Police Find Crack in Man’s Buttocks

Interrogation-Old School   Leave a comment

Today’s the day for another somewhat gross and disgusting posting in line with my Crime and Punishment post from a few days ago. I’m not trying to be morbid, but exploring the human condition is interesting. In these days of Islamic terrorism where 10% of Muslims (rough estimate) want to kill us, I thought a historical review of torture techniques might be in order.

There was such an uproar made about the United States allowing waterboarding a few years back that the following list of torture techniques might have some of those terrorists praying for waterboarding. I’m a firm believer if somebody’s out kill you it is within your rights to do anything (and I mean anything) to protect yourself and an absolute requirement that you kill them back. If waterboarding helps keep me and mine safe, so be it. This list should let everyone know that things could be a helluva lot worse.

  • Foot Roasting – Victim immobilized on a frame and his bare soles coated with lard or oil and roasted over an open fire.
  • Pitch Capping – Boiling hot tar is poured into a bowl, which is then poured onto the bound victim. This boils the scalp. Then when the cap is ripped off it brings the scalp with it.
  • Denailing – Finger and toenails are ripped off by forcing flaming skewers tipped with sulphur under them.
  • The Rack – The victim is stretched over a rack with ropes ties to the hands and feet. The body is slowly stretched until the cords cut through the flesh of the arms.
  • Water Cure – Using a funnel the victim is forced to drink large quantities of water or nastier liquids. This causes great pain and vomiting when the stomach is distended. It is repeated as often as necessary.
  • Foot Beating – Beating the soles of the feet with a metal bar or stick.

And last but not least for the more liberal of our citizens and preapproved by the Democratic Party, intense tickling till they scream and a serious threat of calling their mother, should keep those terrorists awake nights. Brutal but necessary.

I ALWAYS LIKED THAT INTENSE TICKLING

01/25/2022 Crime and Punishment   3 comments

Being a former police officer, I still maintain interest in all things criminal, crime related, and punishment. I’m also a big fan of almost any book, fiction or nonfiction, about investigations concerning any crime you can think of. That makes today Crime and Punishment Trivia Day and I’ll pass along a few tidbits you may find interesting.

Let’s go back in history a few hundred years to examine methods of punishment for murderers, rapists, and traitors. From what I can see they were a little harsher with punishment than we seem to be these days.

  • First on the list is the wheel. Criminals were lashed to a wagon wheel and their limbs bludgeoned or broken by brute force. Ugly but effective.
  • Next, we have boiling. The criminals were immersed in boiling water, oil, or hot tar and fried to death. Yuck! Soups on.
  • Another favorite was flaying. That involves the removal of a person’s skin which could keep the criminal alive for a day or two until he died from shock. I’d say this is really cruel and really unusual punishment.
  • This is a Chinese favorite called “The Death of a Thousand Cuts”. It is where the criminal was lashed to a frame and over a period of days pieces of their body were severed and removed with a knife. Had to be the Mongolians who started this trend.
  • This crowd-pleaser is called disembowelment. The criminal’s abdomen was opened while alive with a knife, and his organs were individually removed, particularly the bowels. No comment on this disgusting method since I had it done to me but with an anesthesia.
  • Impalement involves driving a pointed stake through the victim’s body from the rectum up through the breast and shoulder. Ouch!!!!!
  • Stoning is when a large group of people were gathered together to throw stones at the criminal. The point here is that no single person is responsible for the death, it’s a group act. What a Sharia loving group.
  • Decapitation is the removal of the victims’ head by knife, sword, ax, or guillotine. One way to keep ahead of the criminals.
  • Burning at the stake involves exposing the criminal to direct flames or heat until death occurs. Barbecues had to start somewhere.
  • Hanging, drawn, and quartering requires criminals to be dragged behind a horse to a platform where they were then hanged, removed just before the moment of death, and then castrated, disemboweled, beheaded, and quartered. That’s like killing the criminal three times over.
  • And last but not least an unusual punishment popular in Southeast Asia from the 11th – 18th centuries. The criminal is tied up, placed under the foot of an elephant, and then crushed. No more circus visits for me, I’ll have nightmares.

I think all of the criminals living in this country should count their blessings and except Life Imprisonment Without Chance of Parole as being mighty generous and merciful. It’s hard to imagine how many of these methods were used often and without hesitation. It’s also hard to imagine how they had any crime rate whatsoever when the criminals knew these kinds of punishments were being handed out. But to quote an expert, “Stupid is as Stupid Does”.

01/13/2022 New Year Trivia   2 comments

Now that the holidays are behind us, it’s time to get rolling with trivia for 2022. I decided to restock my archives with some new and exciting trivia. I’ve been trolling the web and found 6 additional books with highly interesting, weird and strange trivia items. Let’s start with these fifteen to get this year’s started.

  • The German submarine, U-1206, sank in 1945 when it’s toilet was operated improperly.
  • Around 1 million gladiators lost their lives in the arena.
  • Nearly 1,500 different types of insects are eaten around the world.
  • Surgeons were drilling holes in people’s skulls in 6,000 B.C.
  • U.S. magician, Dorothy Dietrich, is the only woman to catch a fired bullet between her teeth.
  • The Bombardier beetle pelts enemies with a boiling, foul smelling liquid.
  • A Siamese cat in Russia weighed an astonishing 50 lbs. – the average weight of a 7-year-old girl.
  • In 1894, a shower of jellyfish fell on the city of Bath in England.
  • The last witch was burned in England in 1712.
  • Every day you shed around 500 million skin scales, 10 million of which carry bacteria.
  • Male vampire moths drill a feeding tube into human skin in order to suck up blood.
  • An earthworm excretes the equivalent of its body weight every day.
  • Three cyclists have died while competing in the Tour De France.
  • Tonsilloliths are small, yellow, foul smelling “stones” that live around the tonsils and cause bad breath.
  • Most people pass around 600 ml of gas a day in 14 farts.

I took it easy on you with these items. A have a host of others which are a bit more disgusting. I’ll send them along at a later date. Here’s an item concerning political correctness at its very best:

Roman Emperor Claudius (10 BC to AD 54) was said to have been so worried about people politely holding in their farts and being poisoned by them that he passed a law legalizing farting at feasts.

GOTTA LOVE THEM ROMANS
