Politics / Re: Canada needs capital punishment for this one...
« on: August 06, 2008, 02:53:43 PM »

 it more or less supported Focalor's position that capital punishment shouldn't be swift and merciful. Not a position I necessarily endorse, but one I've seen before.

You did bring up an interesting point though ... using capital punishment as a proof against the convict performing the crime again. Doesn't incarceration accomplish the same thing? And in this particular case, are you sure the accused would be a repeat offender?

Swift and merciful? Well that depends. If the person who committed the murder used a swift and merciful means to cause the victims death... sure. But EXACTLY as you said in another post I didn't quote, why should a savage and selfish murderer be afforded the luxury of a pain-free serene death at an early age while the rest of the world must (usually) suffer and agonize through their own. Dying... PHYSICALLY HURTS! Heart attacks HURT! Cancer HURTS! Fatal accidents HURT! These people (murderers) have shown that their own self-centered motives cause them to rationalize committing certain acts. They feel that their own instant gratification outweighs the needs of others and the laws of man which they have been made well aware of since birth. My views on capital punishment are simply a reciprocation of their own disregard for EVERYTHING else. If you choose to be someone who considers yourself so important that you can mentally rationalize stepping over the line that society has drawn and made you well aware of, and you choose to completely disregard "society" in that way, then "society" reserves the right to disregard your importance and status as a thing worthy of having an uninterrupted life. Personally, I no longer view the person as a PERSON at all, just a stupid parasitic animal with no worth, an ITEM to be thrown away at will. I don't know if I've described my rationalization FOR capital punishment well enough, hopefully I have.

As far as the administering of the capital punishment, as Haunted mentioned, the consequences are "supposed" to be an effective method for discouraging someone to repeat the offense. Just as PeeWee mentioned, you go sticking heads on poles for everyone to see and post a sign beside them saying "These men were convicted of X offense", that will CERTAINLY deter further X offenses. Scientifically, such phenomenon is referred to as "conditioned response". If you zap a mouse with electricity when he goes to eat the cheese, before long he will refuse to eat the cheese. Humans are animals too. They can be conditioned and trained just like any other animal.

I also feel that the method of death should be comparable to the method the murderer used. If they shot their victim in the head, they should get a nice execution by firing squad or the electric chair. If they stabbed their victim, they should be killed in a most cruel fashion. Stabbing is not always the same as shooting someone, especially when it is completely premeditated. It satisfies the murderers sadistic tendencies because it is a more intimate form of murder. They must look at the person and use plenty of physical pressure to insert the stabbing instrument. It shows that the person isn't concerned with the suffering of others AT ALL. These types of people should be tortured and executed publicly. Lions, stretching, mutilation, who cares. As long as it's agonizing and intentionally prolonged. People go to see horror movies with fake gore, why not sell tickets to public executions. The money could either go to support the justice system, or the family of the victim.

As far as the "mentally ill" commiting such acts... they should be dealt with NO DIFFERENTLY. If they are mentally deficient and of weaker constitutions than the rest of us "normal" people, that's all the more the reason to execute them. Yet another progressive social philosophy I keep is a belief in the pursuit of eugenics. Perhaps if we ourselves weed out the ones who are psychopaths, we can effectively remove or diminish the dominant malfunctioning genes that would facilitate the development of such personality disorders and behaviors.

TEO!  :doofywave:

It's called "blevel.bsp". I'm not sure if it's in the individual maps for download at TS, but I'm pretty sure it's included in the "all-maps.zip".

Hehe, yeah, you got a point there. Image removed. I'm not sure if the MPAA ever got a chance to review and rate that one. I'm not even sure that an NC-17 rating would be quite enough, lol.

Yeah, been there, done that. The only rap I've ever thought was particularly interesting, groundbreaking and talented was Outkast's Stankonia album. The rest of it is so monotonous and boring. You hear one song about having ho's and dough, you've heard 'em all.

Cannibal Holocaust - 3/10

(for gore: 9.5/10)

All I can say is... wow. Even I was somewhat horrified. From what I've heard, this movie has always been widely hated. It contains some VERY graphic scenes of mutilation of both humans and animals. The animal mutilation is 100% real, and the human mutilation appears real. From what I've read, the film maker had to go out of his way to prove that no one was actually killed in the making of it.

That's a neat little map, I was thinking about adding it to the EoM server a few days ago, but I figured it was a little too small. The CPU fan blows you up into the air. If you crawl under the transformer and touch one of the leads going into the PC board, it'll zap you to death.
