My friend’s brother once made a belt out of oleander branches and had to go to the hospital. He also had a huge rash around his midsection and refused to go swimming without a shirt because of it. Needless to say he never did that again.
you have to show support for AT LEAST ONE OF THE POISONS?!!? if you were in charge of the king's dungeon and have to poison a child molestor which would you choose? what if it was Socrates you were putting to death?
well if you want to try to get away with murder it might not work it wouldnt have worked on me because we had phone calls to prove it was murder
my dad tried to kill me by tampering with the moths/caterpillars in my stomach knowing i had them and what they could do because he watched your scishow vid that i cant prove
however there was a youtuber who called him and told him exactly what was going on and how he needed to get me to a place where my stomach could be pumped

for those interested about the murdered mortician;
in early 2016, an Indonesian woman named Jessica Kumala Wongso poisoned her friend, Mirna, in a cafe using cyanide. Mirna who drank the poisoned coffee died minutes later after ingestion, the funny thing is the cafe had CCTV that proved Jessica has put something into Mirna's coffee before the murder took place aand yet the case took a year to finish. Jessica convicted with murder with 20-years jail sentece.

2:46 ...And it failed. Yes, cyanide failed to kill the almighty Rasputin. A couple of gunshots and stab wounds, along with a brutal pummelling by multiple men had to finish the job.
