tenchi4u: “Blowing the gun”, considered one of the most gruesome execution methods. Personally I find scaphism (“the boats”) far more gruesome.
Mange-Tout: I think it was quite nice that they provided a pile of rocks for him to stand on.
Retireegeorge: I’m thinking you are conscious for a while with a gaping smoking hole in your chest and everyone making small talk while you open and close your mouth like a fish and fall to the ground. Hopefully you fall facing up and get to see the sky before blackness overtakes you.
holylovin69: So they put a person right at the end of the canon?
