Yeah, I agree. 3-4 star video with 5 star CGI. I love the bit of muscle and bone they included.

Fun fact of the day: the guillotine was originally designed as as a more humane form of capital punishment than hanging.
Sanest Man Alive
Actually, it was meant to take the guesswork and human error out of beheadings, as well as providing an egalitarian approach to them. Prior to its institution, if you were poor and a heinous criminal, you got your head lopped off with an axe. If you were rich and couldn't get away with your crimes anymore, you got beheaded with a big fancy sword; it was just one more way the haves set themselves apart from have-nots (being that swords were traditionally just more expensive to craft, and axes where always seen as either mere tools, or the weaponry of the lowborn and savages, but I digress). Either way, there was always the gruesome chance that the headsman might not be able to do the job in one swing.
ADDITIONAL FUN FACT: when Guillot first drafted up plans for the murder machine that would bear his name into infamy, it sported a crescent blade like an axe. It was actually Louis XVI, himself something of a machinist, who suggested using a beveled blade instead, to better distribute the force of the drop and slice through the neck cleanly.

Tennessee finally got tired of the European drug company boycott of providing drugs for lethal injection. Their solution? Bringing back the electric chair if they can't find the necessary drugs in time for an execution.
At least the head-ripping off machine would probably be more humane than that option.

What Would Caligula Do?

I would rather be smashed with my fellow sinners.
I am actually a stupendously friendly and likeable drunk that gets along wonderfully with strangers.
If this were portal of alcoholism you'd all think memedumpster died.
This reminded me of when I first saw one of the BowFlex robot sorters. I immediately thought how its amazing speed would make being disassembled by one while alive and screaming all the more horrible.
