1. Sawing. The criminal would be hung upside-down and a saw would be used to cut their body in half — starting with the groin.
2. Scaphism. An ancient Persian method of execution. A naked person would be placed inside a hollow tree trunk, their head, hands, and feet protruding. Honey would be rubbed on his body to attract insects. They would then be abandoned. Eventual death was probably due to a combination of dehydration, starvation and septic shock from the bites.
3. Snake pit. One of the oldest forms of execution. Convicts were cast into a deep pit with venomous snakes. Several famous leaders have been said to die this way, including Ragnar Lodbrok, a Viking warlord in the 9th century.

Do introverts want new friends?

I am an introvert myself and I know I'd be glad to make some new friends. I always wonder about other introverts - they are quiet and mysterious and I want to know if they are interesting people (like me) and if we would get along. But these people are hardly approachable. They sit with a small group of friends, talking between themselves. It would be very hard to try to talk with any of them like that, especially since I do have a little social phobia. They look pretty closed for new people, and they know each other well, so everything I could say to start a conversation would sound…

Introverts do like to socialize – only in a different manner and less frequently than extroverts.
And there’s a lot of great things with introverts as friends.
In fact, introverts are the leading pioneers of advancements in human civilization. Albert Einstein, Issac Newton, Charles Darwin are a few introverts that come to mind, just to name a few.
A lot of well known names in Hollywood are introverts as well. Julia Roberts, Steven Spielberg, Christian Bale to name a few as well.
And for those interested in sports, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods come to mind…
