    well, "cremate" does imply "burning"...

    ...but among your choices, "feed to vultures" wins by a landslide. A vulture's digestive system does wonders to carcasses; easily the work of thousands of insects (assumedly, they don't have to chew through a coffin for 5 years to get to the corpse either), in a fraction of the time. Mere hours later, Grandpa Joe has gone from grade F loudmouth vietnam vet to grade A organic fertilizer!
