    The entertainment industry is responsible for violence.

    Mel Gibson's movie about the Passion has taken in huge amounts of money and made a huge impact on the public consciousness. I knew it was only a matter of time before the violence in the film started inspiring copycat violence in real life.

    When oh when will game makers and movie directors learn that impressionable minds out there need to be shielded from the gore and smut they peddle? THEY ARE RUINING SOCIETY. :rant:

    Wow thats um uh pretty damn stupid. I laughed at the part where it said he realized he couldn't nail his other hand to the cross so he had to call 911, what a moron.

    One more thing, how can you die by nailing your hands to a cross? Was he expecting to bleed to death from the wounds in his hands?

    Lol...called 9-1-1 when he realized he couldn't nail his other hand in...

    And remember, it said he had not seen the movie...

    Edit: Canadia, you die by asphyxiation when crucified correctly...

    Bah, you can't let Mel off the hook that easily. I know his Hollywood depravity is responsible for this horror.

    Quote. Of. The. Year. Sometimes you appreciate the finer points of journalism ^_^

    Oh, and people generally took quite a while to die when they were crucified. If the cross was on the floor, he'd probably die of thirst after a few days.

    The way one would die from nailing their hands to a cross, is from suffocation. After a extended period of time in the crucifiction position your neck muscles become unable to bear the weight of your head and eventually you throat collapses. Not my idea of fun.

    Well there is a lot of blood going through you wrists were you would actually have to place the nail to have it hold your wieght.


    Why the hell would you try to crucify yourself? "I know I am going to kill myself because my computer told me to do it. However shall I do it though? I know I will nail myself to a cross and die the slowest most painful death known to man."

    How can you be effected by video games anyway? *Slays Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal* I mean they are just pretend. *Jumps in stolen car to run over prostitute and then proceeds to gun down cops* Stupid people being effected by the pretend.

    After you slaughtered my village and made me push a giant grain-grinding wheel for twenty years I swore I would get you, but your five-digit post count is what really made me snap and unleash my legions of Canadian zombie tykes.

    If you're going to find an odd way to kill yourself, that really takes the cake.

    Sure there are odder ones as far as method is concerned, but when you think about it, this one has the whole theological element to it. You want to commit suicide by mimicking a guy who's claim to fame is coming back to life.

    "I can't stand to live. I want to kill myself so I can rise from the dead to do it again. I'll one-up Jesus yet!"

    Yeah, and if you fail to come back to life you can blame it on lack of practice.

    Trying to shift the blame onto the entertainment industry, Durf?

    You can't fool me that easily! I know who I'm blaming for this craziness . . .

    I believe, if he were to stand the cross up and nail his hands that way, the wait of his body pulling down, would've some how sufficated him. I remember reading that, I'm pretty sure thats how Jesus died.

    They don't even know when he was alive (although there are many estimates). You really think they know how the guy died...?

    I just thought of something else. According to the Bible if you kill yourself you go to hell right? So why would God tell someone to do something that will make then go to Hell?

    That's not true.

    By the way, If you were really crucified you would die of suffocation, but the way he was doing it wouldn't. obviously your not going to suffocate if your lying down on a cross or standing on the groud nailed to a cross... that is why they nailed your feet to the cross as well, so you would have to push up with your feet and pull with your hands to breathe. Which of course is extremely painful considering that ther are nails through your hands and feet...

    and I fail to see how your blaming this on the movie...
    a joke?
