Our 10 days of torture continue with day number two. Before the invention of our much beloved electric chair, there was a different seat to die on, something much more terrifying.
Let me introduce you to none other than the Chair of Torture. A simple and fitting name for this living room essential. The chair is made of solid metal and boasts hundreds of sharp spikes. There are straps and bars to keep your legs, feet, and torso uncomfortably secured at all times. All you need to do now is give your truthful confession, or just exactly what your torturer wants to hear and perhaps you may be mercifully granted a quick death. If, however, you don’t wisely choose your words, you may be subjected to a long, slow, indescribably barbaric and painful death.
If your torturer is feeling particularly frisky, he may sit on your body, piercing the spikes further into your flesh. He may also tighten the straps or push down on the bars for harsh concentrated pain. If he is feeling more than playful, he may warm your seat for you before you sit down. By warming your seat, I mean that he will use hot coals to heat the metal to a hellish fire temperature. This will make the nails more easily pierce your body and burn you from the inside out.
The chair was considered so horrific and terrifying that the accused would often commit suicide before even coming anywhere near the chair. Death could be dragged out for long periods of time due to the nails stopping the blood from completely flowing out. If you survived the chair, you would not survive the consequential infections that would ensue from contact with the rusty nails.
Now, I’m sure you are asking yourself “where can I buy such an amazing piece of history?” Well, I’ve already looked into it and it seems that your local Pottery Barn is out of stock and unfortunately won’t be getting anymore in.
