If you are shot in the head you die instantly....I still don't particularly want to get shot in the head.

I think you missed the point of it, it's not going "ZOMG look @ this r8 painful way 2 die!!!!11!," it's showing how all life on Earth can be wiped out.

And yes, it is old. But I only found it recently, and liked it. Maybe there are other people who might see it and hadn't seen it before. They might be able to enjoy watching it. But no, Veraal has seen it before, so it can't be posted.

And you'll be excommunicated by the pope for aggression against your fellow Christians. He may even call for crusades to be led against you. The elves will bring you nothing but cloth and the humans will seige you. Ghandi will demand iron working and then he'll declare war when your nation refuses. You may be eaten by a grue. Lo-pan will start raising volcanoes around your cities. God will send 7 different kinds of plague against you, and to top it all off, you'll have to withdraw funding to the X-com project and then everyone will die.
