Ok, so I just went and saw Casino Royale. You know, the new Bond movie? Let me tell you it's fantastic. I love it. I'm still in awe of how hardcore and bad-ass Daniel Craig is. (For a full review, go to my other blog: The Random Movie Review.) At any rate I got to thinking about how hard or easy it would be to kill someone. Yeah, I know. It would be crazy hard, and I'd probably react like the Bond girl does, and freak out and all of that.
I've never had and contact with death really before. I've had 2 people close to me die. And one wasn't close at all. My Uncle Matt dies when I was like 7 I think (I don't really remember, I didn't really know the guy, but I think I remember him looking kinda like Fred McMurray). And then my grandmother died about 3 years ago. I was in the house when she died, and I'm trying to remember how I felt about it. I don't think I was freaked out that I was there when she went, but I was relieved that I had gotten to see her before she died. She had cancer and was in serious pain, so it was probably a relief to her, but I don't know how I felt about it all.
In all honesty I don't think I'd have the physical strength to kill someone. I mean Bond is ripped, and there are guns involved. I don't know if I could pull it off physically. Mentally, I think I'd probably over-think the whole thing and screw it up so badly that I'd send myself into some kind of mental breakdown and convince myself that who ever I killed was going to haunt me, or come back to life and eat my brains while I slept. I'd turn into a total Lady McB. or something... (Shakespeare reference for those of you who didn't get that.) So, I really don't think I could do the cold-blooded killer thing.
Question of the Day: Could you?
