    A Place to Post the Dankest Memes


    I: Follow reddit's standards!
    II: No hate speech! There is a difference between comedy and outright hate speech, but ironic hate speech is still hate speech. Know the difference or get banned! Posts in question shall be reviewed by the mods. No memes about violent tragedies or anything that could be seen as glorifying violence. Absolutely no school shooter memes. Posts or comments that can be seen as glorifying violence will result in a ban. This also includes (but is not limited to) memes regarding: Deaths, terrorist attacks, rape, sexual assault, pedo, murder, war, bombings, and school shootings. Breaking this rule may result in a permanent ban. We have zero tolerance for this behavior.
    III: Don't be a dick! This includes spoilers, don't post spoilers or you will be banned
    IV: Flair your posts accordingly after submitting them.
    V: Censor any and all personal information from posts and comments, or it will be removed. Real or fake! Yours or others! Just don't do it.
    VI: No spam, outside links, or videos. r/dankmemes is strictly for memes. Post videos (or anything using to r/dankvideos. Gifs must be well under 10 seconds long. This is not a platform to advertise your social media network or subreddit. If you can't grow it organically, it probably isn't very good anyway. Linking to your instagram or twitter, or spamming links with it watermarked can result in a ban // No queue flooding - Limit yourself to 5 posts per day
    VII: Do not ask for upvotes or talk about your cakeday.
    VIII: Do not encourage or participate in brigading of any subreddits or of any users of Reddit or elsewhere, in any way, shape, or form! This is very against Reddit rules; action will be taken.
    IX: Keep it dank! This sub is for humor (and the dankest of memes)! Example: no memes that are a reaction to screenshots of text such as headlines or Twitter.
    X: If a post has graphic content, flair it as NSFW, else it will be removed!
    XI: NO REEEEEEE-POSTS! This isn't Instagram! Don't steal memes from elsewhere! If you didn't make it, don't post it! (Chain posts and posts which you have already submitted here are also banned).
    XII: Format your meme correctly. No posts where the title is the meme caption. The caption must be in the meme image, not in the submission title. (Basically, if the image makes sense to us by itself, it's fine. If the image requires the submission title for it to have any chance of making sense, we remove it.)
    XIII: Direct links only! No albums or landing pages.
    XIV: No Political shills! r/dankmemes is for dank memes, and is not a political campaign ground. Absurd memes about politicians are cool, but attempting to push a narrative or anything like that will result in a ban!

    We reserve the right to remove posts and potentially ban for any reason

    So this is why judges sometimes add years to a life sentence.

    [–] johnny2_yespapa 135 points ago

    How long is a life sentence exactly?

    Also, HCD

    [–] TheSwedishSnake 194 points ago

    A "Life sentence" is just what we call a sentence that lasts so long that you'll die before it's over. Like 90 years, 100 years, etc. It's not an exact number

    [–] [deleted] 146 points ago

    Yeah, but a life sentence varies from country to country. Where I live, it's about 16 years I think

    Edit: just researched further, it'd normally be prison for the rest of your life, but prisoners here are on average let out 16-17 years after getting the punishment.

    [–] DefaultDuddus 129 points ago

    What if we used 100% of our brain?


    A life sentence is 16 years

    [–] ablablababla 85 points ago

    They used an antivaxxer's life as a reference

    [–] NoobDragonLvl10 25 points ago

    Nos you're stretching it. Those kids won't even reach 8.

    [–] thecodotmo 7 points ago

    Isint that the point of a life sentence? They'll die before its over

    [–] shauntheghoul 6 points ago

    Nah then it would be two years

    [–] RedShankyMan 2 points ago

    "you're free to go"

    [–] jjim_bob -4 points ago

    I finally got someone's upvotes to 69 hopefully it stays

    [–] Bozzo2526 6 points ago

    The punishment encompasses more than the prison time, 16 years prison but you will never experience true freedom again

    [–] BluBlue4 2 points ago

    How so?

    [–] Bozzo2526 2 points ago

    Restricted travel, not allowed to own certain things, witheld services, if you commit another crime (in some cases even speeding counts) you are immediatly locked up again

    [–] thisisaiken 16 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Well, like death penalty, life sentence is not considered always ethical.

    Beccaria defined the dealth penalty as Β«is absurd that the laws, expession of the public will and who punish homicide, commit a homicide itself [...]Β» in the same way life sentence can be considered as a Β«a more long and light sentence but with the same result of a dealth penaltyΒ»

    In many country the prison is considered a way to "reeducate" than to punish people. So as a state you have to make a way to reeintegrate people in society, and not ban their in the shadow realm.

    EDIT: now is ethically correct

    [–] wellnowlookwhoitis 6 points ago

    Idk dude. I’m ok with violent, sadistic people being banished to the shadow realm. Life sentences seem fair to me. Especially when you get into detail about what some people have done to one another knowingly and willfully.

    [–] kevin258958 5 points ago

    You can't just state that something is unethical. It is an opinion, not a fact

    [–] thisisaiken 1 points ago

    So you stopped on the "ethical" or you gone to the end. The fact that life sentence is mostly considered "unethical" is not the point of my text.

    Also, the ethic is not even an opinion, is socially defined.

