VA, start a new thread called Facts. I am not finding your facts fun!

Fun fact: as of late 2014 (I'm unable to find a more up to date number) there were still 10 people left in the United States living in iron lungs, survivors of the last (1960) polio epidemic who never recovered their respiratory function.

Actually, I read a news article about someone being stoned to death somewhere, which led to the wiki article on stoning, which included a section on religious viewpoints, which included what I just mentioned.

I just wonder who the hell thought of that. "Ok so guys - instead of burning him at the stake, let's bury him up to his waist in shit, tie his head against something so he can't move or close his mouth, and pour molten lead down his throat."

"Dude - that is so fucked up I don't even know what to say. Let's do it."

Damn, VA, you've got an interesting reading list. I feel positively dull by comparison.

Dull Fact: Foreclosures have continued to steadily decline since the recession and last month hit an 11-year low. Somewhat interesting, slightly over half of the foreclosures started last month were on loans that originated during the "bubble years" of 2002-2006.

Fun fact: I just learned about an execution method I've never heard of.

In the Talmud (Jewish scripture) four methods of execution are prescribed : stoning, beheading, strangulation, and.....

....pouring molten lead down the throat of the condemned person.

That last one is a new one to me, and seems pretty hardcore. It was a prescribed punishment for incest. Previously the method of "burning" was to simply throw someone onto a fire, or pile flammable materials around a restrained person and set them on fire, but this was considered an innovation because the result was less messy.

The Romans continued this as an execution method for Christians, as well as other offenses. This practice continued from time to time until at least the 17th century, when it became a punishment for drunkeness in some parts of the Middle East, and even into the 19th century as part of the disciplinary code of the Burmese army.

We humans can be pretty creative in how we brutalize one another.

"Admit it, you like that she gives good . . . . . . . . Twitter"

I like everything about her. Her New Yorker pieces are great too, and she's absolutely cute as a button. The way that she laughs at herself is sexy af, I think.
