"You could initiate a horrifying fury that would terrorize even the Grim Reaper - and you don't even want to fuck with that mack daddy."
— Bludworth, Final Destination
When Beyond Birthday committed his third murder, he attempted an experiment. Namely, to see if it were possible for a human being to die of internal hemorrhaging without rupturing any organs. Specifically, he drugged his victim so they fell unconscious, tied them up, and proceeded to beat their left arm thoroughly, being careful not to break the skin. He was hoping to bring about enough hemorrhaging to cause death from loss of blood, but this attempt ended, sadly, in failure. Blood congested in the arm and it turned purplish red beneath the skin, but the victim did not die. He simply shook, convulsed, and remained alive. He had been convinced the blood loss incurred was enough to kill someone, but apparently he had underestimated the matter. As far as Beyond Birthday was concerned, the actual method of murder rated fairly low on the amusement scale, and it was never more than an interesting experiment. It did not particularly matter to him whether it succeeded or not. Beyond Birthday simply shrugged, and took out a knife...
Know about Bluhm? ...They dragged him into the desert, cut out his tongue, chopped off his manly apparatus and stuffed them where his tongue had been. Then they crucified the poor bugger. Pathologist's opinion is he was still alive when they nailed him up.
The last guy to whack one of Vasquaz's boys had his mouth filled by a Mauser clip and his gums glued up before they set another note to his head.

Of all the methods I employ, this is perhaps the cruelest, causing my victim’s body to shrink on itself, crushing bones and rupturing organs ‘til the pressure inside burst the sac of fleshy skin, spraying its contents for all to see.
He don't deserve no mercy
We ought to shoot him with the guns
But I am not an evil man
So first let's have a little fun
We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
And throw it overboard
Drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip
Death by scratch-and-sniff? What the hell happened to people shooting each other with guns?
