Based on this answer I wonder - can I kill .... a rat, put all my things inside of him and just push him to nearest city (without slowing down) then extract my stuff and sell them?

one of of "pushing" would be to throw fireballs at the rat (it would also make mastering of destruction easier) – IAdapter Dec 14 '11 at 19:49
You can only gain skill points for something that can take damage. So a dead rat does not count. – TylerShads Dec 14 '11 at 19:52
There's a way to grab stuff: Holding E on PC. I'm not sure what button it is for the consoles. – Arkive Dec 14 '11 at 19:58
Consoles it is your action button, but believe me when I say it is VASTLY inferior to the way it works in PC. – TylerShads Dec 14 '11 at 19:59
I'd be worried that as a non-safe/owned container, the contents may reset without your knowledge. – agent86 Dec 14 '11 at 21:20

Yes it's possible. Rather than trying to use the physics object grab or spamming Fus Ro Dah however, a better choice is to use one of the 'raise dead' spells from the Conjuration school. This will allow your Skeever Suitcase (or Bandit Backpack, Draugr Drawer, Vampire Valise, Necromancer Knapsack, Stormcloak Satchel, or even Legionairre Luggage - whatever is handy really) to follow you through cave, town, building, and zone entrances, offering much more versatility.

+1 for the new line of fashionable baggage. – chandsie Dec 15 '11 at 1:25
"Draugr Drawer" is disgusting and doesn't mean what you think it means – user9983 Dec 19 '11 at 0:51
@OrigamiRobot It means exactly what I think it means. You, on the other hand, seem to have an underwear fixation. – LessPop_MoreFizz Dec 19 '11 at 0:54
@LessPop_MoreFizz - Well I DO wear them daily so you may be onto something. – user9983 Dec 19 '11 at 1:01
+1 What a tongue-in-cheek phrasing. This did not get an accept. – ヴァイシャリ Dec 19 '11 at 3:42

Theoretically, yes it is possible. How you do this varies from fireballs to FUS'RO'DAHing him all the way home.

Only way I see this not working is if it is inside a dungeon (read: an area that requires a loading screen to get in/out of) the body would probably be permanently stuck inside the area.

Since most cities are behind a loading screen, that's a pretty big limitation. – bwarner Dec 14 '11 at 20:55
Aye, he asked for a way to get back to town, so fast travel to just outside (say a stable) is still viable. – TylerShads Dec 14 '11 at 22:53
