OMFG.. CNN is discussing the hanging process with an expert on hanging
Does it cause pain? Will Saddam suffer? How does the neck break?

"Once the vertebrae is broken, then what?" "The jugular vein in compressed and oxygen is cut off" "Dead in 3 minutes"

It simply doesn't get any sicker or more pathetic than what I just witnessed.

1. They were doing that last night, too, if I recall correctly.
Bunch of fucking sickos. Only a live broadcast of the hanging could possibly bring that shithole any lower, and I'm not totally ruling that out, either.

:puke:

2. How do you become an expert on hanging?
I thought that it wasn't allowed anymore?

18. well there's auto-erotic asphyxiation, so there's a bit of hanging going around
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 02:05 PM by pitohui
i don't know how much takes place as a legal punishment around the world but there is a small but apparently dedicated number of fetishists in the usa who hang themselves to enhance orgasm

perhaps the expert is one of these or (more likely) has studied these

it is believed to be quite a nice way to go, although obviously we only get trip reports from those who don't actually die!

Obviously freedom-poop smells much sweeter than CIA-puppet-poop.

14. No, it's just plain sick.
And the CNN news whore seemed very excited asking her sick questions.

How do you know people want to know about it? Because the newz said so?

19. Ask around. See if people are curious.
I know when anything else happens, the news people go into the mechanics of it.

I'm not aware of morbid curiosity being an indicator of any psychological disfunction. Maybe someone who knows better can correct me.

28. Not only morbid, but also voyeuristic, crude and in extremely bad taste
Must be a slow news day at CNN. I expect them to act in a more responsible, professional manner than this, for crying out loud.

12. What talking head (on Faux?) was "waterboarded"
then concluded, "hey, it's not so bad"?

He could volunteer for a similar special on hanging. "Hey! It's not so GARGHGHGH...."


as long as we're being tasteful

15. I think that was either Hannity or O'Reilly.
Both of them disgusting pieces of humanity, of course, so forgive me if I confuse them in my mind.

20. My mother said O'Reilly is a genius and meant it.
I didn't know how to respond to that so I just said, "As you said, people can disagree." I guess I was a little disappointed that she would fall for such a low-rent clown.

21. One could argue that he's a genius when it comes to manipulating the sheeple,
but that would require him to be detached from the subject matter. I think he actually believes the neocon nonsense he spews, which makes him twice as foolish, in some ways, as the masses.

13. Death by hanging is a nasty, ignominous end.
They are rendering a final insult to Saddam by hanging him. I'm sure he would prefer to be shot.

Maybe they can hang his body upside-down in Baghdad Square, for the amusement of bush. :sarcasm:

16. The Italians kicked, hit, and spit on the hanged corpse of
Mussolini and his mistress. God knows what will happen to Saddam's corpse.

23. i wouldn't assume that anyone would prefer being shot to hanging
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 02:15 PM by pitohui
a dirty little secret of hanging is that for many people it's pleasurable, that's why we have the problem of people accidentally killing themselves when they hang themselves to intensify orgasm

we have a gun porn culture and i suppose we perceive being shot as being somehow more manly than being hanged, but i don't know how accurate our perceptions are, probably being killed is always a bit undignified and messy however it happens

37. Depends on the noose or the bullet, I suppose.
I'm just saying that being shot is more "honorable" than being hanged, and I'm presuming this from Saddam's culture. (I mean, if one were to gain any dignity from being executed at all, that is.)

I believe the death by auto-erotic hanging is not quite the same as being dropped, say, 15 feet and dangling and kicking, if you can kick when your neck breaks, as it often will.

For info on death by hanging, gunshot, falling, et cetera, I recommend Suicide and Attempted Suicide by Geo Stone. He elaborates on the mechanism of death. Also another book called How We Die, but I haven't read that one.

25. Sick and disgusting.
Think about how the MSM told us they couldn't show the caskets or the funerals of our dead soldiers because of privacy and good taste issues.

But they're salivating over an execution by hanging.

What kind of world is this?

27. I heard this early today and was sickened. There really are no
words to describe how disgusting this all is. The right is screaming for this execution to be televised and CNN is giving us a detailed accounting of exactly what will physically be happening. I can't think of anything I've heard that is more repugnant than the coverage and commentary surrounding all of this.

con-servative media knows how to serve up pornography to feed the sexual fantasies of wingnuts.

Where the fuck is the U.N. while this travesty is allowed to take place? I think it might help if Carter and Clinton spoke out now too.

35. Always the experts .
I am so sick of these so called experts . How can one ever tell if one qualifies as an expert ?

So far to date nothing has ever been solved by experts that I can recall . All the solutions seem to be from unknown people who stay out of the lime light .

As one other poster commented , "how does noe become an expert on hanging , have they tested this out personally and come back to life to tell the exact feeling of the ordeal ? It's like expressing what it is like to die .

You know, at some point people of conscience are going to have to bond together and truly start boycotting these sorry-ass "news" networks.
