    Knut Hamsen. The allies said he was senile so they wouldn't have to prosecute him after WWII. He wrote a book in order to convince everyone it wasn't true but it wasn't publicized widely. To me that's more tragic than trying to stay at the party too long.

            I don't think I can agree with that. Those qualities are much needed, but they can develop in so many ways. Also, I'd say that going into the opposite causes the same effect; there are so many depressed, dandy writers who seem to get those qualities exactly because of their good looks.

            Here's a fun fact for you anon: everybody is entitled to a good strong jaw, just like everybody is entitled to two eyes, one mouth, one nose, two ears etc regardless of parents.
            Why, then, is a good jaw so rare?
            Entirely environmental: mouthbreathing from an early age, untreated malocclusions, lack of meat in the diet are all contributing factors to someone's face growing downwards (and therefore not developing the jaw enough) rather than forwards (with a strong jaw).

            You didn't lose the genetic lottery, you just had moronic parents that didn't notice you were developing terrible habits that would inevitably frick you up for life.

            You don't understand how alleles work.

            There's both a genetic and an environmental aspect to the development of your jaw.
            I don't know why anyone would say that "everyone is genetically entitled to a good strong jaw". That's like saying everyone is entitled to beautiful eyes. You're entitled to have eyes, not beautiful eyes, and in the same way you're entitled to a jaw, not a good strong jaw.
            The potential of your jaw is genetically determined, but developing it to its potential does also rely on good tongue posture, nose breathing and masticating hard chewy food

    Kafka died a slow death of starvation because he couldn't eat

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymouṡ

      Boethius was executed by having a cord tightened around his head. This was a common torture method back in the day (see e.g. the opera Tosca) so I guess it was painful.

      Sherwood Anderson swallowed a toothpick on a sea voyage and died in his cabin from peritonitis, which is supposedly excruciating.

      Several famous figures died of starvation.

      Kurt Godel thought people were trying to poison him and would only eat food prepared by his wife, so when she died he stopped eating.

      Isak Dinesen supposedly just stopped eating for some reason.

      Not sure how painful that is though. You're going to get weaker and weaker. I think after a while you're not going to be feeling much.

    >Unable to tolerate the prospect of being imprisoned once more, in September 1793 he locked himself into his office and shot himself in the face. The pistol malfunctioned and he did not die even though he shot off his nose and his right eye. He then repeatedly stabbed his neck with a razor, but failed to cut an artery. He finally used the razor to stab himself in the chest and to cut his own hocks, aiming at the veins. He dictated to those who came to arrest him the well-known declaration “Moi, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas de Chamfort, déclare avoir voulu mourir en homme libre plutôt que d'être reconduit en esclave dans une maison d'arrêt”, which he signed in a firm hand. His butler found him unconscious in a pool of blood. From then until his death in Paris the following year, he suffered intensely and was attended to by a gendarme, whom he paid a crown a day.

    Boethius was tortured and executed in a brutal manner. Origen was also tortured to death. St. Maximus had his tongue and writing hand cut off and kept writing, but died of natural causes.

    I recall some lesser known Patristic writer bit his own tongue out after already being tortured for a while for fear that he would lose his nerve and deny Christ, as they were trying to get him to do.

    Saint Polycarp was burnt to death without being tied to the stake after claiming that the same God to whom he was going would let him abide the flames without terror.
