Peter, thanks for the kind compliment and the entertaining story. You made that bat into a more interesting and sentimental souvenir (post-swap) than it otherwise would have been. I also agree with you that I would far rather prefer to visit the Jim Beam distillery than the Louisville Slugger factory.

I had a friend visit the Jack Daniels distillery once - he brought back a gallon of the water they use. 

No one got samples, the distillery is in a dry county !!!!

My rewrite:

Tech support: Ok, Bob, type a capital B, then press enter.
 
Customer named Bob: Okay.
 
Tech support: Did you type it?
 
Bob:  Yes 

Tech support: And what does it say now?
 
Bob: A, B.
 
Tech support: You have a B?
 
Bob: Um, yes.
 
Tech support: Good.
 
Bob: Wait. Was that supposed to be a lower cased "a" or an upper cased A.
 
Tech support: Which A?
 
Bob: The one before the B
 
Tech support: You have an A before the B?
 
Bob: Yes, you told me to type A, B.
 
Tech support: No, a B. Type a B. That's what I said.
 
Bob:  And I did! Do you want me to type it again or something?
 

 


 
Bob: [Pause] That's the one with two loops, right?

Do you prefer firing squad, the rope, or old sparky?

Public hangings should resume.

The rope is more environment-friendly.
No carbon emissions, no mining, and re-usable.

Hanging actually seems more humane by long drop

Wow, the humour has gone off the scale all of a sudden! I don't know much about the gas method, but there are in fact questions about the humaneness of lethal injection. It is quite a complex procedure. First, a general anaesthetic is injected, enough to kill, though not certainly. Next is a muscle relaxant, enough to kill, though again not certainly. Last is an immediately lethal agent.

The problem is that different people react to anaesthetics differently. Without the supervision of a qualified anaesthetist, which executions do not have, it is not possible to be certain that the initial anaesthetic dose put the person under. If not, the relaxant would prevent them indicating it. And the lethal agent would cause great albeit brief agony, of which, due to the relaxant, there would be no sign.

If you're going to have executions, I think a competently-handled hanging is the best way, it at least appears to bring instantaneous death. I am not in favour of capital punishment, not because I think it is wrong in principle but because I don't trust the police and courts to always get it right. You can give someone back their liberty, but not their life.

Now, someone tell a joke.
