Except people can hold their breath much longer than 2 minutes?
@The nOly One, I can hold my breath for over 6 minutes
@The nOly One, you probably believe that birds are real and that the sky isn’t made of LEDs, don’t you?
@lemongrenade, prove it
@WelI Obviously, just did
@lemongrenade, ok I believe it
@WelI Obviously, "science"
@The nOly One, that assumes an abnormally large breath prior to holding it. If you cut someone’s air supply without any warning they’ll expire much sooner than if you give them time to prepare
@lemongrenade, what's your strategy
@idubbbz, wire and 2 sticks does the job
Now engage manual breathing mode
On average your brain can go 3-5 minutes without oxygen before being damaged. Even that isn’t death, not right away anyways.
If you want to get real uncomfortable, consider that information in relation to a guillotine.
@Canis Arktos, That’s why they would pick up the head and turn it around to show the body.
Someone even did a ‘2 for yes, 1 for no’ test with a head of an executed criminal on a platter when shjt that that didn’t get you locked up.
@Bad Suggestions, I heard about this 2 for yes .... I’ll call it a study... it really does make you think. I for one hope someone I care for talks to me for a few minutes after my heart stops. Tell me some stupid jokes as I fade away.
And if we do continue with capital punishment, I think some drugs or a spike through the brain stem (not all that different from our current slaughter of many animals) would be most humane. Firing squad at the heart might make you drop quick. Might even put your brain in shock such that it doesn’t hurt, but you can’t garentee that. And blowing the head up seems... I know I’m saying this of someone on death row but.,, disrespectful to the human and their family. I nice spike through the stem and scramble of the brain might have them twitch some but that’s making us uncomfortable, not them.
So if you want to die you have to hold your breath? I suck at it, I don't want to live forever.
