Sure. I can't be the only one that watched those Faces of Death movies when I was a kid.

No sir! You were not! Confused

Haven't watched this latest vid, though, and I'm not going to! It'd just make me angry!

Same reason people went to see public hangings in olde England or the guillotining of the nobility when France was civilising itself.

Dodgy

But what do I know? I don't even slow down when passing a road accident that's being dealt with.

Just no.

17 June 1939, Eugène Weidmann became the last person in France to be publicly executed by guillotine. He had been convicted of multiple kidnappings and murders.
[Image: Last+public+execution+by+guillotine,+France,+1939+5.jpg]
Quote:In the days following the execution, the press was especially indignant at the way the crowd had behaved. Paris-Soir denounced the crowd as “disgusting”, “unruly”, “jostling, clamoring, whistling.” The unruly crowd delayed the execution beyond the usual twilight hour of dawn, enabling clear photographs, and one short film to be taken. After Weidmann’s execution outside Versailles prison, women awaited the departure of police to dip their handkerchiefs in Weidmann’s blood, which stained the sidewalk. After the event the authorities finally came to believe that “far from serving as a deterrent and having salutary effects on the crowds” the public execution “promoted baser instincts of human nature and encouraged general rowdiness and bad behavior”. The “hysterical behavior” by spectators was so scandalous that French president Albert Lebrun immediately banned all future public executions.
It would be another 38 years before France entirely removed execution as a means of punishment.

Yup. People would pack a picnic basket and bring it down to the Place de la Concorde to watch the beheadings of royalty and anyone else that happened to get in the way of the French Revolution. . Even in the 1920's here in the good ol' USA people came out to see hangings in kind of a festival atmosphere. I don't get it.

The French have banned the guillotine and the Muslim head scarf. They are very head conscious

RE: Have you watched the beheadings?
No, you couldn't pay me to watch any sort of snuff film. I don't even like watching animal's get (actually) killed on film.

Well honestly, you probably could pay me to watch it (as long as I am in no danger of being blamed for any crimes). Just might be in the realm of $100,000 +.

As much as I'd prefer to not expose myself to terrible events, that doesn't mean they don't exist. I can already conceptualize it, but watching it would be so sad and tragic.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

I once saw some foot of someone supposedly having his hand cut off in some middle east country and the guy wasn't screaming or anything but it has stayed with me till this day.

But it has been playing on my mind having seen the still photo of American journalist James Foley before he got beheaded. The knife just seems really small and I can't help thinking it must have been a really horrible way to die. To those that saw it, was it quick?

[Image: foley-still.jpg?w=300&h=216]

I always wonder why they always sit there so compliantly, knowing that in a few seconds they are going to die while this piece of human garbage saws their head off with a dull knife..I have heard they drug them so they will be more compliant, but still, how does one just sit there? I understand fear, and being frozen from the shock of your impending death, but I would like to think I would fight, even if it was a head butt and a 3 foot run before I am gunned down, surely that is better than 1) Giving into their plan, 2) dying slowly...

RE: Have you watched the beheadings?
I watched the video of Nick Berg years ago. It is truly one of those things you can't un-see.

*** Not for the squeamish ***

What stuck with me most was how merciless it was. I mean it's not enough that you're cutting this persons head off, but did you really have to pick the dullest blade you had!? And it took so long to do the act. I imagined them using a sword at least and needing a couple chops... I will never watch another one.
