In what appears to be a presumptuous gesture if not an eccentric one, actor Nicolas Cage has already picked out a burial site for himself. Located in the St. Louis Cemetery No.1, Cage has purchased a rather dramatic white pyramid that will serve as a tombstone after his death. The pyramid grave stands 9-feet (2.74 meters) tall and displays the Latin maxim 'Omnia Ab Uno', meaning 'Everything from one'. As much as Nicolas Cage feels at peace about choosing his resting place, the locals of the city do not seem to mirror his feelings, seeing as that the pyramid occupies quite a lot of place in the already cramped cemetery.
