digital video montage dealing with guillotine execution in the early part of the 20th century; most notably that of eugene weidmann in 1939. the enthusiasm of the crowd, as well as the fact that the event was filmed from an apartment window, became major factors in the french governments decision to ban public executions. as a result, the weidmann execution was the last public guillotining in france before the death penalty was finally abolished in 1981. musical setting is the viola solo "elegie" by igor stravinsky, performed by miles hoffman..

Why are the French so good at making sauces???
And I don't mean fucking condiments - HP* and Ketchup are NOT sauces.
Hollandaise - named after the first Frenchman to climb Mount Everast, is a
Buchinklock - named after the first Frenchman to die during
autoasphyxiation (wanking with a belt round the neck - like Michael
Hutchinse, David Carradine and Ronald Reagan died doing).

The French Sauciere trains for 14 years to perfect his art.
During his 10th year he lives above the snowline in the Alps and meditates
of the sounds and smells of nature.
He learns out to make sauce from just noise and ambience
When he is ready to graduate as a fully qualified sauciere (one of only 6
that graduate every year) he says an oath to the body of Napoleon and burns
the picture of a saint in his hands......

There's nothing gay about French cooking.

*HP is Houses of Parliament 'Sauce' (actually a condiment, made in

It was often practiced to hold up the just cut-off head by the hair so it
and the audience could look at each other. Tales of up to 30 seconds,
responding by blinking, once twice but failing to reach tree times, and
making faces after being slapped. Because real evidence is covered up,
it's probably not good.

Death is not instant with the guillotine. The brain and the body do not
"instantly" die. Because it is so swift, the head and body go on for
several minutes. They say the eyes can actually see right after the
beheading. Death is never "instant" unless pulverized, like in a plane
crash where the plane smashes into a mountain or the groud at high speed.

@ipage1 Thank you commenting. Most humans are heavily conditioned by
religion and misconception on life. Each one that awakes from the daylight
dream is an enormous step because he enlightens all around without doing
anything. So, if you "know" you become responsible. Waken up and we will be
just fine.
