I wouldn't allude to witches being burned at the stake. Your statement of "that's not the only way folks were killed in Salem," is misleading and false, and will only lead to more confusion. Also, what's with the witch costume? Why are you wearing that?? There were no witches in Salem in 1692. The condemned were all innocent, accused by a bunch of young girls who lived in a religiously repressive culture, and were most likely acting out delusions of mass hysteria. The accused and condemned were all hung, except, of course, Giles Corey. And yes, we know Corey was innocent. Do you need to mention that either? I do not understand what the continuing fascination with witches is in Salem, with tourists looking for "witches" everywhere (and the town doesn't help, using the sensationalism of tourism and to make money) when the real trials were a tragedy in a time when people were ignorant and superstitious.
+Bobby Lee All the condemned (Rebecca Nurse, John and Elizabeth Proctor and others) died on Proctor's Hill, not Gallows Hill, as previously thought. They had to mount a tree with a ladder and the ropes were tied to tree branches. The condemned were pushed off the branches with the ropes around their necks. The condemned did not always die from their necks breaking from this method of hanging, but probably strangled to death which is a slow, agonizing, horrible way to die. There were no real witches in Salem, unless one wants to mention Tituba, the West Indies slave woman who started the whole thing with her tales of voodoo to young impressionable girls like Abigail Williams. Williams and the other girls were teenagers living in a repressive religious society, and would let loose steam by taking their clothes off and running nude through the woods. And there was also a place called Merry Mount, which was where people went to let off more steam. There were all kinds of fun they could have in Merry Mount, then go back to Salem Village and put on their pious "holier than thou" faces. There were alleged "witch sabbats" that took place in various places in the New England countryside, but they were probably no more than sexual orgies, with men and women letting off steam by enjoying various sexual pleasures with each other.
I see what you’re saying here, Thomas. I have deep ties to Salem and to the witch trials. Thanks to ancestry.com, my mom and I have actually discovered that Giles Corey was my 10x great grandfather, and Salem founder Roger Conant was my 11x great grandfather through another family line. Unfortunately, I am also related to Ann Putnam and John Hathorne. My mom and I took a trip to Salem a couple of years back, and after seeing all the “witch city” signage, souvenir shops, etc, my mom was a little irritated and upset about the profits being made from such a tragedy. I see that point, but I also wonder if in a roundabout way, all of that attracts people and educates them about the truth (if they know where to look). This was one of the darkest chapters in the history of this land, and we must always remember and educate future generations.
Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is a condition of a male’s penis that prevents it from getting an erection from sexual intercourse. However, many male patients get this condition from many pre existing health problems. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, or the NCCAM, released that ED affects nearly 30 million males in the United States alone. In most patients, certain drugs can single handedly treat the condition. Below, is a list of different antibiotics used to treat ED and what side effects you may get, as well as what other treatments your doctor might prescribe you.
