treehugger has images from a recent patent obtained by inventor Donald Scruggs. His idea? Since burying people horizontally is an extravagant use of real estate, and digging those holes is a lot of work, he came up with a cork-screw burial container that places our loved ones vertically in the ground. Picture a six-foot tall screw that twists into the ground. His contraption comes complete with hermetic sealing, security locking, plaque and memorial markers and built-in flower and flag receptacles.
