    maybe this is old to some people but it's new to me and I find it interesting. I deleted a few to make it fit in one post but you get the idea. feel free to make some almond and salmon jokes.

    The Last Meals Of Death Row Inmates Documented By Henry Hargreaves

    February 13, 2014 by Sara Barnes

    In the series No Seconds, photographer Henry Hargreaves recreates and records the last meals of Death Row inmates. He captures not only what they ate, but accompanies the photos with what was on the menu and the crimes they committed. Hargreaves is no stranger to the Beautiful/Decay blog, where he was last seen collaborating with food stylist Caitlin Levin. With this particular project, it’s all him, fueled by his towards incredulousness of the US Death Penalty as inspiration. “In New Zealand (where I’m from), and in fact nearly any where else in the developed world, the Death Penalty is just not even in the conversation.” Hargeaves states. “It is a remnant of an earlier era. This little bit of civility, ‘hey we are going to kill you but what would you like to eat?’ just jumped off the page.”
    These last meals are recreated beautifully, and the photographer depicts each with its own style. Some, like the fried chicken dinner of John Wayne Gacey appears greasy and gluttonous. Others, like Victor Feguer’s single olive is a poignantly positioned on a gold-trimmed plate.
    Food is a common thread amongst diverse groups of people, and the eating habits and choices made can tell you a lot about a person. In researching the project, Hargreaves tells Vice, “The thing that kind of struck me with these last meals was how many of them were these big, deep fried meals, which we like to call comfort food. Here were these people in their last moments and all they really want was a little bit of comfort.” This is one of the last messages someone on Death Row could send, and their choices make you contemplate the message they might be trying to send. What was Timothy McVeigh trying to say when he ordered two pints of ice cream? We’ll never know. (Via Huffington Post and Vice)

    A lot of them seem to 'make their peace with god' prior to the execution, so that probably calms them somewhat.

    It'd be interesting to learn if there is a higher percentage of people on Death Row right now who believe they're going to heaven than there is in the population as a whole.

    maybe they have to believe since its all they have left. i can see that if they are christian and have that belief in life after death deal, but not everyone holds that belief and posthumous forgiveness really doesn't do much for you if you believe there is nothing for you after. i wonder how many of them have a jailhouse conversion also?

    I still don't think i could eat anything. jesus believed he had an existence after death and i don't recall him eating much at the last supper. i guess its that knowing that an outrageous amount of pain follows soon after the meal that would kill my appetite.

    I'd order the a huge, spicy, mexican meal. I'd make them clean up a big, smelly mess after I was gone.

    Wonder if they let their victims have a last request.

    That is a stupid tradition other than the fact it may make them wish they would live to have it again.
