I'd rather be eated by birds than maggots, or burned.

i hear they reserve it for criminals as a way to purify the tainted soul.. and i thought they were on the big rock cause they smash the bones too.

wow, from the subject "sky burial" I thought I was going to see some frozen rock climbers. This is way different... from the discussions it sounds like this is some religious tradition, feeding him to the birds, etc? What religion is that?? The 'embalmer' doesn't look particularly mean so maybe it is legit after all. Still though, seems kind of barbaric.
