A 17 sq. mi patch of forest near Waterloo, Ontario is about to be destroyed in order to clean up the plot for the construction of a large graveyard which will be the home of a single coffin. An unprecedented event is the result of a will of recently deceased V.M. Whales, a software engineer and a Docker evangelist from a nearby town.

Whales' will demands a personal graveyard with complete infrastructure, a chapel and a crew of full-time workers. The municipality is happy to comply since the will comes with a guaranteed source of financing, which Mr Whales had accumulated over the years of developing and supporting difficult-to-maintain software projects.
