The Guillotine by robin97531 The Guillotine by robin97531
I haven't submitted anything for a while, so I decided to put this old one up. I made it out of popcicle sticks for a french revolution project in tenth grade ^_^;;; Kinda creepy, but still cool ^^

Contrary to popular belief, I'm pretty sure getting killed by a guillotine wasn't that bloody. The speed of the falling blade would pick up heat and, when slicing threw the neck, would close off the blood vessels. Either way, I like this. It's so gory and well made :3

Thanks! However, the average guillotine was about 15 feet tall, that not nearly enough time for friction to heat the blade to cauterizing temperature. Also, only a fraction of the blades surface area touch the sides of the machine, so high heat could not be generated there either. Try dropping a large piece of iron 20 feet, it will not be hot. Until you provide me with a source, then I will assume that blood 5 liters of blood drained/sprayed out of the body when the head was cut. >:}

Well I'm sure they're some blood, just not nearly as much as in the pic

I suppose that depends on how many people were killed >:}

You only kill one at a time, right?

Yes, but I doubt that it would be cleaned each time. If you had a lot of be-headings in a day, I imagine it would get pretty messy.
