Guillotine sounds ok too.

So you'd rather take the chance of a shot missing a vital organ and bleeding out or the blade not being quite sharp enough to go through all the way on the first drop?

Easier to keep a blade sharp than most other methods, especially if they aren't lopping off a dozen heads a week French Revolution style. Maintenance is easy. All the other methods have a lot of room for bad endings, guillotine is pretty automatic if the blade is sharp. No human error factors, just a big heavy blade and gravity.

Based on the way the cops shoot, I'm counting on it.

I've seen two negligent discharges with firearms in my life. Both were from cops.

I had a negligent discharge once. Longest two weeks of my life.

If you're worried about pain or user error, ask for the bolt gun.

Apparently FB has allowed users to custom specify their gender. Cissies can now proudly proclaim their cis-dom!

Musing: even gender must be done special flower style?

Stop being so hetero-normative.

CNN has a big headline article right now on Biden and how it appears he's positioning himself for another run at being POTUS. He would be the oldest party candidate nominated in history and the oldest POTUS ever sworn in to his first term. Why does the CNN article not once mention his age given the fixation that was on Bob Dole's and John McCain's (both of whom were younger)?

Haven't we had enough old white guys?

Grandpa Joe doesn't look/act as "old," would be my guess. It's never about substance with the big network.

I was curious so I went and checked, and it seems that not only would Biden be older, but Hillary would only be 3 years younger than MCCain when he ran for president.

You are probably correct. I guess the lesson is military service, life threatening war injuries, and years of torture will age a man. Biden took the smart move in getting five draft deferments. wink.gif
