    Things always were bad back then. Go back further and look at the Templars. Totured till they had no option but to admit they worshipped the devil by the pope. All because of his greed.

    Has anyone noticed how many men in red suits with beards you start seeing around this time of year? What's the deal with that?

    I believe that's to celebrate when the Grinch stole presents, food and trees from the Whos.

    I totally called it.

    The urge to rename the thread "RIP Guy Fawkes" is strong.

    I totally called it.

    The worst thing about the Gunpowder plot is that it overshadows the Main plot of 1603.

    To show the extent of his torture - during the time they had people sign their confessions after they obtained them - here is his signature after his torture compared to one from before.



    You can only imagine what he had to endure, and what they must have done to his hands/fingers.

    I think you'll find his explosion was successful, apparently he also looked like Richard Hammond.

    News just, someone subjected to torture to extract confirmation of guilt or other information relating to possible terrorist atrocities may be harmed during such activity.

    In other news Guido Fawkes was also tortured but didn't get any sun as he wasn't in Cuba.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    I heard it was an inside job - Fawkes was just a false flag operation

    The day charity died - NEVER FORGET

    I ended up reading about the rack this morning because of Guy Fawkes. Sounds fucking hideous - apparently it got to the point where all the major joints in your body are dislocated or completely separated. The popping sound is what broke most people apparently. Just thought I'd share that with you all.

    Yuk...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanged_and_quartered

    Dragged to the execution point behind a horse, flaying your skin, then hung to the point just before death, then castrated, disemboweled, and beheaded in that order...

    Then after death chopped into 4 pieces...

    Hard to imagine this really...

    I bet that executioner was real nervous about executing those. Image, with a massive crowd that's come out to watch you do all that nasty stuff to a guy, you accidently just hang him to death.

    Wasn't it less to do with revolution, and more to do with simply killing the Protestant King and replacing him with someone Catholic instead? Also what LB said.
    He intended to destroy parliament whilst it was in session including killing himself.

    That is a suicide bomber.

    He said that under torture so you could argue he just said it.
    I don't see anything wrong with that :)

    Guy Fawkes jumped off the hanging thing to break his neck apparently, avoiding the other stuff.
