Suppose you are stuck in a hostile country, as a POW, with no chance of ever escaping. Suppose you were allowed to choose how you were tortured. Would you pick:
Having your fingernails ripped off with pliers.
Having each of your toes broken with a hammer.
Daily paper cuts to the corners of your eyes and mouth, and between your toes and fingers.
Each hair on your body plucked, and then being forced to eat it.
Improper bodily insertion of a pineapple.
