- Stop action film showing the marvellous diversity of the insect form.
- I've been on before [cruel and unusual - punishment] about the shameful medicalisation of the death penalty to make it humane. I've witnessed the gas-chamber option with mice and carbon-dioxide which is definitely not humane and practiced cervical dislocation myself which at least is quick[er]. I more or less equated asphyxiation with carbon-dioxide and ditto with argon in that first link. This essay into new methods of humane judicial killing points out my error: we have physiological responses to excess carbon-dioxide but haven't bothered evolved a way of dealing with absence of oxygen. BBC is suggesting that asphyxiation by nitrogen, or argon if you can get it, is painless and quick enough.
