Disposing of the Body

According to TYWKIWDBI if you go outside the 3 mile limit it's OK to dump a body or parts thereof.
I'll bet if the Coast Guard happens along they would frown on cement booties though.

Both Dad and his brother served in the Royal Navy during and after the last Anglo-German disagreement.
Uncle was on board when a burial at sea had to be carried out.
Unfortunately the deceased stubbornly refused to sink.

What do you do under the circumstances? Issue a notice to mariners about a hazard to navigation?

I remember the first time I found my buddy passed out in my car. He would pass out in my car cuz he knew he would wake up at home.

The first time I had to carry his unconscious ass into his house, alone, I thought on the way back out to my car that getting rid of a dead body wouldn't be nearly as hard as I thought it might have been. He wasn't but about 180 lbs.

He was limp as a dishrag. No help at all.

I was going to make a questionable rigor mortis joke, and was looking up the timelines on Wikepedia and accidentally learned something.

Quote:
Rigor mortis is very important in meat technology. The onset of rigor mortis and its resolution partially determine the tenderness of meat. If the post-slaughter meat is immediately chilled to 15 C (59 F), a phenomenon known as cold shortening occurs, whereby the muscle sarcomeres shrink to a third of their original length.

Cold shortening is caused by the release of stored calcium ions from the sarcoplasmic reticulum of muscle fibers, in response to the cold stimulus. The calcium ions trigger powerful muscle contraction aided by ATP molecules. To prevent cold shortening, a process known as electrical stimulation is carried out, especially in beef carcasses, immediately after slaughter and skinning. In this process, the carcass is stimulated with alternating current, causing it to contract and relax, which depletes the ATP reserve from the carcass and prevents cold shortening.[7]

When Roy Rogers' horse died, Trigger Mortis set in.

Indisputable fact.

I read that exact same article back when I found that dead turkey.

We call that a Stand In The Corner Joke.

I think cold shortening and electrical stimulation to avoid it are techniques used by wham-bam factory processors.
I have never come across the problem in 45 years of ranch killing my own beef.
Calmness (lack of stress) and slow chilling are just two the great advantages of doing it at home and getting superior meat.
