Everybody dies, sooner or later. But dying doesn’t mean you have to stop being a geek.

There are no Photoshopped images here. Every one of these headstones is the real deal. And you’ve got to love the gumption of anyone willing to show off their geeky-ness on something as long-lasting as a grave marker.

It’s not enough that he was a Star Trek fan — he actually shared the exact same name as The Next Generation‘s first officer (yep, even his middle name). But the Enterprise depicted on the grave marker is from the original series. Wonder why they didn’t go with the 1701-D? [Source]

Rocket

Strangely, the man buried here had nothing whatsoever to do with rocket construction or the space program. He just liked the design so much that he picked it for his own headstone. Extra credit: the sculpture has lots of rocket trivia engraved into it. [Source]

Scrabble

I refused to believe that this was real at first. But I found various sources verifying that this is the real deal, and can be found at a cemetery in Portland, Oregon. If you zoom in to the high-res image, you can see that each of the Scrabble spaces and tiles is actually a ceramic tile. [Source]

Star Wars

I totally want a TARDIS headstone on my grave. Okay, so this isn’t technically a “TARDIS headstone,” but come on. It’s impossible to look at it and not think of the Doctor. [Source]
