QotD: Execution

Question: If you were to be executed tomorrow, by what method would you opt to go?

My Answer: Well, electrocution and hanging are out. So is burning at the stake. Lethal injections and firing squads are pretty quick and painless, but hey, how about I just have Carey screw me to death? I'm not sure if that's an "execution" but it's good enough in my book!

  1. Medieval executions were endlessly creative, but they tended towards the very unpleasant (drawing and quartering, anyone?). For painlessness, I guess I'd lean towards the lethal injection -- in theory, it's supposed to be like falling asleep.

    If providing entertainment for the spectators is important, though, I think you've gotta go with the guillotine -- after they're done, they can mount your head on a spike, which guarantees memorable visuals for everyone involved (except me, of course).

  2. There's a variation on the firing squad: A chamber that looks like an indoor firing lane. They strap you to a chair, then they shoot you from about 25 feet or so. The weapon is in a solid mount, so they fix the aim. One shot and you are gone.

  3. Death by Snoo-Snoo, I'd take that too.

  4. A ride with the space shuttle. And then later a walk outside. I see the earth, the sun, the universe. A last blink and my helmet will be opened by remote.

  5. Being chased of a cliff as in Monty Python's Meaning Of Life.

  6. Strange question! Well I guess I'd have to pick jumping out of a plane over a beautiful area of land. At least I'd go out looking at beauty. A variation on Booga's comment...since I don't like the idea of getting killed by space somehow!
