  1. I’d replace beheading with executions in general, as a large number of countries have either gotten rid of it entirely or still have it for very limited crimes (like killing the monarch or something), as it’s a bit hard to go back on the sentence if it’s later found that the person was not guilty and the moral problems that come with the practice itself.

  2. Watchmojo not being left wing and calling open borders crazy??? Never thought this day would ever come ??
