Re: Epistle to the Galbations

CW, it is most interesting that you used the word "gibbet!" Certainly Wikipedia has some interesting things to say about it!

I have even considered that the criminal was basically suspended over a pointed stake centered upon the area of the anus? Then as the arms and legs weaken the victim is literally forced to impale his person upon the stake!

But, perhaps I just a little too barbaric?

But, it may also be no more than the remarks of some one or some group who decided to make exposure to the "stocks" even more deadly?
