We’re Looking For The Weirdest Torture Device In The World

Posted by on October 16th, 2009


Today’s Weird Things chat is designed to punish, persuade and persecute. Tighten the straps and ratchet it up to 11, we’re looking for the Weirdest Torture Device In The World.

Here are the ground rules:

• Pictures, Pictures, Pictures

• Stories of their use are encouraged.

Email all submissions to JustinRobertYoung@Gmail. I’ll see you kids right here at the front page at THE SPECIAL TIME OF 5 p.m. EST where we will hash out the ultimate champion.

Our baseline was found by the hardest working live chat producer in the GD business and is an old favorite, The Rack. Take it away blockquote…

The rack is commonly considered the most painful form of medieval torture. It was a wooden frame usually above ground with two ropes fixed to the bottom and another two tied to a handle in the top.

The torturer turned the handle causing the ropes to pull the victim’s arms. Eventually, the victim’s bones were dislocated with a loud crack. If the torturer kept turning the handles, some of the limbs were torn apart, usually the arms.

The truth is out there, we find it today at 5 p.m. EST.
