It merely looks brutal. Lions, like most predators, kill rather quickly - they can't risk the damage to themselves. Most lions actually die at the hands of their prey than anything else.
The least painful way for a human to die is by lethal injection. Being led into a particular room, surrounded by others, strapped to a table, having them watch as they just snuff out your life. I'd much prefer to be attacked and torn to shreds by lions, and not because of any sort of "I'm tough" macho-man crap. There is something about an arranged and processed death that I find absolutely horrifying.
Yes, sort of. It ties into that, and it's how I feel about human life too. People are born, are sent to school at age X, trained to do a particular job until year X, then are pensioned off to await death. It feels like a conveyor belt of life, and there is a special horror about that for me.
