actually the guillotine is the “most humane”. no pain, very fast and doesn’t tend to fail.

Yep! And you don't even need a doctor to verify that death occurred.

All the elaborate execution techniques are ridicukous, put a 9mm slug in the base of the skull and load them into a box!

Great idea, but if we put them in the box first it would save money on the clean up. We could be nice and grant them a 1/2 a day stay of execution while they dig their grave.

But firing squads already pass muster.

“I support capital punishment. And if executioners were selected by lottery, I’d do my part. I’d pull the switch, pull the trigger, release the trap door, drop the cyanide pellets - with no problem.”

Few will, however. Juries often go wobbly on the actual imposition of the death penalty too.

In most societies, executioners are professionals. They don’t get squeamish and they don’t botch the job.

Hanging by short rope is death by strangulation.

Hanging by long rope is death by breaking the neck.
