Major Depression IS a person. I served under him for three years, starting when he was just a first lieutenant. Have some respect even if you're one of those clueless little shits who hate the military, because it's people like Major Depression who make it possible for you to kill yourself, you ungrateful dead.

Currently used methods of executions are passe. Lethal injection? It's like using poison and it's older than Socrates. Hanging? Old hat as well. Gassing them is nazi and beheading is too ISIS-like. The electric chair is a Thomas Edison art deco thing that is desperately out of fashion. As for the firing squad, it's way too romantic and should be reserved for cool people like spies and stuff like that. Since we're in the 21st century, let's devise new ways: bombard them with neutron for instance, or shoot them into orbit and have them burned up on re-entry. Or nuke them. What about it? Put them in an underground cell with a low-yield warhead. Or do it in batches: put a thousand condemned on a deserted island and then hit it with a MIRV. Airburst so there's little contamination and we can reuse the island. Be modern, dammit.

You lack imagination and ambition: tell the cloned criminal that if he can catch and execute the original within a certain timeframe, he'll be free to go and start a new life. Of course you're not going to tell him about the build-in time limit that will terminate his metabolism after the timeframe has expired.

Yeah, like we cannot take on more than one problem at a time, right? Face it: homelessness in Sim City IS A PROBLEM. It needs to be addressed NOW. It's not like all those homeless are going away if you ignore them. What are you going to do, force them to emigrate? To where, the Mushroom Kingdom? In case you haven't noticed there's a permanent status of civil war there. Some of these homeless people are veterans with severe psych issues and they're of all ages - from Battlezone tank crewmembers to Call of Duty former SpecOps - they need HELP. So get off your high Skyrim-imported horse and press F12, dammit!

Simplicity does not precede complexity, but follows it.
