Ermmm.  matumbo sounds painful.  And of course, there's the stigma of being violated.

I'll pick the guillotine when y'all decide it's time for me to go.

I'm told it painless...





I'm a thorough documenter.  Your request has been duly noted ...

Explain why this matters.
First you explain why it matters that a convicted murderer be executed in a totally pain free manner?

There are no first hand accounts from people who have been guillotined... Or hung so that their necks were broken either... Smiley

I didn't say it does. I asked you. I don't have an opinion on this. I dare not, because whichever side I pick, you'll just use ridicule to refute it.

So instead of stating my opinion, I'm not going to form one until I have yours. Then I will simply form that opinion.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

No one has ever complained, though.

People tend to pick whatever death they think is the most painless, but I don't see much of a point to it. Pain is only there to tell you not to die. If you're going to die anyway, why avoid pain?

I've thought about it a lot, decided to go this X-Mas, and my primary concern is not leaving a corpse.

If you can't figure out my opinion from what I've written in this thread, you're hopelessly stupid.

I prefer hanging because it's cheap and effective, but kind hearted "progressives" don't like it,  so they forced states to go to gas, which was also too barbaric, and then to lethal injection, which is now apparently painful for some people. Oh well...

Yeah,

"oh well . . . the important thing is that the government never be constrained from killing civilians, no matter how painfully they do it.

I've figured out that you'll state a strong opinion with confidence, but no reasoning, then wait for me to change my opinion so you can ridicule me. And you'll never say right out that murderers should be killed painfully; you'll just wait for me to say it so you can ridicule.

So I want the reasoning. Why does it matter that a murderer didn't afford his victim the same rights he wants? Lay it out for me. If you present clear reasons, I won't hesitate to agree with you.

I'm not in favor of executing murderers unless it is certain that they are murderers... But in those cases, I favor hanging.

BTW, not all murderers are civilians.
