NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee inmate's final words were "let's rock" moments before he became the first man executed in the electric chair in that state since 2007, put to death for the killings of two men during a drug deal-turned-robbery decades ago.

In opting for the electric chair over a lethal injection as Tennessee allowed him, Zagorski had argued it would be a quicker and less painful way to die.

Wait... what?

He became part of the resistance, like Hillary should too.

They hook the electrodes up with conductors that are about the thickness of welding cable. Very low resistance.

Initial potential is about 2000V. Full-body resistance is around 300 ohms, so that’s about 7 amps, assuming there’s not too much voltage drop on the transformer windings. They drop it down to around 1000 after the initial jolt; if they didn’t, there’d be unpleasant thermal effects; 14 kilowatts can heat things up pretty fast. Even with the back-off, clean-up is no fun, and ventilator fans do welcome duty.

That kind of current passing through your chest will kill you mighty dead. “Is that all you got!” is only in the movies.

Well, who does he think he is? Al Bundy?

Not bad for last words, but I hope to come up with something more original when I go out.

That was a shocking turn of events. I guess heart attack while having sex with 10 women was out?

“To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub, for in that sleep of death what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil, must give us pause.

And this was probably as close to heaven as he ever will get unless he accepted JC.
