Katie LutesingerWhat a romantic.

General Anaesthesia: I’m sure she appreciated the gesture :)

Sunny FoxgloveIt really was an act of romance. He was in love with her but his father, who king at the time didn’t approve. He married her anyway and they had children. Furious, the king secretly ordered her killed. She was brutally murdered in front of her children. The prince was stricken by grief and when he became king he had her exhumed and crowned and ordered all the men who had spoke badly about her and plotted her death to kiss the hand of his wife, who should be his rightful queen.

Ray Ceeya (RayCeeYa)I can’t stand watching any TV show with a laugh track anymore. Everybody loves Raymond ruined me. Ray Romano is so not funny and the laugh track just makes it worse. I was literally counting the seconds between LOLs and bored as hell.

The Scout (edited): The strangest thing about this is that while premature burials were extremely rare, the fear of them was not. It was something close to mass hysterics at the time, helped by stories and novels like Edgar Allan Poe’s “Buried Alive” and similar. Doctors at the time sometimes carried a “heart knife”: If they pronounced someone dead, they afterwards stabbed him to the heart to make sure he did not wake up in the grave.

BecSince the nails appear to be close together, wouldn’t this be similar to the bed of nails, more entertainment than torture?

Michael Parsons: A bed of nails is still extremely uncomfortable, the downward pressure is distributed along the length of the entire body, and the person only lays there for a brief period of time. Here, your entire body weight is on your butt and thighs. This would be torture.

Sian EdwardsThese don’t necessarily belong to children. It’s more likely that they belonged to the Liquidators who went in after the area was evacuated. Don’t forget, the Soviet government didn’t even tell the people of Prypiat and the surrounding areas about the severity of the incident, and when they did evacuate, the people were encouraged to believe it was for 3 days. Almost no precautions were taken with the safety of the public until then. The gas masks were likely abandoned by the Liquidators when they were released from duty, they could have been using the school as a base of operations. They left most of the equipment behind, from gas masks to clothing to the fire engines and helicopters because they were too radioactive to take from there.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
