Urban Kvetch: Lifegem

From the creepily named “living memorial” industry, a Lifegem is a diamond created from the carbon ashes of your cremated loved one, available in assorted colors. I can hear it already—women crowing from Scarsdale to Boca: “Can’t we do something about those pesky burial laws? Dig up grandma, kill your uncle; there’s a tennis bracelet waiting to happen!” And for the ecologically inspired, try Eternal Reefs, which creates cremation-concrete mixtures in which a marine habitat can evolve. My family is already planning to become the Great Barrier of the Bronx.
