I think, given its 2016, a nod here:

I'll get to the top five in a while

Im for hanging. Public anyway. Nothing like injection. Spectacle. Amuser les autres

Firing squad ok.

Chair is foolishly showy

Beheading is topical but guillotine is again more about the imagery than the act so when i say beheading im talking axe or scimitar, clean sweep mind none of this youtubey sawing with a fuckin penknife shit

the soviet style single shot to the brainstem could be a goer for these austere times

after the uk leaves the sclerotic confines of the european union and the council of europe, how much of the ensuing 30-40% growth in gdp should be devoted to executions?

Essex MP Priti Patel, whom it is customary to describe as a "rising star" of the Tory party, made her first appearance on BBC's Question Time this week, and set off a Twitter storm.

Just hours after the execution of Troy Davis, in Georgia, she issued a call to bring back hanging.

If we take her words literally, she would see others, as well as murderers, swinging from a rope. She mentioned rapists three times, and paedophiles once.

Do u attribute any particular import to the ratio there?

four years pass...

did we discuss this

Thinking back to when my sister made cakes professionally and I went with her to a cake fair and they had a decorating competition and one of the themes was 1916 and someone made James Connolly strapped to the chair being shot. Out of cake and icing.

idc if we did I just want icing James Connolly in the shooting chair saved somewhere for posterity

Which piece of this cake would you eat first

mardheamac (gyac), Sunday, 27 March 2022 13:34 (two years ago) link

pure practicality but i'd say the wall has the most cake in it

What if you ate the British soldiers though, could icing Connolly escape?

mardheamac (gyac), Sunday, 27 March 2022 13:55 (two years ago) link

my first instinct was to bite the heads off the soldiers obv, but i like cake more than icing. pacifist option = just eat the rifles

a spectre is haunting your mom (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 27 March 2022 13:57 (two years ago) link

the picture doesn't look like a cake?


now this, this is a cake

on this day in history, the Bolsheviks executed the Tsar -- I felt the need to bump this thread.

This is a sticking point in downton abbey. It is the moment their communist cab driver becomes disillusioned with lenin.

treeship., Monday, 17 July 2023 18:55 (nine months ago) link

why's it always the driver. the car as a symbol of modernity interfering with the old noblesse?

Daniel_Rf, Monday, 17 July 2023 19:22 (nine months ago) link

should be downtown
