Q: How many ice cubes should I put in my Glenlivet 1961?
A: The history of the guillotine goes back well before the French Revolution. The French doctor Joseph Ignace Guillotine (1738-1814) was supposedly the one who invented the guillotine, but a machine similar to the guillotine had already been built in Germany, England, Italy, Scotland, and Persia. The guillotine itself wasn't just the machine that was used for executions. When it was used in Germany, England, and Persia, the guillotine wasn't used in public or for executions. It was used on the farm. It was an axe which was used in slaughtering poultry. So basically, the guillotine was invented or had been used by people who were working on farms. Designed to make execution more humane, the guillotine quickly became a symbol of tyranny during the French Revolution. Victims were placed on a bench, face down, and their necks positioned between the uprights. The actual beheading was very quick, taking less than half a second from blade drop to the victim's head rolling into the waiting basket. However, debate rages over whether the quickness of the execution was humane or not, as many doctors put forward the notion that it could take up to 30 seconds before the victim lost consciousness. That piece of gruesome news would not have worried the crowd, which continually called for aristocratic and royalist blood to be spilt. An estimated 40,000 people have already lain under the tumbrils to die under Madame Guillotine.
