    My local Y has an enclosed pool, sealed up pretty tight in the winter. Walking in there took the breath out of my lungs. I have no idea how anyone can manage to stay in there much less exercise while breathing that in.

    Just as a general update I still work in the 18th century. These days I'm an apprentice leatherworker. And a dancer in the evenings. Huzza, etc.

    Close! It was a 90s grindcore album cover.
    edit- I mean, New Wave and grindcore are pretty far apart, but the album cover bit was spot on.

    Yeah. The answer for Emperor of Rome is, as always, whoever can command the support of the Legions.

    I haven't seen that one, but they've also got other possible English monarchs and who would be king (or queen, depending) if George Washington had taken over the U.S. as king. One of the likely candidates is a high school athletic director!

    I've been metal detecting a union camp on and off for around a decade. It's close to my office and relatively easy to get to.

    I've pulled out buttons, bullets, and various other CW items, but yesterday I got my first coin minted during the civil war!

    it must have been dropped the year it was minted because its got full details

    What a find! This coin has been on my bucket list since I started the hobby!

    What It Was Like to Witness the Guillotine 9:23

    Reservedly advocated as a humane killing device by Dr. Joseph-Ignace Guillotin during the 18th century, the guillotine executed people en masse during the French Revolution; France discontinued its use after 1977. The mechanism of death evoked fear and altered public sentiment about execution. During that time, many viewed capital punishment as a grand, public spectacle, but death by guillotine was a quicker, less-involved process than hanging or traditional beheading at the blade of an ax.

    French Revolution participants and other crowds who witnessed guillotine executions had mixed reactions to what they saw when the blade fell. Some spectators questioned the so-called painless contraption of death, while others demanded the blood and gore of previous practices. Either way, the guillotine's widespread use became infamous as a historical instrument of allegedly merciful fatality.

    It seems like a more assuredly painless version of the guillotine would be a similar contraption but with a one ton rock cube instead of a blade

  • GvzbgulGvzbgul Ask me about my scrotalist agenda Registered User regular
    Or execution by cannon. Barbaric, yes, but I'm pretty sure I'd be dead quick. Although it might have the same problem as the guillotine if your head survives intact.

  • HobnailHobnail Registered User regular
    Well not if you point the cannon straight into their fuckin face, I like the rock guillotine doesnt need gunpowder or even a gun

  • EncEnc A Fool with Compassion The Land of Flowers (and Dragons)Registered User regular
    All execution styles are, by their nature, barbaric.

    If I've ever given into my dark urges and am on Death Row, I think I'd probably try and get caught in Mississippi, Oklahoma or Utah.

    They're the three states that still use the firing squad, and I think there's a certain je ne sais quoi to going out with the ol' blindfold and cigarette.

    alternatively;

    like The Tyranny of King Washington!

    If you survive your execution they have to let you go. It's the rule.

    and the electricity triggers my dormant X-gene and I overload the power and black out the prison and make good my escape and am on the run and have to join the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

    mine was The Communist Manifesto (I wanted The Red Scare but it was taken :( )

    he was created by an underground Soviet Union to be a counterpart to Statesman. but like all Communists, he turned to evil and petty supercrimes

    Do the Dog-Headed Men Have Souls? // Letter from 9th Century Monk // Primary Source 10:20

    In the 9th century famed Carolingian theologian Ratramnus was written a letter enquiring as to whether the Cynocephaly (the Dog-headed men) had souls. Here we bring you his considered response, taking into account the many different examples of creatures on earth known to him at that time.

    How do we actually know about history? Voices of the Past is a channel dedicated to recreating the original accounts from the people who lived through events, or who lived far closer to them than we do today. We do this word for word, with an accompanying soundtrack of rousing music and images.
