Fighting

Question by MissDeviance: Would you watch web-casts of live gladiator fighting (the real deal, not for points, to the death).?
See this story first:

If he wins his case, what’s to stop a primative third-world country, like north Pakistan or North Korea, from featuring web casts that include live, human gladiator fights to the death over the web, Pay-Per-View?

With all the other cultural decays occuring, is this next? Will we soon see web-casts of actual fights to the death, perhaps using convicted criminals and using medieval weaponry? (Definite shades of that Schwarteneggar movie written by Steven King.)

And… no be honest… would you watch?

If no, never… what if it was between two convicted child molestors or killers who were proud to cause severe suffering to the children they victimized? Wouldn’t you be the least bit curious to see them get their just rewards?

But… what happens to the winner?

Curious times we live in, no?

I’d watch.

The winner could live to fight another day. I can see it now…..internet thumbs up or thumbs down on the Jumbo-tron to determine if the loser was killed…..Just like in Roman times.

I’d pay to watch it.
