Most of us connect crucifixion with the death of Jesus Christ, yet this sort of torture extends back to roughly the 6th century BCE.
This method of execution is intended to be less painful when compared to other methods, but this isn't always the case.
While it doesn't take forever, the process of drowning can be rather painful. To begin with, a person who is drowning is frequently panicking, which leads to hyperventilation. But instead of air, the victim will breathe in water.
Many of us have experienced mild electric shocks, and they undoubtedly can be painful, but dying by electrocution is a whole different ball game.
