You can do almost everything else on the Internet–why not get a job?

Mashable has compiled a list of five ways to find employment using YouTube and going from the examples given, most of the jobs seem pretty swank (international superstar, anyone?).

(Alternatively, see TIME’s video on the biggest YouTube failures.)

From showcasing your talent to proving your innovation skills, the list gives smart and practical ways to use YouTube for more than just watching Kanye’s latest video. For the full list, head over to Mashable.

These "Christians" are so set on killing people.  I guess they are part of the "pro-life" group that are actually "pro-fetus" but not for before they are born or after.  And they probably want to bomb Crimea also.  Selected "pro-life" positions.

Ridiculous - give him a bottle of Jim Beam and then shoot him in the head.

Why is it we have people over dose every day, going out in pleasureful high via heroin, oxycontin, zanex with alcohol, and other such drugs, but we cannot find drugs for a "humane" way to put these out laws to death? Our county has about 200 a year. They all were doing what they do for the pleasure it gives them. Seems good enough for these criminals to let them do the same.

Seriously?! Good grief! Here's an idea: Buy heroin, inject a lethal amount and tell them to have a nice trip!

Once upon a time we just built a gallows, tossed a rope over the Beam with a noose on one end and the other tied off to the railing. Offered the convicted a last smoke or drink, then dropped the floor out from under them. Granted, this didn't always result in a clean, painless break and the convict may have felt a bit of pain. Maybe comparable to the victim(s) of their crime(s). Going through a series of methods in hope of being more humane, we have arrived at today, in which society cannot bring itself to do to the criminal; what it does to thousands of pre-term babies, every year! If so many people are so concerned about these convicted takers of life, in one manner or the next; I have a large surplus of .308 rounds and can guarantee the convict will feel zero pain after the first nanosecond as the back of the head explodes! Afterwards, I'll pass on the smoke and have a small sifter of brandy, while cleaning my rifle!

I think society has a right and responsibility to execute people it deems, through legal and transparent means, to have forfeited the right to live in society because of anti-social conduct. I also believe society has a responsibility to execute them in a humane manner. The answer is not electric chairs, hanging, firing squads, or lethal injection. The answer is an air-tight chamber in which the person to be executed is placed, them let them execute themselves as they use up all of the oxygen. Or, the air pressure could be reduced so that they black out and them die. This method is just and humane, and society does not have to kill them. They kill themselves by breathing bad air. Also, it is very inexpensive.

They are going about this the wrong way. If they really want to make efficient use of what they have on hand, they should run the expired persons blood through filters to recover the active ingredients of the drug, for use on the next scheduled execution.

A single bullet is not expensive and very humane!

Outsource it to other countries, the drugs will be made available for a fraction of the price and it will remain anonymous. Win - Win situation. Don't let convicts on death row eat into tax payer's money by being kept alive.

No, not really.  The trajectory of a bullet through different mediums and densities is unpredictable.  That gal in Pakistan who was shot in the head at point blank range lived because the bullet didn't even penetrate the skull and zipped around it, instead.

This is why they stopped using firing squads.  The victims often lived for minutes or hours in agony afterward.

The bottom line is there is no humane way to kill someone who doesn't already want to die.  Animals don't care about the suffering of their prey, but humans are supposed to care about that kind of thing - and the constitution mandates that it not be cruel or unusual.

2 problems with your statement.

  • 1. Other countries don't have the death penalty or don't use lethal injection.
  • 2. It costs the taxpayers between two and ten times more to litigate a death penalty case than it does to keep a person in prison from 18 to 80 (Depending on the state and the number of appeals).

Now, it seems to me that if you want to just up and kill someone, say so.  It's certainly not a punishment or a deterrent.  It's simply revenge.  Punishment is taking away any chance of a life outside of prison.  It won't deter people from doing what these people did, but if you're really looking for revenge, make them live a long, unhappy life inside.  Because it will cost the state a hell of a lot more to execute someone - especially someone innocent of the crime, which has happened in the U.S. on several occasions after the lawsuits for wrongful execution are done - than it does to just make them miserable for life.

@DeweySayenoff That is a minor ballistic error. I am quite certain that if firing squads used 50 cal weapons, nobody would survive.

"The victims... ("The victims?" There's your first problem.) 

"...often lived for minutes or hours in agony afterward."

Then SHOOT THEM AGAIN.

@DeweySayenoff @RogueHedonist You are correct, it is time to change the law. Simply run executions like a lottery. Assign each inmate-capital case or not-a random number. Every month generate a number until you get a match, then its show time. Revenge or not, it might make people think twice about committing the most simple of crimes.

@chippy1 @DeweySayenoff@RogueHedonistWow, chippy1. If you look at your local government's civil code and realize you could literally be in trouble with the law for walking down the street (eg, "the most simple of crimes") you might want to rethink that last statement.


Also, DewySayenoff, I think the death penalty IS all about revenge. We can intellectualize it any way we want, but at the end of the day it's an eye for an eye proposition. Not that I mind. If the justice system wasn't so imbalanced, I'd be all for it. "Do we say enough?" (haha)
