Dead bodies can soon be liquified under new California law

Californians nearing the end or getting an early start choosing how they want to decay can now consider liquid cremation due to a new state law allowing the procedure by 2020. California will be the 15th state to allow the controversial option, according to SFGate.

The procedure decomposes a corpse's flesh with an alkaline solution, leaving only the bones behind to be crushed into ashes.

The next generation of soulless air breathers can thank those who choose the liquidy way out for lowering the carbon footprint, as traditional burials tend to be more harmful to the environment.
