There was an interesting NPR story a long time ago talking about crucifixions and how people died.
It wasn't really from the nails, obviously - I mean, lockjaw is a slow slow slow way to die. Though I suppose one could get infection.
But no, they discussed how the shoulders would have pulled from their sockets as people's body weight drooped and hung. That death would most likely have come from dehydration more than blood loss.
At least I can get on board with that - so to speak. Ah - 'on board'. I just got my own joke. Boards. I guess. Plural.
My friend, Jeremy, sent me this next no-no. Well, no-no for most people. Not for Jeremy. And not for me. He knows me too too well.
Oh, how I laughed and laughed.
I'm fine being "that guy".
And CB sent me this one.....
and D@vid provided this.
