A word about last words

The Statesman recently published an interesting piece on the last words of those executed in Texas. Some memorable, most not. No one much likes to imagine, or talk about, his own departure, and who really knows whether they will leave this earth with dignity, with fury, or kicking and screaming.

When our time comes, though, it'd be nice to say something others will remember for a while, don't you think?

Here are some rather more memorable final utterings, none of them apologetic, all of them badass. So, without further ado, the badass last words of a serial killer, an Indian chief, a witch, a revolutionary and several more.
