Medieval criminals were always guilty.
Sounds like our politicians… if they aren’t caught, impeached, or convicted, they must be innocent.
when in a crisis, always go with the guy with the hot hands
at which point their offspring are born geriatric
The picture of the medieval criminal kinda looks like Marty Feldman in “Young Frankenstien”.\\//_
Is Lincoln Cathedral still standing? It would be 700 years old now.
Caught “red” handed & ended up “burnt” handed!
Actually, some of those old “innocent/guilty” tests worked.Like the one about licking a red hot fire poker. If you were guilty, your tongue was probably dry, and you’d get burned. if innocent, your tongue would be normally wet, and not a problem (well, not much).Ditto the african test of dipping your hand in boiling oil. I suspect this is similar to that one.Most of the time though, most criminals confessed to the crime before having to even go through the test.There are some things your body just can’t control, like dilating the pupils. That’s where the “wet/dry tongue” comes in.So it sound barbaric, but in general, they actually worked pretty well.
How long do they become feritlized if the male is still alive?
