Does this call for a thread on medieval torture?

Oh wait, we may have one.

It's excruciating. When my mom was a toddler she fell into a barrel the neighbors were using to burn things.

She spent almost 3 years in the hospital getting skin grafts and recovering. That was almost 70 years ago too, it was even more horrific then, medicine has come a long way since. She remembered everything about it including the pain. She had horrible scars all over her body.

Fire is most definitely one of the worst ways to go.

My experience was with my young brother and it took years for him to recover as well. He was three years old was trying to get warm next to an open fireplace and his flannel housecoat caught fire. Luckily for him, the pain was so immense his mind buried it. We don't have the luxury of forgetting what he went through. He see's the scars every time he looks in the mirror, but I'm grateful he is not forced to relive the excruciating pain. 45 years later and it's still traumatic talking about what we witnessed and his pain. It is etched in the mind forever. I can't talk about this anymore right now. :(

(04-15-2018, 02:16 PM)SR-25 Wrote: A nationally known advocate for gay rights and the environment died Saturday in a fiery Prospect Park suicide, with his self-immolation meant as a wake-up call to save the planet.

The charred remains of David Buckel, 60, were discovered shortly after sunrise when firefighters responded to a 6:40 a.m. blaze in the southwest corner of the sprawling Brooklyn park.

“I am David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide,” read a hand-written suicide note left near the blackened circle of burned grass. “I apologize to you for the mess.”

A second, longer note — left with the first inside an envelope marked “For the police” — said Buckel doused himself in “fossil fuel” before starting the fatal fire as a metaphor for the destruction of the planet.