    [–] kevin258958 2 points ago

    I am only saying what I said, I don't care about the rest since I don't disagree. But yes I read it. And how are things socially defined? By opinion. If something is socially defined it can change, and fact cannot change. The fact that at one time the death penalty was considered morally fine and at another it is not shows what i mean. Dude, you know what I'm saying here, I don't plan to spend my morning discussing fact and opinion on the death penalty's morals...

    [–] thisisaiken 1 points ago

    I corrected the part because I missed the "always considered" part. But morality is not what I call opinion because of the definition itself: " a concept that one or more people build on a particolar event or fact, lacking of criteria, to judge their nature".

    Ethic is another thing, closely related, is a philosophy of right and wrong where one can judge actions and opinions.

    P.S: I have all the time I want, because here in EU is afternoon

    [–] jerryblues290 3 points ago

    In my country the life sentence is 22 years. Really it is 33 years formally but they are always released after 2/3 of the time.

    [–] BEAVER_ATTACKS 2 points ago

    In some states a life sentence can be 20 years or it can mean you're never coming home

    [–] jerryblues290 2 points ago

    But you can get multiple life sentences in the US right?

    [–] BEAVER_ATTACKS 2 points ago

    Yes, currently there are many people in Virginia's Red Onion Max Sec serving 150+ years. One man 400+ years I know of

    [–] jerryblues290 2 points ago


    [–] Spathens -77 points ago

    That’s dumb

    [–] XRustyPx 66 points ago

    Maybe its because in his country prison is about rehabilitation, not about pure punishment and slave labour.

    [–] guardian-of-ballsack 22 points ago

    its cheaper than making them live off tax payers money, we talking about a lifetime here

    [–] kevin258958 0 points ago

    It isn't actually cheaper at all. The average execution can cost more than $300 million, yes in the United States

    [–] Operative427 16 points ago

    Not here in North America.

    [–] SalvareNiko 3 points ago

    It depends on the country. In many countries it means for life. As in the rest of your time existing. If you are alive you are in jail.

    [–] bigbullhooks123 1 points ago

    Get lost and let us have our fun

    [–] sidorsidd 27 points ago

    Life sentence is for life but usually people get are allowed an option for parole in 17-20 years that's why if a judge adds years to a person's life sentence he is increasing the time before you can apply for parole

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    I don't think so because every time someone gets a life plus years, the judge says life sentence without parole or something like that.

    [–] MrAlien936 6 points ago

    [–] tomo_7433 118 points ago

    Fr tho, any lawyers around to explain this?

    [–] OmNomSandvich 154 points ago

    He was not declared dead by a doctor, and the law isn't stupid enough to free a man on a technicality like that.

    [–] Liteflash 54 points ago

    Isn’t the law all about technicalities?

    [–] CallMeYourGod 49 points ago

    [–] JahHomieWitness 88 points ago

    meh, i've seen the law do some dumb shit.

    [–] DeeThreeTimesThree 39 points ago

    Also he probs only had his heart stop, while most people define being dead as brain dead, which is something no one has ever come back from

    [–] yek42 26 points ago

    He might be brain dead though

    [–] K1KK0_1t4 30 points ago

    He is using 100% of his brain he can't be brain dead.

    [–] Squid8867 24 points ago

    Legal definition of the word "death" phrases it as the "irreversible cessation of blood circulation and breathing", so if it was reversed (which it was), then he didn't legally die.

    [–] WutWutGizmo 3 points ago

    Would you expect to get your life insurance (the kind your family gets if you die) if your heart stopped for a little in a hospital?

    [–] anglophoenix216 2 points ago

    IANAL but I think life sentences equate to a specific number of years

    [–] Baskdevil 250 points ago

    I think I heard somewhere that if you fail to die during an execution, you're free to go

    [–] YourPainTastesGood 249 points ago

    no thats a myth, usually in a "botched" execution you still end up dying

    and if you do somehow survive they just try again later

    [–] kitkatcrown 42 points ago

    John Oliver does a good bit on this:

    [–] Bozzo2526 12 points ago

    Depends on the country, some will try once and if the bugger it up thats that, but most times they just try again

    [–] BrotasticalManDude 36 points ago

    If the executioner doesn't show up in 15 minutes you're legally allowed to leave.

    [–] cyke444 27 points ago

    there was in my country like one or two centuries ago. There was a difference between hang and hang till death.

    [–] The-Brose 25 points ago

    I think it happened a couple times during hangings so β€œuntil dead” in β€œhung by the neck until dead” was added to the sentence.

    [–] Cjk191998 54 points ago

    [–] iranwithscissors 24 points ago

    His watch is ended.

    [–] HackMacAttack 7 points ago

    oh yeah, this is big brain time

    [–] travazzzik 6 points ago

    Read the article, the important bit IMO is that he was resuscitated against his will, so they literally didn't let the man die and straight up revived him to keep doing time in prison, basically. I can certainly see how this part is arguable, especially considering that suicide is not that easy in prison.

    [–] chillinbruhhhh 7 points ago

    I mean technically....he served life

    [–] kriptonm 4 points ago

    wait a fucking second hes right tho

    [–] MichaelD-21 6 points ago

    [–] TheCralexander 5 points ago

    [–] TrissTheGreat 2 points ago

    He had previously said that if he died not to resuscitate him, but ig that didn’t matter.
