    Death Penalty

    Well, now that I have your attention I just wanted to present you with a question. Lets say you brutally murdered someone in cold blood and your going to get the Death Penalty. Which method would you choose? I had this discussion with a few friends the other day and I think there were 2 lethal injections and 2 firing squads.

    I would choose firing squad because its so badass. Also what would your last meal be?

    Firing squad and Spaghetti Fireball... and maybe some Space-Cookies.

    I'll add another option since I don't think death penalty will get back in my country during my lifetime.
    No death penalty, just the 'process' people are put through when committing thoughtcrime as described in '1984'. I'm not sure which is more civilized though, this 'process' or death penalty.

    Anyway, I'd rather not choose and if I do commit a crime that is punished by death I'd rather have my judge and jury decide on that.

    Fair enough, but in a lot of places they do give you an option about how you would go.

    If I had done something that had really earned the death penalty, I'd let the victim's family decide. I'd deserve what I got.

    I'll have the "beheading with an axe" please.

    Can I also have a salad-bowl of sauteed magic mushrooms, lightly salted, with non-stop refills of shroom-tea.

    Everyone who votes for beheading because they think that it's the quick, painless option should probably read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillotine#Living_heads

    I was afraid this would be a discussion about whether or not the death penalty was moral and I was all prepared for lots of arguing posts, but then I read it and saw it was even more dumb....

    I'd take the firing squad, because you get a free cigarette. My last meal would be pot brownies.

    I hypothetically choose to not be a cold-blooded murderer, thank you.

    Lethal injection or hanging. I'll probably end up with hanging because I don't have access to lethal injections. I'm kidding... or am I?

    I think the best death I could ever imagine, execution or otherwise, would be to jump/get thrown out of a plane.
    If I ever get a terminal disease, that's how I'm gonna go...probably the closest you could ever come to flying, with no safety net. And once you hit, that's it.

    If I ever murdered somebody in cold blood, it would be someone evil, like HITLER*, and people would help me escape and write songs about me.
