You can't take it with you.

Just think that when you die, there is absolutely nothing of material value that you can take with you. It is something that most of us do not want to think about, but it is true. I would think that having the most experiences that you wanted to have, which you could take into the great beyond would be much more satisfying than collecting the most toys, which you couldn't take with you.

How profound, how long did it take you to dream that rubbish up ??

Wait, who says? What about the Pharoahs? They had their prized possessions AND their still-living servants buried with them! That's the way I'm going, and I'm taking everything with me!

Nobody can say for sure what you get to bring with (except maybe the Ouiji Board and the Magic 8-Ball), so perhaps having a few servants is worth a try - after all, if you don't get your servants buried with you, presumably you won't have them in your next life whether or not you're allowed to have them.

Whaaaaaat! I can't take my toys. Well I'm still glad I collected them and at least I'll be able to leave them to someone special. As an added bonus I also get to to enjoy the experience of collecting them and I'm sure I can take that with me. But where do I take it?
