Response to herding cats (Original post)

16. By the time I was in 6th grade

I'd read a lot of British history, including a fair amount on the Tudors - you know, Henry VIII -divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived? Not to mention all the ancillary beheadings and executions during that period that were easily as bad as the IS beheadings for poor technique and effectiveness. Read the account of the execution of Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury. It wasn't for nothing that Ann Boleyn requested to be beheaded by a swordsman from France.
