From Encyclopedia Dramatica
A sharp pole is pushed, bottom upwards, through the victim’s anus Favorite method of Vlad the Impaler (more commonly known as Dracula) of 15th century Romania. Victims were impaled by forcing them to sit on a sharp and thick pole. The pole was then raised upright through the anus and the victim was left to slide further down the pole by his or her own weight. It could take the victim three days to die. It is said that Vlad enjoyed having a meal while watching impalements, that sick fuck.
The Judas Cradle was perhaps a little less sadistic than impalement but still gruesome. The victim’s anus or vagoo would be placed over the point of the pyramid-shaped cradle, then lowered on it by ropes. The intended effect was to stretch the orifice over a long period of time, or to slowly impale.
Sometimes weights were added to the legs to increase the pain and hasten death. This torture could last anywhere from a few hours to complete days. The device was rarely washed, so the victim could also be plagued with a painful infection and
AIDS not yet invented by the government.
Saws were was common torture devices because they were readily found in most houses. It was also a cheap way to torture and kill a victim accused of witchery, adultery, murder, blasphemy or even theft.
The victim was tied upside down, allowing blood to be diverted to the brain. This ensured that the victim maintained consciousness for as long as possible, it also slowed the loss of blood. The torture could last several hours.
While some victims were cut completely in half as a symbolic gesture, most were only cut up to their abdomen to prolong the time it took to die.

Fact of the day
Torture, like AIDS, comes in two varieties, Bad Torture and Good Torture.
- Bad Torture, which is carried out against non-U.S. or non-white citizens, is shown in films such as Rendition, Talking Liberties, and Ghosts of Abu Ghraid.
- Good Torture, which is mainly carried out against evil teens who have had sex, is seen in film like Wolf Creek, the Saw Trilogy and the Hostel films.
Teens like to see themselves tortured on film for the lulz and because it punishes them for having governments which use torture, and thereby makes them feel as if they've paid for their sins by proxy in some obscure way. Probably. It's like having a world ruled by S and M nuns.
