Don't know, probably could not execute it unless he is already dieing and in pain, but I might fail even then, why do you ask?

Killing someone for fun is a time honored tradition endorsed by our forefathers since time immemorial. Moreover it is our not only our heritage, but our true nature as humans.....just joking...no I would not. Life is sacred. Would I kill someone who gets on my nerves? I would fantasize about it for sure, but once again the answer is no.

No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

so your elaboration is: -life is sacred- then?

Yes that is my elaboration. Life is sacred, and the taking of it...animal or human...should not be undertaken without good reason after appropriate consideration.

*johnny cash, a-moanin' about bein' in folsom prison: "but i shot a man in reno, just to watch him die..." *


heinlein's lazarus long wanted nosiness to be a capital offence, but slicing yr nosy neighbor's throat will get you talked about... hehheh...

& john wesley harding once shot a man for snoring too loud...

but if folks could be eliminated just for being irritating, there'd be a lot less folks around (but possibly, manners would begin to improve :wink: ...)




for truly friendly advice on modes of mortification, check out jubal harshaw's little ditty (in heinlein's novel SIASL) on why poison is the best way to go... (gee, i may have posted it here a year or two ago, jus' possibly, heh...)

only if I thought there would be no repurcussions :smile:

life and death are both teachers. 

sometime's a person's death can be the ultimate teacher.  It can make that person's soul realize where it went wrong. 

I believe in reincarnation, so to me, death is just another way of telling someone: "Don't behave so foolishly next time."

could I kill for fun?  yes.  I have before (not people- just animals, but there is really little difference). 

Would I kill for fun?  Probably not.  but I can't rule it out.  I think its kind of conditional on how I am treated.  If everyone wants to play nice, then so will I.  But if people wanna fuck me around, maybe I decide that playing nice isn't so important anymore. 

:wink:

In a language sense, I think everyone here could; we all have the potential to kill others.

I agree. It is important to distinguish between "could" and "would."

I am physically capable of killing someone with my bare hands. I have learned self-defense techniques which could result in someone's death.

Would I use these techniques for fun or out of annoyance? No.

You've been holding out on me. Most likely so I would drop my guard and be vulnerable to your attack. HA! I have trained in the 7th plane of Tendra with the Omecks. You think your puny tricks will work against me. I defeated Mafu with only one technique. My martial art is surely superior to yours. Bring it on! And none of that Tantra shit. That's cheating.
