death, burial, bad parents 

So my housemate was given half of her mother's ashes after her death. A mother she didn't really like and didn't want to deal with. It was a pain in the ass to get it through TSA bringing it from Iowa to California.

Now we're leaving, and she doesn't want to deal with them anymore. But there's not an easy way to figure out where to disperse the ashes. Cue our aviation related solution

We're calling it operation "Drop the Mom." We will fly 5 miles off shore, open the door to the plane, and drop a small biodegradeable urn off the side of the plane. All perfectly legal and in accordance with EPA laws.

We're going to drop to around 500 feet or so to "drop the mom", which means the urn will impact the ocean going about 130 miles an hour.

There is a certain poetry to the fact that my housemate is going to be able to yeet her shitty mother's remains off the side of a plane like a god damn torpedo and hit the water so hard it'll probably explode on contact.

The video for the urn is hilarious when you put it into context with what we're actually going to be doing: youtube.com/watch?v=fGA7FVfR1T

@pandora_parrot I love this plan so much. I also adore the video including a funnel in the instructions, because it just brings up such great questions. “How best do I wash my dead relative off this funnel so I can use it to fill a sugar jar later?”
