Also can those who reincarnate serve consecutive life sentences?

Hahahaha, of course not.
I will continue to persist long after the civilisation, nay, the race that incarcerated me has crumbled into dust.

@ragingloli You are in prison?

@ragingloli is a prisoner of his own mind.

To answer the question, yes. That’s one way of describing hell.

Yes, I’m stuck on this filthy mudball with a halfwit suicidal species pretending to be in charge. lol

I’m not sure you’re quite understanding the concept of reincarnation. You don’t reincarnate as the same person, so no, you wouldn’t serve prison sentences across multiple incarnations.

@Darth_Algar Then what is it to reincarnate into the same person.

@talljasperman

That’s the thing – you don’t reincarnate into the same person. Even assuming, for the sake of argument, that reincarnation is real (not really something I put any stock in). Even if you do reincarnate you’re someone completely different.

If there was immortality, I can think of some choice individuals who should serve life imprisonment for eternity. The short list:

Adolf Hitler
Pol Pot
Saddam Hussein
Joseph Stalin
Charles Manson
Osama Bin Laden
George Bush

@Darth_Algar Then if I’m not reincarnation than what am I doing… I repeat part of my life and sometimes I get to change some minor thing or what nought. No I can’t steal the lotto numbers.

Having delusions perhaps.

This question so much reminds me of Clock Tower 3 (every single boss you encounter is sentenced to life imprisonment and you’re the judge).

Are you asking if its physically possible or morally justifiable?

@Mimishu1995 Haha, I own that game. Finished it, the last guy looks like the Quaker Oatmeal guy.
I thought it was funny how every boss has a number of years they’re supposed to be jailed for, one of the last guys, said something like 1400 years lol.

And lmao at the guy who sprays acid on people with a shower head. I so wanted to be scared by this game, but it was totally ridiculous. XD

@NanoNano
It is neither possible, nor morally justifiable. Infinite punishment for finite crimes.

herculies's avatar

Murder is a crime that is pretty infinite… for the killee.

@Symbeline At last there’s someone who understand what I’m getting at :)

I’m not afraid of the acid guy, but the scream of the mother and the son when they got killed by him was quite disturbing in my opinion.

Aside from that, I find the game not so scary. And the story is pretty random and ridiculous in the end I still don’t really know what Alyssa’s grandpa’s purpose is. And there’s a question that bugs me: if Alyssa can fight all those bosses back, why doesn’t she do it right when she first meet them, instead of just running around like a scared useless little chick for so long before turning into a supergirl all of a sudden?

Wouldn’t know man, this game is notorious for just not making any sense…and when you do beat it, what are Rooder Points?? They don’t seem to serve any purpose.
But yes, I suppose it has its moments…that first hammer guy, just bashing away that little girl with the hammer…erp.
