heads will roll

It reads just like somethig in the Onion, but its real Theres a great interview with Muhammad Saad Al-Beshi, the Michael Jordon of Saudi Arabias executioners, in the Arab News today. You have to read it. You have to You wont believe it.

Every once in a while its good to read something like this. It reminds you how fucking lucky you are to be born in the U.S. Sure, we may have a lot of fucking problems, but at least were not idolizing a man that chops off seven fucking heads a day like hes one of the cast members on Friends.

Heres a clip:

His first job came in 1998 in Jeddah. The criminal was tied and blindfolded. With one stroke of the sword I severed his head. It rolled meters away. Of course he was nervous, then, he says, as many people were watching, but now stage fright is a thing of the past

An executioners life, of course, is not all killing. Sometimes it can be amputation of hands and legs. I use a special sharp knife, not a sword, he explains. When I cut off a hand I cut it from the joint. If it is a leg the authorities specify where it is to be taken off, so I follow that.
