Question if you had a way to build a machine that would humanely kill someone would you build it? 

 

Depends on who's going to use it and why. I'm generally against the taking of human life, but I recognize that in some circumstances it's the least-worst answer to the problem set. Also, what do we classify as "humane"? From what I understand of, two rounds to the back of the head is fairly humane for the exeutionee, but tended to have a negative psychological effect on the executioner.

This is along the lines I was thinking. It's not about being humane so much as the termination of a life and the loss it creates around it. I would also add that this counts for both homicide and suicide. If you're in a place where you are thinking of yourself, please talk to someone. That message is to anyone who may read it. Call 1-800-273-8255 for a free, confidential professional if you're having thoughts now. If it's been a longer running theme, talk to your doctor. If you have no one else, you can PM me and I'll get you my phone number and we can talk but it won't be immediate and I'm not a professional, just a concerned human and someone who has been there.

I was reading a story on another long drawn out execution requiring hard to come by drugs; the death being long and drawn out. That's what spurred this topic. Unpopular as the topic is the Death Penalty has been around since the dawn of Humans; it's not going anywhere. Killing someone is never going to be easy,  but if you could make it more surgical, where as you only have to strap them to a chair in which a computer then would take over; so less than what happens now with the drugs and the death itself is quick, no suffering and little in the way of clean up, no smell, no unhooking iv lines, just unstrap and bag.

when he makes a fat woman commen

Belittling someone based on appearance is unmanly no matter the appearance of the person doing the belittling. I do agree with you that it's particularly hypocritical when the belittler is also big.

I think a man should have his man card revoked when he makes a fat woman comment when he himself is 100+lbs overweight and isn't really a catch either. look in the f'n mirror buddy

... yup... how weak is a man if he has to point out perceived faults in another just to make himself feel better ?

 

brings to mind one of my fave quotes as of late:

Random strangers, yes. My male buddies are still fair game as far as I'm concerned. Particularly comb-overs. I'm grey-haired and you're bald, just accept it.

awkward boner story; so I was in an accident when I was younger (which instead of death is what I wish on all of my enemies) which fucked with my lower back; so while taking an athletic yoga class we were in child pose and I felt my hips and lower back release; everything got warm and I realized that I couldn't uh stand up for a few minutes, nothing like feeling like a creep in  yoga; I think the only thing worse would have been if I shit or pissed myself lmao

Not sure if this has been covered anywhere in this thread, but:

Question The First: Beard grooming.  For the first time ever, I have a beard that could legally be called a beard.  It's still scraggly, though. Does anyone have tips for taking care of it?

Question The Second: Shaving the dome. I told myself that when the thinning on top got to a certain point, I'd just bic it all and try to figure out my new aesthetic.  But now I have a beard.  I don't wanna go full shiny goatee, like my avatar, but I don't know where to STOP shaving, once I start shaving the top of my head. Where should the beard end? Does anyone have any good tips for that?

Thanks!

Answer the first: I trim out the 'scraggly' if they are sparse, long, weird hairs. I tend to put the guard on my beard trimmer to the longest setting and hit my whole jawline and cheeks. A moisturizing facial cleanser is a good help (I think Bad Dog (maybe big dog) makes one I get from walgreens/CVS. Works pretty well, sometimes I'll use a T-gel if I'm getting flaky).

 

Answer the second: honestly, the beard should end where ever you deem it to end. If it were me, I still have hair on top, I'd leave beard where ever beard was. On my noggin, that'd be near the top of the junction of ear to head (where there is a little break between hair hanging down and where it starts to 'grow' down). I ran a full goatee for awhile, went full beard cause I hate shaving

Shaving & beards. I have an opinion, but it's just me. I shave my head every other day. Not balding (maybe a getting a little thin right on top) but I have thick, curly hair. Anything longer than a high & tight and I end up with an ugly perm. I grew a handlebar mustache last year and I kind of like it. I may grow back my Van Dyke, and once I hit a lower weight, shave the handlebar.

 

Also, and this is just me. 

A goatee is a style of facial hair incorporating hair on a man's chin but not his cheeks.

A Van Dyke specifically consists of any growth of both a moustache and goatee with all hair on the cheeks shaven.

 

No moustache = Goatee

Moustache & beard = Van Dyke
