  1. My, you’re being prolific today. I’m afraid to ask which ones of these you believed… The pear device? :o)

  2. Actually, yes. I did believe about the torture devices, but not for the Middle Ages. I believed that they were used in the Renaissance, and that’s because the museums told me they were when I was growing up. I also believed the burned bras. It seemed logical, not fringe, to me. But reading about how it was fibbed as a discrediting device, that seemed very logical as well. And sad.
