Rumor has it that there was a ancient inhumane torture called "Skinning" in China.

The subject's body lower than its neck would be buried in earth with its head revealed.

Then the executor would cut its skin on head open and pour mercury onto the wound.

Because the density of the mercury was so strong that it would creep down between this person's skin and flesh.

Thus the subject would feel too itchy and pain to bear, then jump out of the soil with its skin left behind.

Do you believe this rumorous torture?
