THE IRON MAIDEN
(Not to be confused with the band) In this monstrous device, the victim is locked inside and forgotten. Now these procedures may get a bit deceiving, maybe a bit boring. But when you look at the item used to put the victim in, you'll feel more sorry for the chosen person. A LOT more sorry.
Now I told you readers that this post will be about murder devices, but just for the sake of giving you additional information, I've decided to make an exception. Welcome the thumbscrews. Definitely more of a torture than an execution device, it doesn't take a genius to figure out how to work this machine. Observe:
I sincerely apologize if the design wasn't as practical as you expected, but I guarantee you it's still extremely painful. Chances are that if you try this on a person he'll probably say more vulgar things than "SCREW you!"
That should be the end of the medieval torture weapons. I'm sorry if you readers didn't see as much machines as you expected, but I'll gladly find out about more if you want.
