Question for the masses

I was told today that "Slaying" is a sub-category of "Murder".

My question: What constitutes a slaying?

It's violent. Other than that, I'm not sure.

Hmm... yes, I suppose a poisoning is not physically violent... I guess I just always thought of murder as a violent crime.

Interesting...

Is could possibly mean killed in battle?

Hmm, that's an interesting idea... it was used in reference to describing the crime rate. "Already there havebeen more slayings this year than any other year."

It's definitely not a battle thing since someone who was beaten and shot in the head by her boyfriend is considered a slaying victim.

Usually that was from doing something silly like trying to scout out where the peekazon was for you or I. Poor girl kept teleporting into IGAs.

As to "slaying," it's just another synonym for killing. Slay, kill, murder, etc. are generally interchangeable, but "slay" has the connotation of a violent, up-close-and-personal death.

For Slaying you need either reindeer or horses and snow!

Hehe :P You'll still have to login to see my friends only entries... they won't show on the front page of my site whether you've got cookies enabled or not.

I'm still working on the layout actually. There are a few changes I want to make, but since I now have a working site, they've taken a backseat. Still need to get my links back up, that's next in priority :)
