    ....That's absolutely correct, my right index finger is much longer but my left is about even and I have a larger DBH.

    That seems unlikely. It wouldn't be a match for the text included with the guys on the painting. You see, it's like a cartoon. The characters have lines, and they have been translated. Click on the link I posted, and you can read more. The dialog clearly isn't depicting any kind of subjugation, and the priests seem concerned about the well-being of the soon to be prepuceless dude.

    "It is a depiction originally in Ankhmahor’s tomb dating to Dynasty 6 and reign of King Teti (2355-2343 BCE) which appears on the east thickness of a doorway in the tomb in the pyramid complex of Teti. Depicting two men being circumcised, the scene has been interpreted in different ways however the nude male at right is surmounted by an inscription in which he says: sin wnnt r mnx (“Sever, indeed, thoroughly”) and the man kneeling before him, identifed as a Hm-kA, mortuary priest, says: iw(.i) r irt r nDm (“I will proceed carefully”). Finally the man doing the restraining is saying: nDr sw m rdi dbA.f (“Hold him fast. Do not let him faint”) whilst the restrainer says: iri.i r Hst.k (“I will do as you wish”)."​

    That is prettyi much the story with any species of tree you harvested from the "fence row" type situation (city trees, trees around a famrstead, etc.)

    I see your point. It is a valid one and a good one.

    However it still is sad another young life ended to early for nothing. Either way you look at it.

    And sometimes, it is just a person's time to die, apparently...
    http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20151113-the-wine-that-comes-with-added-bite

    And, although extremely rare, it seems as though some snakes can survive in the bottle for months – possibly due to their ability to hibernate – sinking their fangs into whoever is unlucky enough to awaken them. In 2013, gruesome reports surfaced of a woman from China’s Heilongjiang Province being bitten on the hand after a snake jumped out of a bottle of wine where it had been fermenting for three months. She’d made the medicinal drink herself, allegedly from a viper, after a friend suggested it would help her joint pain. Snake bottling karma, perhaps?
