[Inspired by the Moussaoui thread]

So solitary confinement for life just goes to show you that there are punishments far worse than death.

The question is ... what is the worst possible punishment possible (in this world)?

I'm thinking it's the following:

Strap a person to a bed, such that he can't move his arms or legs [this prevents any suicide attempt]. Connect him to an IV supply of food (so that he doesn't have to use his hands to eat, and so he can't refuse to eat). Then inflict the worst kind of pain possible (I'm not gonna write it here directly, but you're free to use your imagination) every day, 24 hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year, for life. The pain should be of a kind that is non-fatal, so this poor person can live for another...say...40 years in constant pain.

I think that's about the worst you can do in this world..Anyone have better ideas?

Have you been reading Les 120 journées de Sodome lately?

Man, I have to rethink this bless't union.

[ps. subjecting the person to watch his children undergo the above is worse, IMO]

It's all hypothetical m'dear. No worries ;)

I don't think so. It may be at first, but physical pain gets to you. Just a fact of life.

Children are your flesh and blood. Hence, it's physical. Ask Mindy.

You've completely left out psychological pain. I imagine the worst punishment possible would include a hefty dose of each.

That's one way of inflicting psychological pain.

faucet dripping 24 hours/ day, cold showers, induce vomit and make him eat it, cage with rats, let him walk out of the prison and then shoot him in the leg or electrocute... let's see... whatelsewhatelse...

hide a key behind his eye socket and force him to dig out his own eye to get the key or else a trap is going to close on him forever. (borrowed).

Girl, read one too many horror novels. :ph34r:

Constant repetitive pain tends to grow duller with time. I suggest that in addition to all the aforementioned punishments, the punishments be started and stopped at random intervals, so the prisoner will not get used to it, and will look forward with dread for the torture to restart at any given moment. That's psychological pain.
