TFA:
At the time of his arrest, English language Saudi daily The Saudi Gazette ran an article entitled Magic Maids which said that 'we must face up to the threats from some maids and servants and their satanic games of witchcraft and sorcery, their robbery, murder, entrapment of husbands, corruption of children and other countless stories of crime that have been highlighted by both experts and victims of these crimes'.

Such barbaric, backwards thinking is okay because oil.

WeenerGord: Was that real? There was no sound or blood. Wouldn't there be a lot of blood?


I read somewhere that they drain a lot of the blood first to cut down on that.

From 1992-1997, the Psychic Friends Network infomercials were named top infomercial of the year by the Jordan-Whitney Greensheet.[5] The company declared bankruptcy in 1998 due to poor business decisions and spiraling competition.

Psychic Friends files for bankruptcy? You'd think they would have seen that coming.

This may have been true in old times where they drained the blood to actually make the person delirious and hallucinating and less resistant, in one like this parking lot killing it seems unlikely.

Yeah. Wouldn't you pretty much have to remove all the blood to stop it from spurting out in buckets when the head is cut off?

I think if you remove enough of it to lower the blood pressure it would stop excessive gushing. I don't know, it's just something I read somewhere once, might not be true at all.

well.......shock does curl the veins up pretty good. and the body can sense the drop in blood pressure and does do some odd things and the heart pretty much stops beating instantly so other then maybe one spurt there would not be many spurts, more of just a oo hey there is a hole in the system lets all drain out there

Thank merrie Old England and good Ol' BP. At the End of WWI when it came time to dismantle the Ottoman empire into its component footstools the British look around and says to themselves "'Cor this 'ere Oil stuff's getting pretty important. Be a lot easier for us to steal it, out from under these folks if we set up unstable countries riven internally by ethnic and religious hatreds for them to live in. That way they'll never be powerful or stable enough to stand up to us and say fark off".

ParaHandy: Humans are gullible and rarely apply critical thinking to beliefs they were raised with. The average IQ is 100.

/Depressing, isn't it?


You forgot to apply your critical thinking while sitting way up there on your high horse. The average IQ of humans will always be 100 no matter how much our overall intelligence as a group rises (or falls). That's because when the test itself is developed the mean score is set to equal 100. Additionally, almost all test are set to contain 95% of the takers within 2 standard deviations. Which is how I know you're IQ is almost certainly somewhere between 70 and 130. Though I'm guessing based on your eloquent and insightful post that like the majority of the polutation you actaully fall between 85 and 115.

However your insights into the depressing nature of statistics did cause me to laugh in a mirthless sort of way. So you've got that going for you, which is nice.

The beheadings I have seen on that website that specializes in carrying such content seem to be the bloodiest the longer it took to perform. The quicker the cleaner.

If you think this is immoral, Congratulations!!

You've made a moral judgment independent of the teachings of the Bible, or Qur'an.

Now ask yourself...."If I can make this moral judgment without help from the Bible, why should I follow any of the teachings in the Bible? Sure, some of the teachings are moral, but I could figure them out for myself, just as I did in this instance.".

They could have some cheerleaders, and maybe a comedian as an opening act, to warm up the crowd.
