Default Funeral Decisions

I was just watching News on Australian TV. I could not believe when they said they were running out of space for funeral spots! The last time I drove across Australia, it was 4500kms give or take and takes 4 days! What are they smoking?
However, they say they will run out of plots by 2051, but won't worry me.
To solve this problem, I think OFWs from Philippines should be sent to act as consultants on how to maximise space in Cemetries in Oz! High rise plots have been in place here for a very long time!
A new industry could well emerge 'Down Under'.
As I say when I drive past a Cemetry with my wife - people are just dying to get in there! She just looks at me and shakes her head.

Plenty of abandoned mine shafts in Coober Pedy Ron, land fill but the freight? Semi trailer will sort that at about 350 bucks each including the coffin, much cheaper without.

Cheers, Steve.
