They say there are no coincidences... On October-19-2008 I gave my first sign of life here.
Pretty people, plenty of fun and a lot of good music I found here. To this day I don't know for what reason I creeping stopped my activities here... but now I miss the atmosphere, the warmth and the fun of this community.
They say there are no coincidences... Today is October-19-2020 and I'm back.

Regards from Austria

I'll begin to translate within the next days.

I began to translate already today.

Here are the first four torture manners in disordered sequence - the relativly easy manners first... giljotiini.gif (Translation fails I please to excuse)

lead press, crown squeezer
Torture or execution. For using this instruments the head was layed into a vise and this was screwed down more and more until – akin the squeezing of grapes – heavy pressure weighed on the crowm of the accused until the crown broke.

to drown
Torture or execution. The tortured was, shackled on hands or within a cage on a rope launched to water (sea, river harbor) again and again so that he couldn't breath less or longer time. This was made by using a crane frame. Every time he was lifted above the water there was the ability to admit something. If he didn't he was launched again.

weights
Torture or execution. The tortured was laid on a table and strapped down. On his chest was placed a plank. Oin this plank was laid heavy weights, those took him the breath. If the tortured didn't admit was put more and more weights on the plank – until the chest broke.

to broil
Torture or execution. The tortured was affixed above a fire place in a kind (eighter erectly fixed by a picket or layed on a frame) that you could ingnite a small fire below his feet. The feet lubed up by grease and the fire ignited. First burned up the skin on the feet until the substance was visibly. The smell of the own burned substance ingressed into the nose of the tortured. The torture could take so long until the feet-bones was visibly.

Most of the time I feel (relativly) young and well, but there are days I realize that I'm actually already a honourable member of "Mature people club".
Today is one of these days.
I celebrated the 21st anniversary of my marriage today. My wife was very happy, that didn't forget the date in this year...
After a such long time too I have to admit: We both did a good choice together... smile.gif

A man from Hannover (Germany) placed 23.000€, the purchase price for a new cabrio (convertible car?), during the test drive exposed on the backseat. Of course the wind was blown over the bills into all directions.

Because of a computer failure an ATM in Lorient (France) coughed up 20€ bills instead of 10€ bills.
That's gets around very rapidly. Within three hours more than 100 persons withdrawn at this cashpoint all in all 10.000€.

A Turkish cow pushed a bust of the state founder Atatürk off their pedestal - and therewith arranged for official investigations and a lot of tizzy in an East-Anatolian village.
