Guillotine...... Clean cut, no head, no pain, done...... Even the best hangman can make a mistake and then you're dangling there with flailing legs, spastic twitching, and gagging as you choke out. That has to hurt..... With my luck, I'd end up with some hangman apprentice who can only tie a square knot.

Funny. What could go wrong with a guillotine though?

Best Answer

From what I've read, not much since the thing was always tested for the audience for added drama.... Leave it to the French to get a crowd on edge. At least I hope...... With my luck, they'd whack me during a rain storm and the rails would warp stopping the blade after it penetrated a quarter of the way through my spine..... Well, I'll scratch capital offense crimes off the to do list.

Guillotine; because its quicker. No suffering.

Best Answer

I've heard sometimes it isn't so smooth. Also that the wealthier people back in the day would pay to attempt to ensure the blade was as sharp as could be.

It's better than me freaking out, trying to hold on or undo the noose as my body bucking about.

The latter, and why? I guess I think it's more humane, quicker.
