Personalized computer gravestone for deceased computer lad
In the olden days, the Egyptians used to bury the deceased with all their favourites items and believed that doing so, would allow them to enjoy their belongings in heaven too. Times have changed and now, doing that would mean having the entire graveyard dug out and made a mess of by robbers. So, wise folk come up with alternatives. For instance, the relatives of a young 26-year-old Chinese computer geek who passed away had a gravestone carved in the shape of a computer monitor which depicted his date of birth and death. It also featured a keyboard, a mouse and a camera with Hu Chuang’s photograph. Will this become a trend, I wonder. May Hu’s soul rest in peace.
