Designed in ancient Greece, the Brazen bull, also known as the sicilian bull is a huge, solid piece of brass which had been molded into a bull. It consisted of one door that could be opened and latched. After the victim had been locked inside the bull, the executioner would then proceed to ignite a fire under the bull. As the bull heated, it would turn yellow and the victim inside would slowly be roasted to death while screaming in agony. The bull's design allowed for the screams of the victim to be amplified.

CONTINUATION OF TORTURE DEVICES

This technique is called “Scaphism.” The victim was stripped naked then fastened in a tub, or a rowing boat, then was forced to eat tons of milk and honey. They would also have the milk and honey rubbed all over his or her face. They would then get diarrhea from the food. In the tub, they would then be swimming in their own filth. After a few days, maggots and worms would devour their body as they decayed alive. After a few days, maggots and worms would devour their body as they decayed alive. Along with this, the milk and honey on their faces would attract flies and other insects which would slowly eat the victim alive.

1. Drinking Water

This is the easiest way by far. When the body is well hydrated, there is a lesser chance of water retention which results in the swelling or puffiness of the under eye area. Water also helps flush toxins out of the body. To stay hydrated, drink at least 8-10 glasses per day. In addition you should reduce your salt intake and avoid consuming caffeinated and carbonated beverages because they can be dehydrating.

2.. Chilled Cucumbers

Chilled cucumbers are a good remedy for puffy eyes because the enzymes and astringent properties in cucumbers help reduce inflammation and help tighten the skin. It also helps get rid of wrinkles and dark under eyes circle.

Cut a cucumber into thick slices. Place them in the refrigerator to chill for 10 minutes, then place the chilled slices on your eyelids for 10 minutes or until they they become warm. Repeat this process 3 times a day.


3. Salt and Warm Water

Mix 1/2 teaspoon salt into 1 quart warm water. Dip cotton balls or facial pads into a solution, then lie down and apply pads to eyelids. Rest in this position for at least 10 minutes whie keeping the pads in place. Finally rinse your eyes.

Hello,

This story time will be a sad one for me. In case you missed the title, this is about the time I killed my puppy. 

I was about seven year old when this happened and I my female dog, Toto, gave birth to 12 puppies no more than a month before tragedy struck. We hadn't name all the puppies since my mom was giving some away to friends who wanted... this one was one of the unnamed.

Our yard had a its own personal little hill that we loved to play on. We use to take cardboard and slide down the hill with it. But on that fateful day, my brother, sister and I were playing cricket. My brother was batting, my sis was the side catcher (can't remember the real name at this moment) and I was the bowler. My brother was positioned at the top of the hill, my sis was to my right (my brother's left) and I was at the bottom of the hill, close to the fence. The game was going quite well until the puppy decided to come lay down in a hole that was around the middle of the hill. Now I had realized that on earlier instances of bowling (sending the ball), it would bounce in the hole before it got to my brother. I told my brother we should stop playing or at least get my sister to remove the puppy. I cannot remember if she did and it came back or if she didn't, but anyway, when I threw the ball after my brother who insisted I do it, it won't hit the pup. Can you guess what happened?   The ball bounced in the same hole as the puppy, as it usually did and hip the puppy on its head. The puppy let out a large yelp and me immediately dropped the equipment to attend to puppy. 

My mother who was inside rushed to the door and saw the puppy in my brothers hands shaking uncontrollably with a huge swelling on it's head where the ball hit. My mother was panicking and  poured a cup of water on the puppy who was already shutting its eyes. Nothing we did could help the puppy. It took its last breath in my brother's hands. My brother placed the recently deceased puppy on the step. Luckily, my father was just about to come from work so the puppy could be buried. We watched the lifeless body until my dad got home. We told him the story, he put his bag inside the house, took the shovel and chose a slot at the back of the house that wasn't dug up for a pet that died on the earlier days.Everyone said their good byes and we each took some dirt from the patch that was suppose to bury in and dropped it into his grave. I felt like this whole thing was my fault and cried constantly. I would sit in the front door and watch the puppy's grave site as water swelled my eyes. 

As months went on, I felt better and I cried less. How ever I could never forget the fact that a puppy died because of me. My seven year old self felt like a murderer. But as time passed I realized that it was an accident. And though it could have been prevented, it was still and accident and I am to be blamed for this death well partially. I should have listened to the little voice at the back of my head saying don't do it.

Anyways guys that is the story on how I  killed a puppy. It still hurts me to think about it, but I'm okay now.

Bye.
