>How about a gravestone with "R.I.P." (rest in peace) on it?

Now now--if you have to say what R.I.P. on a gravestone means then it
shouldn't be used on the icon, hmm? ;)

I'd go for a coffin though. Hmm. A coffin. I wonder how one changes icons
in Windows95. That'd be a great replacement for the trash can--oops I mean
recycling bin--in Win95 especially if you believe in reincarnation. <g>

>A skull and crossed bones?


My vote: a teeny tiny viking hall labeled "Valhalla."
