(Maximus)   Ok, we pay way too much taxes for people on death row. So, why don't we bring back gladiators like the Romans, complete with swords, nets, tritons and tigers. What other weapons and rules?   (images.google.com) divider line 126

You feel that way now.

But what if you were on death row, submitter, falsely accused and wrongly convicted of a crime someone else committed?

You'd be singing a different tune when that hungry lion got ready to chomp on ya.

There's only one rule: THERE ARE NO RULES!
 
2006-10-19 07:49:19 PM
cars and chainsaws.
 
2006-10-19 07:50:02 PM
at least, more chainsaws than the romans used.
 
2006-10-19 07:50:26 PM
HickPrincess pretty much nailed it. I now have nothing to say:(

Because it's not the killing of the prisoner that's expensive, it's the keeping them in jail and alive while they work their way through the legal system. How does your plan eliminate that?
 
2006-10-19 07:51:03 PM
Next year on Fox, probably.
 
2006-10-19 07:51:29 PM
no giving long crappy diatribes and looking like Russel Crowe
 
2006-10-19 07:51:33 PM
And why the living fark is this green?

Then kiss me, you fool.

BECAUSE I SAID SO.

Bullsh*t.

no freakin cheating.

yeah, I'm looking at you two, Master and Blaster.

Duty admin tonight is trying too hard to get something started.
 
2006-10-19 07:55:07 PM
Current version

Judge: I sentence you to death

*prisoner sits in jail for 10 years*

New Version

Judge: I sentence you to death, bailiff, carry it out

*Bailiff pulls gun and carries out sentence*

You have powers to make things green then?
Can you make things not green, too? 'Cause I've got this... um... condition.

Is someone trying to be witty or just needs to leave the basement for some fresh air?
 
2006-10-19 07:57:48 PM
Clearly, submitter has never seen Spartacus.
 
2006-10-19 07:57:48 PM
The false conviction rate is too damn high for that kind of shiat, submitter.
 
2006-10-19 07:57:48 PM
1. Contestants must wear tophats and formally introduce themselves prior to tea.

2. No facial hair.

3. Pointy iron bras are not to be used on Sundays.

4. Remember, disembowel-mint is not a lifesaver flavor.

Well, at least we get some alone time until the beast get here.
 
2006-10-19 07:58:11 PM
Because throwing the Christians to the lions is frowned upon on Fark.
 
2006-10-19 07:58:21 PM
Yeah, the Romans, that's a good culture to emmulate.
 
2006-10-19 07:58:39 PM

Still trying out for the Guinnes World Record on Longest Toenails? Ain't happenin man, ain't happenin.
 
2006-10-19 07:58:41 PM
Monthly events( on pay per view of course)
12 men start, fight to the death,until only one man stands.
New Years Eve, big pay per view event with all the winners from the year battling it out.

The name is Green Discharge! Duh.
 
2006-10-19 07:58:59 PM
As long as we work that fabulous Richard Dawson into it somehow, I'll be happy.
 
2006-10-19 07:59:17 PM
I am Spartacus!
 
2006-10-19 07:59:26 PM
Clearly, submitter has never read the constitution. But then again neither has W.
 
2006-10-19 07:59:36 PM
Wanebo: Duh.

I thought it was pretty obvious...
 
2006-10-19 08:00:03 PM

2006-10-19 08:00:08 PM
Like the robot rebellion and the alien invasion, the death row gladiator uprising is inevitable.
 
2006-10-19 08:00:13 PM
Well, we could all sit around and pontificate about the cost of keeping one prisoner on death row versus what it would cost to send said prisoner to Harvard, but that's not going to solve anything, now is it?

We need to worry more about making certain that the right people are in prison, not worrying about how to kill them faster.

Lots of people believe in the death penalty, until someone they know or care about is convicted. Then it's different.

What Fark are you reading? I think most of us would be happy to throw them to the lions.
 
2006-10-19 08:01:12 PM
puskunk: What Fark are you reading?

The one where post after post recounts the travails of the poor, beleaguered Christians.
 
2006-10-19 08:01:20 PM
Can we sell the loser's organs on the open market to offset costs to the taxpayer?

/hell, the winner's organs, too?
 
2006-10-19 08:02:02 PM
I'm still a fan of Escape from New York. They don't want to live by society's rules? Give them their own.
 
2006-10-19 08:02:40 PM
OOOOH! I know! We'll make them eat a bunch of rotten food and then vomit on each other ... TO THE DEATH!

Huh?
 
2006-10-19 08:02:41 PM
George Carlin did a whole bit on this. We could have Monday Night Crucifixions, right on the "Home" and "Visitor" goalposts of college and NFL games. And we'd put the whole thing on Pay-Per-View to balance the budget.

No. You see, I wear khakis to work a lot, and I'm afraid of spotting after using the urinals. Sometimes shaking just isn't a reliable method, so to be sure, I wring it out...

[bastardization of an old Buddy Hackett joke]
 
2006-10-19 08:04:54 PM
Some of you people are taking this question way to seriously.

What other weapons and rules?

The only weapon allowed is circular logic.

The only rule is no playing by the rules.
 
2006-10-19 08:04:56 PM
(I'll take "WTF, why was this greenlit?" for $400, Alex.)

First, I want backup for the assertion that we pay "way too much taxes" for it. How much is it and why is it too much?

Second, one could argue that it's barbaric to find sport in the death of human beings.

Third, if you really want to cap human beings in as realistic a manner as possible, you play Counter-Strike or San Andreas. You can even teabag your victim after you kill him for maximum humiliation.

i think PETA would have a thing or two to say about prisoners fighting lions and tigers

That's just Bevets trying to be a bunch of places at once.
