    Wikipedia has it wrong...

    According to Wikipedia tickling was used as punishment in the Middle Ages and in colonial America. By and large, thanks to the inexaustive research of Kujman, we know this isn't true at all and that the "goat's tongue torture" they refer to isn't about tickling, but very serious pain. So you see folks, just because it's "in print" doesn't necessarily make it truth.

    Talking of Kuj, they've also nicked one of his photos without crediting it to him. See the link above.

    he is credited, you just have to click on the photo for details. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Stockspic.jpg)

    as for the rest of the article, wikipedia isn't really a "they" as i'm sure you know, its a collective of people posting articles about various things of interest. if part of an entry is wrong, you have the ability to correct it yourself.

    Hey Jim: Long time no see. I looked at the above link you provided, but it doesn't look like they got it wrong at all. Here's what they say:

    "The first recorded use of tickle torture was during the Roman Empire when a method known as "goat licking" was employed as criminal punishment. Goat licking involved covering a victim's feet with salt or a sweet substance, and having a goat lick the soles raw usually resulting in painful blisters."

    Sounds pretty painful to me, however, I wouldn't entirely discount the tickling effect this treatment would have on a very ticklish person, UNTIL the pain set in. At very least, tickling was used as an infernal annoyance torture, that when prolonged, could quite possibly drive someone crazy. It's just that the tickling isn't quite the romantic fantasy that so many ticklephiles dream about.

    Smart arse.

    I didn't know that Wikipedia was structured like it is actually. I've never seen it before I searched Google for "tickling" and clicked on a link. Now I know this though I have a number of entries to make...

    They have it wrong when they attribute it to the middle ages and colonial America though. I'm not saying that people in stocks were NEVER tickled, but it definately wasn't a standard practice. If it had been, Kuj would have found out about it. Also, the tickling during the goat thing could be described as a side-effect at most, rather than the point.

    Nice to see you too mate, btw.

    YOu know if you feel strongly about it, you can actually go to wikipedia and change the journal entry. It's surprisingly easy.
    THIS IS SPARTA!

    I don't feel that strongly about it, I just thought it would be a moment of interest here.
