(Disclaimer: I'm not actually going to do this.  It's meant as a joke.)

 

If I go down to the local library and tell the Catholic school kids there is no God, I could be prosecuted by the State for corrupting the youth against the God(s) and sentenced to death.  It is a Christian country here in the United States, they tell me so anyway.  Then, just like Socrates, I could refuse to flee the country (like Snowden!) and instead take hemlock and kill myself, thereby not giving the State the satisfaction of executing me.

 

Yes, if you understand this joke, you understand my warped sense of humor.

I have heard that hemlock will make you big, strong, handsome, and smart...
