Larry's list calls to mind _Dutch rub_, analogous to the Indian burn. With
the Dutch rub, the knuckles were ground back and forth on the skull of the
inferior person. The Indian burn involved grabbing someone's wrist with
both hands and twisting smartly back and forth, stretching the skin taut
in both directions. Was any other little brother out there the recipient
of such torture from an older brother? (i.e. has anyone else lived to tell
about it?)
