Don't worry Mark, I stopped taking this thread and Den Otter seriously when he first jumped in to the Death Penalty debate (see my response to his first post). His views are so absurd, I couldn't respond to anything else he said because my stomach was hurting from laughing too hard. I stopped laughing when I realized he was actually serious, which in the end makes it all the more laughable.
