Congratulations! You've upset the wrong people and you are to be put to death immediately without hope of survival. Would you choose to be chained to the top of a Mountain to Freeze to Death or be Burnt at the Stake?

Freeze me. I hear that you sort of drift off.

I'm going with fire, hopefully with enough time to eat a bellyful of shot and explosives.

Execute me, huh?

Anything would be better than burning to death.
Rogue- you're cracking me up today.

No thanks to fire, I'm not even down for cremation. No way!

Wow mom! What is up today?!

How about tied down by an ant hill and covered with honey?

So y'all don't know how -60f feels. Burning to death, I would at least be warm for a bit. Also freezing would take a LOT longer...

No way!! Just curious if people thought one was preferred over the other.

Rogue mom I have seen a few of these polls with a variety of options. However, fire seems to be constant. I think it could be because of the pain it causes? A subconscious fear of fire persists.

I'm limiting myself, I think, to 2 questions a day. I don't think my other questions have involved fire. Personally I do not like fire and would think fire would be a sucky way to do. Asking if someone would prefer being crucified or stoned seemed to be too Biblical for today

RM, there is nothing to loose by limiting questions except having to wait a bit. My comments on fire polls extend to multiple users. You are not the only person asking. As for your final question, stoning is a no Brainer.

I don't want to add to the massive questions that are being fired on the wall. It'll probably slow down after a while. I know I'm not the only person asking, but I couldn't remember if my other questions had fire related answers that would have led you to your thought that *I* had a fear of fire

I now see that you thought it was a general fear and not my own.

Stoning for sure and hopefully pay a friend to knock me out pretty early on so I'd not feel the rest

Freezing would be far less painful. You go into hypothermia and then fall asleep. I would make a spectacle of myself if burned. I hate being hot and it really hurts when I get burned accidentally.

Being frozen on a mountain sounds more badass and less painful than being burnt at the stake soo...

Being burnt at the stake is where the term fag or faggot came from. Gays were used to ignite the fires that burnt witches.
I'd take frozen with a lovely view.

That's actually an urban legend. No culture ever burned their gays, and fag/ faggot did not refer to homosexuals until the early 20th century.

You'll have to debate that with

That word and its variants have many additional meanings according to the iOS dictionary.

This is something that me talked about in the military.. One thing I told them is if I'm burning leave me... But the cold is something that would've been long and drawn out... I would need to know the circumstance... I have been through cold weather survival...

A little shivering then blissful hypothermia beats smelling bacon cooking that seems a little off and knowing it's me.

All the Jesus Zombie FB update messages have me thinking all Death Becomes Him/Her today. It's fascinating to me today
