Sure but if you let them do that, I can't have my Mr Sparkytm 1/8 scale electric chair.

OMG! I just had the sickest, most perverted idea I think I've ever had: A YouTube channel where you use a tiny electric chair to execute mice and rats.

Socialism is as American as apple pie. Yes, really

Quote
When socialism was at its peak in the US, socialists held 1,200 offices in 340 cities, with two congressmen, dozens of state legislators and more than 130 mayors

It is often claimed that the United States differs from Europe in that it lacks a socialist tradition. The title question of Werner Sombart’s 1906 book Why Is There No Socialism in the United States? was answered nearly a century later by Seymour Martin Lipset and Gary Wolfe Marks’ It Didn’t Happen Here: Why Socialism Failed in the United States.

It is common to say that socialism “failed” here; this is true insofar as socialists never became a substantial force in American politics. But it overlooks the fact that we did, for a short time, have a socialist movement that positively thrived.

A century ago, when socialism was at its peak in this country, the Socialist party had 1,200 offices in 340 cities. There were two Socialist members of Congress, dozens of Socialist state legislators, and more than 130 Socialist mayors in over half of the US states. (The University of Washington has maps showing just how impressive socialism’s spread across the country was.) Socialist party successes were especially concentrated in the midwest, which makes Senator Tammy Duckworth’s comment that you can’t “go too far to the left and still win the midwest” somewhat ironic.

They actually had to ban similar videos from pornhub!
The mice were being crushed not electrocuted though so maybe you have found your niche!
Just make sure you are ethical and only use mice that murdered other mice

Oh, I won't be executing any mice. It was just a (sick, perverted) idea that Ah.hell's post inserted into my brain.

Once, while the farmer I was working for was sharpening the blades of his corn chopper I suddenly got the idea that one of those blades could be used to make a DIY guillotine and I couldn't stop laughing. The farmer thought I was totally sicko.

(The corn chopper chops up the standing, green corn stalks for silage. Its blades are wide and very heavy.)

There are a lot of everyday machines like that, that could kill or seriously injure someone. Generally, my approach is to not. I prefer machines that can't kill unless they're malfunctioning.

Haha I do my best to design such that even malfunctioning machines can't kill (unless they are REALLY malfunctioning).

I cannot imagine how you could build a 100% safe corn chopper. It has to be able to cut and chop an entire field of corn in a reasonable length of time. But my joke was that a blade off the chopper would be perfect for a DIY guillotine.

People lose limbs to farm machinery on a regular basis. It's inherently dangerous, and generally (at least back in my day) was not designed with as much safety as would have been possible. The assumption was, you know it's dangerous, and you don't do stupid things like stick your hand in to remove a clog. And then people do.

Reminds of a totally true story from my home town.  The local, IDK, guy that owned more than one of the businesses ran over himself with a tractor.  Some how managed to engage the clutch while he was working on it and it rolled over him then stopped when it hit the wall.  Anyrate, the point is, you can't make anything so safe that no one can figure out a way to make it unsafe.

Yes, and when you start your channel, I think you should have competitions where mice drive those little cars for treats.  You could start with a whole group of mice, and each week, the worst driving mouse gets electrocuted until the best driver is set free in the season finale.  But of course like someone else suggested, you could only use criminal mice in such a show or people might disapprove.

How about using mice rescued from cats? The mouse was going to die anyway. Without the show, they'd never have been rescued, so this gives one of them a chance to survive. (Though just between you and me, I'd let the cat have that one, off-camera, where nobody can see, because if you never let the cat have any of the mice he catches, he may stop catching them entirely. And anyway, mice are filthy disgusting animals that shit all over your house and chew holes in things.

But as noted, I won't be making this show. I won't even watch it if someone else makes it. So you don't have to worry about me accusing you of stealing my idea.

ETA: In fact, if you claim it was my idea I'll deny it!
