I want to be buried, good old viking burial, not the out to sea stuff, but when you get buried with everything you own including you wife horse and pets and stuff, so first i'd get a wife, then a horse and a new pet, then i can die in peice.

It's a scary thought - although if you're getting embalmed before you're getting buried then that stuff will kill you off anyway. If you're going to wake up, you'll wake up on the embalming slab too. Not all graves have six foot of earth thrown on top either - most graves i have seen are tomb type graves where you could pop the lid of the coffin and then have a bit of space between the coffin and the roof of the tomb - which is made up of stone flags. Chances are if you're fit enough to get out of your coffin, you're fit enough to bust out of the tomb. You could always bet buried with a mobile phone if you were really worried - just make sure the phones not on T-Mobile, or you'll be wasting your time!
Don't believe it's true.
