    You are being given the death penalty and you have a choice of how to die:

    1) Electric Chair
    2) Hanging
    3) Guillotine
    4) Burnt at the stake
    5) Dropped in a tub of acid
    6) Firing squad
    7) Drowning

    Firing squad seems like the quickest and most fool-proof way to go.

    Of the choices you presented, I'd take the guillotine. Allowed to choose my own method, I'd select death by combat - fighting an series of increasingly larger and fiercer animals until I lost.

    I voted guillotine. I think it would be the quickest and the one least likely to go wrong.

    Firing squad. Seems like it'd be pretty kickass.

    Guillotine. It's the option that's quickest, least painful, and most likely to work flawlessly.

    Plus, I could make a weird face and horrify some spectators before I lost consciousness.

    Firing squad.


    There's always a chance they'll miss. :p

    Yep - also has a nice horror factor. If I'm going down, I want it to have an effect on people.

    Leaping off a building with razor wire tied around my neck to that it severs my head as it snaps taught, leaving my head and decapitated body to plummet down into the crowd below would also be sufficiently awesome.

    You go on living for awhile after being shot in the chest, too.

    I've always known I'll die alone.



    The how doesn't concern me.

    Firing squad also.

    But if I was to do the tub of acid and somehow survived, would I get a lifetime supply of white makeup and red lipstick?

    As the condemned, I'm entitled to a last request, so I'd skip your list and pick conjgial visit.

    So not by falling off the side of El Capitan, then?

    If it's done properly, hanging severs the spinal cord and is instant death. Also, my body could be hung out for months as a warning to not be as awesome as me.

    Did anyone hear about the inmate who was deemed too overweight to hang, because his weight would cause his body to rip from his head? I don't know what the resolution was, but he obviously had no incentive to diet.

    Seriously. Fuck that shit. Of all the choices, a firing squad seems the least horrific. :scream:

    Nah, by that time I'll probably have a friend with rocket boots to save the day.
