The believed #1 most gruesome method of execution was:

Sawing

In Execution by sawing, the criminal would be hung upside-down and a large saw would be used to cut their body in half, starting with the groin, all the way to the head. Because the person was hanging upside-down, the brain received sufficient blood to keep them alive until the saw finally reached the main blood vessels in the abdomen. In the Asian version of this execution, the victim would stand upright and the sawing would begin at the top of the head.

Some traditions state that the Prophet Isaiah was executed by the saw. It is believed that Saint Paul is making reference to this in his Epistle to the Hebrews 11:37:

They were stoned, they were cut asunder, they were tempted, they were put to death by the sword, they wandered about in sheepskins, in goatskins, being in want, distressed, afflicted.

This method of execution was used in the Middle East, Europe, and parts of Asia. It was also used in the Roman Empire and was considered to be the favorite punishment dished out by Emperor Caligula.

The first government in history to issue paper money, the Song dynasty was the ruling dynasty in China between 960 and 1279. A culturally rich period for the arts, philosophy, and social life, the dynasty also bolstered naval strength and developed revolutionary new military technology—augmented by the use of gunpowder—to repel invaders. Nevertheless, the Song dynasty was conquered in 1279 by the Mongol ruler Kublai Khan.

Yes, yes I did. Thanks for asking.

.....okay, no I didn't. That's interesting though... considering how humans prefer to eat "lesser" animals cooked. Wonder if it's because of the smell, texture, or a significant difference in taste between raw & cooked meat... or something different entirely.

Did you know the Latin phrase “libra pondo” was used in ancient Rome to indicate weight, which is why today the abbreviation for pound is lb ?

Did you know the phrase “under god” in the pledge of allegiance has not always been in the pledge. It was put in during the Eisenhower administration to help distinguish the United States from the “godless” communists in the USSR ?

Yes and I practice it. Grasshopper stir fry and meal worm quesadillas are quite delicious and nutritious! Don't knock it 'til you try it!
