I have to say you have a pretty sick mind far sicker than mine.
These are just cited examples of what other people have done when they want someone else to suffer. You say you want someone who has wronged you to "pay," well, there's some real-world examples of what you can do. What your preferred world would be like, where revenge and suffering motivates the legal system rather than justice and law.
I am just wondering was that supposed to make me feel for the criminal?
I don't expect empathy to be a trait of people I talk to on the internet. even if they actually possess it, everyone likes to be a stony John Wayne badass through a keyboard, and so the expectation is wasted.
No. You said you wanted someone who wronged you to "pay." I simply provided you with a shopping list of how other people with the same desire have achieved that desire. I asked if that would satisfy you, and I'm honestly curious about what your answer would be.
It doesn't because you are using logical fallacies a combination of strawman and slippery slope and when people use logical fallacies I tend to tune them out because their arguments are invalid from the getgo.
Well then you're quite a hypocrite, because you started out with a huge logical fallacy with this line:
"It worries me when people have more concern for criminals than victims. "
Not wishing cruelty and suffering upon a criminal does not by any means indicate a lack of concern for their victims. They are in fact, unrelated issues. Do you think that, for a real-world, this-stuff-happens-here example, that a murderer being raped in prison helps out the victims' family in any way? That a thief getting stabbed in the neck by his cellmate has somehow brought benefit to the person he robbed?
of course not. Your presumption is itself a straw man and wholly invalid.
If you would like to discuss the article and the implications of what they are proposing that would be refreshing because so far you arn't.
I already expressed my opinion on the article itself. That resolved, i saw your post and was frankly rather disgusted.
I hope to hear back as to whether the methods I illuminated would make you feel better, if you were a victim as you described. How much pain and suffering and anguish would it take to quell your want for revenge?

So it is ok to kill someone by cutting them thousands of times then pouring lemon juice on the wounds then cauterizing the wounds while giving them blood transfusions and drugs to keep them awake?
Imagine what Einstein could have done with 1000 years... or Stephen Hawking... or Neil Degrasse Tyson.

Reminds me of the "Slow mo" drug from Dredd

Imagine the possibility for learning? If we could combine this new drug with some form of audio visual learning aid like the virtual reality Oculus Rift device about to become mainstream we could impart just about all the collective knowledge of humanity to a user in a few hours time.
Provided of course our brains retain the knowledge and has the capacity store the information.
