Russian Roulette isn't usually a execution technique, usually used for torture, but I'll put it in

Who would want to be executed by impalement or crucifixion?

Hey, you never know

What about the body the cooling technic used in some heart surgeries? Quote-•Blood is cooled as it passes through the heart-lung machine. In turn, this cooled blood lowers body temperature when it reaches all of the body parts.-end quote. Http://www.Texasheart.Org/HIC/Topics/Proced/
Black-Jesus says2015-04-06T20:34:11.3824884-05:00
@Mathgeekjoe, That wouldn't really be a execution method, nor a common one; there are plenty of execution methods I came by that weren't really common
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-06T20:52:17.3351179-05:00
After you get the person cooled down, they are basically dead, then you can do anything to kill them. It is the only painless method I see that doesn't mess up the body.

@UtherPenguin JESUS ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Black-Jesus says2015-04-06T20:58:05.6140201-05:00
"lethal injection" is pretty painless, and "bullet execution" is painless as long as the executioner has any idea of what he is doing; "bullet execution" is my personal preference
Reeseroni says2015-04-06T21:00:54.3871744-05:00
@Black-Jesus THE LETHAL INJECTION IS HORRIBLY PAINFUL! What in the world are you talking about??? Http://www.Amnestyusa.Org/our-work/issues/death-penalty/lethal-injection So is death by bullets! You feel the bullets pass through your head or body, and you do live through the experience, you just die when blood stops flowing to your brain- and your brain suffers enough damage.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-06T21:04:05.1871051-05:00
Lethal injection, even when it isn't botch can cause a person to be paralyzed but still feel themselves dying painfully. It is kind of being trapped in your body without being able to do anything to say you are in pain.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-06T21:06:08.3311369-05:00
"So is death by bullets! You feel the bullets pass through your head or body, and you do live through the experience, you just die when blood stops flowing to your brain- and your brain suffers enough damage." Wrong, you can't feel any pain in the brain. But death isn't instantaneous from a bullet unless the bullet goes through the primal brain.
Reeseroni says2015-04-06T21:10:31.1776022-05:00
@mathgeekjoe I apologize for suggesting that you feel pain in your brain, but the brain lacks the nerves and pain sensors to tell when pain occurs, because it is fully surrounded by the skull. What I meant, it that when the bullets pass through your head, you will feel the pain of your skin tearing on your head, and the loss of blood will eventually kill you. The brain itself does not feel pain, but your skin can.
Black-Jesus says2015-04-06T21:15:09.9215215-05:00
Lethal injection CAN be painless, there are poisons out there that cause hardly any pain, maybe I should've said that
SamStevens says2015-04-07T01:27:14.1695504-05:00
What about death via the Brazen Bull?
Kreakin says2015-04-07T18:45:30.8947344-05:00
That's prob the worst.
Black-Jesus says2015-04-08T09:46:53.5109601-05:00
Nah, impalement is the worst it could take days for the stake to go far enough into you to kill you, if you don't dehydrate first. When Vlad the Impaler was in power, his record was that one lady survived a staked for 5 days; she had a conversation with a visiting merchant outside the walls of the city.
Nac says2015-04-10T17:07:50.3641430-05:00
If you play Russian Roulette in this scenario, what happens if you get lucky. Do you go free? Or do you keep going until you reach the bullet?
Black-Jesus says2015-04-10T17:09:21.8371345-05:00
Yeah, that's why I was sorta hesitant to put it in: let's just say that you get to go to prison if you can fire three times without dying
