i'd die as a random victim in an epic battle between godzilla and gamora
No way: http://www.straightdope.com/columns...d-remain-briefly-conscious-after-decapitation
I'd still take firing squad, though.
Since the only reason I'd possibly be given the Death Penalty would be if an oppressive faction took over the United States and wanted me out of the way for advocating Freedom and Human Rights, I'd take the firing squad without a blindfold so I could die staring the enemy in the eye, defiant to the last.
Option 1, though none of us can discount getting shanked in our sleep.
I can't believe i'm the only one that chose drowning. I mean come on, you don't even suffer until your lungs run out of Oxygen and then it's only mere seconds of being unable to breath that you pass out from lack of Oxygen thus you will die whilst unconscious.
You suffer for mere seconds and it's technically not even pain, you're just unable to breath.
Have you ever been underwater nearly too long? Your lungs burn for air, its verypainful. And you don't die solely from being unable to breath, you drown because you breathe water into your lungs when the reflex to inhale overcomes your concious control. It's a pretty horrid and fairly slow way to die really.
Chop off my head definitely. Even if your head lives as the stories say, the instant massive drop in blood pressure would hardly make you particularly coherent for your 3 or 4 seconds of life.
Firing squad. Not the quickest probably, or the least painful, but surely the most dignified.
But the stake would be much more in character for me, along the lines of Giordano Bruno.
Three women are about to be executed. One's a brunette, one's a redhead, and one's a blonde.
The guard brings the brunette forward and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She says no, and the executioner shouts, "Ready! Aim!" Suddenly the brunette yells, "EARTHQUAKE!!!"
Everyone is startled and throws themselves on the ground while she escapes.
The guard brings the redhead forward and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She say no, and the executioner shouts, "Ready! Aim!"
Suddenly the redhead yells, "TORNADO!!!"
Everyone is startled and looks around for cover while she escapes.
By now the blonde has it all figured out. The guard brings her forward and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She says no, and the executioner shouts, "Ready! Aim!"
And the blonde yells, "FIRE!!!"
hmm tricky but i think i'd choose hanging in an electric chair as it's burning and i'm high on acid (like to keep my options open)
None of them are appealing.
I think the least worse would be guillotine and firing squad.
Of the two, the firing squad is more dignified (but possibly more painful). I'd want to die standing up though, so I go with firing squad and hope that they make it quick.
armed with Varon-T disruptors
If I've been given the death penalty I've Fucked up pretty good.
How ever my last request would be to have Tera Patrick & Bree Olsen do me right before they fire those fuckers
of all the chicks in the world to choose from you'd choose those two mingers?
Check the link in my sig, THAT is a girl you should want to do you before death.
None of the above. I will never be committing a capital crime.
I plan to go as either an old man in my sleep... or with my face between a gorgeous brunette's legs. At least that way I'll get a taste of Heaven just before I go.
i'd prefer nuclear annihilation as the villain's self-destruct device goes off after i save the world.
on the list, i'll take firing squad.
Unless the firing squad missed every vital organ, it would be a slow and painful death wgile you bleed out.
Unless your one of the last of a very long list of executed people that day. It may take a couple of times to cut your head off.
Now that wouldn't be too bad, i wish that was an option.
Seppuku (or Harakiri), ritual suicide.
Of the choices given, I chose firing squad.
'Kay, but I'm pretty much already assured to go meet my friends there already -wouldn't mind actually meeting you there though!
Typical misunderstanding, that!
The blindfold isn't for the one dying: it's so the firing squad won't have to look the one they're killing in the eyes! -you won't have the choice!
Anyways: Out an air-lock without a space-suit! -my choice.
I first heard that from my uncle about forty years ago-- only it wasn't a blonde, brunette and redhead in his version.
I'd make it my last request. I'd call them cowards, so they'd have to.
