The ingenuity and creativity of the human race, when it comes to punishments, torture and generally unpleasant things that we do to other people, is pretty insane. It seems like you can’t randomly open a history book without reading something brutal and being grateful that you don’t live in ancient Rome, Greece or Asia. But while those civilizations were pretty brutal, don’t get me wrong, ancient Persians really mastered the art of punishing the people that pissed them off.
I mean, bonus points for getting your point across and making sure that no one tries to cross you, but some of these ancient Persian punishments might be taking things a little too far.
Just a tad.
