    Default Best scent for a public hanging?

    Dear Basenoters,
    I'm taking my 90 year old granny to a public execution this weekend and wondered which fragrance I should wear?

    i'd say wear 6 sprays of kouros on your groin. the projection is NUTS.

    wait, are you the same guy who asked what fragrance to wear when taking a girl to the strip club?

    Hahaha!! This theme always makes me laugh.

    I would recommend going scentless. You don't want to distract the hangman and have him botch the job!

    No, he's one of the guys that posted a thread (and now a second one, a few months after the fact) mocking the guy that asked what fragrance to wear when taking a girl to the strip club.

    Well, I gotta say that I didn't think that I'd even see a thread like this on Basenotes......

    I'm not sure why anything surprises me anymore......!

    Strip club=OK......Public execution scent??? Well, you asked. Nothing. Why associate anything good with that event?

    In America, you should wear something festive for such an event. It is all part of the show.

    I absolutely agree.

    The forum rules are really astonishing me. Using „explicit” language is less tolerated than making fun of human barbarism.

    Shame on people for not engaging in meaningful discussions of the political and moral quandries of modern society . . . on a perfume forum.

    We are discussing a hypothetical and totally absurd situation here, not an actual event. Now, is a real hanging event barbaric? Yes, I agree. Is the OPs imagnary and totally farcical event barbaric? Not in my opinion. No more than watching someone get shot in a movie western or a cartoon character getting blown up. We should be capable of sifting the real from the imaginary.

    That's the point. What makes humans such a cruel species is the ability to disassociate thoughts and actions from emotion. For me it is not worthwhile celebrating violence; be it mentally/imaginary or real.
