way to the funeral.
2. Malcolm McLaren, former agent of the British rock group Sex Pistols, called for "a minute of noise" rather than a minute of silence during his extravagant funeral. His coffin, decorated with a graffiti slogan in saying "too fast to live, too young to die", was taken by four black horses. A vintage bus from which sounded the version of the song "My Way" by the Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious, was following behind.
3. The remains of Gene Roddenbery were launched into space in 1997 as a tribute to the creator of Star Trek that made famous the phrase "to go boldly where no man has gone before." The remains were sent into space Gene along with those of LSD guru Timothy Leary and 22 other space enthusiasts. His remains traveled around the planet until 2002, when he re-entered Earth's atmosphere.
4. Hunter S. Thompson, propelling the United States of journalism known as "gonzo" subgenre of trade that is called away from objective journalism, he asked that his remains be shot by a fee paid by his friend Johnny Depp. His ashes were fired from a tower 45 meters tall, atop which was a red fist with two thumbs, the symbol of his journalism.
5. The rap artist Tupac Shakur never hid his affinity for marijuana. After his death, his group asked to pay tribute in the best way they knew. In a video released earlier this year, members of Outlawz Young said Shakur's remains mixed with marijuana and smoked. His family said afterward that doing so would have been difficult because the remains were well kept.
6. Considered one of the parents of planetary science, Eugene Shoemaker was one of three people who discovered the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9. It is also the only person to have been buried on the moon. Some of Shoemaker's remains were transported to the satellite on a mission to scout in 1999 in a polycarbonate capsule, inside a sealed aluminum heat.
7. Frank Sinatra had a traditional Catholic funeral, but there was also a touch of originality. In his coffin was brought a bottle of whiskey, a Zippo lighter and 10 cents for use, they say, if you need to make an emergency call. On his tombstone would read "the best is yet to come."
8. The geologist Brian Tandy's ashes were turned into synthetic diamonds. His wife canary yellow diamond embedded in a ring and ordered two more for their daughters. LifeGem, the company that manufactures, says he has done for a client using a hair of Michael Jackson.
9. The actress Liz Taylor was known for her passion for jewelry, weddings and impeccable style. He arrived fashionably late to her funeral because she stipulated that she wanted the job started 15 minutes later than the agreed time.
10. Sandra West, a member of the Beverly Hills socialite and widow of an oil businessman, asked to be buried in a lace nightgown, sitting in the front seat of his blue Ferrari. The handwritten request was a source of legal battle: his brother, who risked losing U.S. $ 190,000 of your estate if you do not meet this requirement, tried to cancel this request. Two months later, the judge ordered that the funeral will take place as West had requested. So she was dressed in a nightgown and placed in the car, which was then buried in a grave dug in the cemetery of San Antonio, USA.
