    Seppuku involved self disembowelment with a tanto and then the beheading with a katana was performed by a trusted friend

    Not the "worst punishment", I think that title goes to scaphism. But how it was used was certainly one of the worst when revolutionaries basically went on a killing spree with it. They would pull a portable guillotine around and drag people out of their houses for immediate execution with no trial if they were even slightly suspected of not supporting the revolution.

    It also existed in a Minecraft server

    I'd say its the least worst punishment, you die quickly and painlessly, instead of slowly being tortured and feeling alot of pain.

    Doc Guillotinn's name is actually pronounced: gee-o-ten, with the n not sounding because of the use of the BACK of the tongue, rather than the English front. But the Romans had long ago used a far more wonderful long torturous death machine, so celebrated by arouns 2 billion or more torture-lovers worldwide: THe cross, usually a T shape, caused a slow three-day death - no 3 hour BS!. the arms tied back with body weight sagging made breathing harder and harder, until after 3 to 4 DAYS, exhaustion of diaphragm and intercostals helped increase suffering and slow choking as one eventually dies. Of course, Romans liked it so much that they would crucify as many as 2400 in a single day - although most people remember only one poor jewish carpenter who became too popular causing jealousy of the president - ooops, i mean the high-status people in some small rather grubby corner of the empire.. So, you now see THIS machine celebrated by a HUGE death cult, who puts it on top of buildings, hills, and in their rooms, so that they can derogate the very worth of life itself. You are here. Now.

    how is this a "worst punishment in the history of mankind". It is much less painful than current execution methods in the U.S.

    Seppuku's defining characteristic was plunging the tanto knife into the gut and slicing the abdomen. In the absence of a kaishakunin, the samurai would then remove the blade, and stab himself in the throat, or fall from a standing position with the blade positioned against his heart. With his selected kaishakunin standing by, he would open his kimono robe, take up his tanto knife which the samurai held by the blade with a portion of cloth wrapped around so that it would not cut his hand and cause him to lose his grip and plunge it into his abdomen, making a left to right cut. Prior to this, he would probably consume an important ceremonial drink of sake. He would also give his attendant a cup meant for sake. The kaishakunin would then perform kaishaku, a cut in which the warrior was partially decapitated in which way a slight band of flesh is left attaching the head to the body, so that it can be hung in front as if embraced.

    I thought seppuku was suicide by disembowelment and they had someone there to decapitate you if faltered or got scared so you would still have a somewhat honorable death.

    So my only question about the 4 second thing. Does it account for human heads being larger and holding more mass of blood filled oxygen in there or does that not matter?

    This was the equivalent of getting shot in the head quick and painless back in the day, if a little brutal.

    Charlotte Corday wasn't charged for killing her husband, she was the assassin of Jean Paul Marat, who was a major figure of the revolution.

    Charlotte Corday stabbed Jean Paul Marat while he was bathing. Marat was one of those people who plotted the French Revolution and terrorized France after overthrowing monarchy. He was one of those "power trippers" at that time along with Maximillien Robespierre and George Danton. He is not Charlotte Corday's husband by the way. Charlotte was appalled by his sadistic and power tripping disposition when he was sending many innocent people to be guillotined simply because he was suspicious with them and they oppose to their oppressions after overthrowing monarchy/aristocracy. They even insinuated the French to turn to paganism or atheism since most of the clergy were siding with the aristocrats in oppressing the common people, particularly the peasants.
