    It is probably as well they cannot. I fear there would be some VERY disappointed owners!

    Verdigris is NOT ".... belly hairs, bugs, intestine membranes, dried skin, blood."

    Verdigris as per Merriam-Webster:

    ver·di·gris noun \ˈvər-də-ˌgrēs, -ˌgris, -grəs also -ˌgrē\

    Definition of VERDIGRIS


    1

    a : a green or greenish-blue poisonous pigment resulting from the action of acetic acid on copper and consisting of one or more basic copper acetates
    Try to read your own thread more carefully because "poisonous" pigment will get you very bad infection if you accidentally get cut handling the item.

    The flesh-eating bacterium called Hemolytic Streptococcus is a rapidly spreading infection. Intense local heat, redness, swelling, fever, and weakness characterize this rapidly developing infection. The infection can start with a small abrasion or injury. This condition requires immediate medical treatment. It can result in amputation and/or death. Treatment consists of surgical removal of the infected tissue and IV antibiotics and supportive care as needed for any failing body functions.

    "What we have here....is a failure....to communicate!"

    First of all this is not my thread - Im not the OP and Ive written nothing about poison in any way, shape or form.

    Secondly, Im not disputing, that a person can get sick from something. That is not the point AT ALL; Im merely telling you, that you got the definition of 'verdigris' wrong.

    You are, of course, referring to Group A Streptococcus, more commonly known as S. pyrogenes. Whilst it is true that it does indeed cause necrotizing fasciitis, it far more commonly causes far less severe conditions. The infections you are referring to are caused by a specific sub-type, Group A β-hemolytic streptococcus. It is responsible for around 500,000 global deaths per year, but only a small proportion of these are due to your 'flesh-eating' infection type.

    Sometimes rust is just rust.

    Sometimes but not this time:

    The main construction of the guillotine has always been the same since its invention in 1792 until the abbolision of the deathpenalty in 1981. But changes and improvements were made.
