    The Persian "Tub".

    “And the punishment of “sitting in the tub” saw the convicted person placed in a wooden tub with only their head sticking out. The executioner would then paint the victim’s face with milk and honey. Flies would begin to swarm around the victim’s nose and eyelids. The victim was also fed regularly and fairly soon, they would virtually be swimming in their own excrement.

    At which stage maggots and worms would devour their body. One victim apparently survived for 17 days — he decayed alive.”

    The executioner would then paint the victim’s face with milk and honey... The victim was also fed....One victim apparently survived for 17 days
    A waste of resources.

    Honey is a luxury good, and milk as well as 17 days of food could definitely be put to better use.

    And given the level of care required of the executioner, how many men could he manage?
    A person with that detachment from humanity could be put to better use torturing for information, rather than just enforcement of whatever flavour of justice your dictatorship fancies.

    Maybe if the system was automated, and constructed by captive engineers -- which would serve as a warning of what would fall them should they try to escape (there would be one engineer assigned to build one death machine, if it provides an inefficient or quick death when tested on prisoners, then the engineer will be put to the designs of one of the other engineers).
    The engineers should have one month to satisfy, and lost a toe each week they're over eventually progressing to other appendages. For the sake of dexterity and therefore usefulness, their eyes and fingers should not be removed.

    Is it your implication that only an ENTJ could come up with this cruel and unusual punishment?

    That may or may not be the case, but there is a flaw in your thinking that renders the point moot anyway. As ENTJs, we might order the execution, but it would be one of our many underlings or minions getting their hands dirty and doing the dirty work. As such, while we might appreciate the artistry, this particular method is likely to have been someone else's handy work.

    Cheers!

    I guess the Persians were huge on honey and milk when it comes to torture...

    No, of course not :). I just thought that you guys might like it...I had another type in mind when it comes to whoever came up with the punishment...probably an NT...*gaze darts towards suspected type but doesn't mention it in fear of being wrong*
