The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Dark, foreboding questions

Last night I was sitting at my desk, waiting for the arrival of various ghosts and goblins, and, in tune with the date, I was contemplating the kinds of pain and sorrow that I could reasonably expect in the next few years, other than the obvious one of going to work. Two things hit me at once: I have a dental appointment next Tuesday, and right after that appointment, I get to stuff myself into the voting booth.

Okay, not the stuff of medieval torture chambers, but certainly enough to register on the Discomfort Meter. And since I'd already picked out my candidates, I figured I might as well do some research on the bevy of State Questions on this year's ballot. The results, such as they are, can be seen in The Vent. As for the ghosts and goblins, they apparently got the night off.

I had a question about medieval torture chambers. I know there was a chair that they would put people on to get confessions out of them. I also know it had spikes on it. Was it called the Confession Chair? Because I can't find information about it on the interent. The sooner you could respond to this the better because I need this for a project due THIS MONDAY. Thanx for all you help.

Are you perhaps thinking of the Interrogation Chair?

Picture here.

It does seem to fit the bill.
