Ouch to the computer--I hope it's fixed soon!

Ow ow ow to the root canal and the surgery.  I'm having surgery in December to correct my underbite and I'm deathly afraid of needles... aie.   :o

I personally don't think the girls were raped... harrassed, definitely.  Raped?  Probably not, if only because it seems to me something they'd all brag about.  I've not yet read Greg and Penny's book (I want to!) so.

My toothache is a mere annoyance.  :-/

You are in my prayers for good health!  

But this thread is really too much, and there are some genuinely inappropriate images being presented here.

One thing I do remember reading is that after the murders, some of the men who came to help with the burial were angry because they had wanted to rape the girls...but from what I gather, Yurovsky probably wouldn't have allowed it.  


Yes, I remember this too.  These were Ermakov's men, and I'm not sure that Yurovsky -- with only a few of his own men with him at the time -- would have been able to control them.  It just goes to show that while things were dreadful, they could have been much worse.  :-[

Good luck with the tooth.  I've had oral surgery (twice!) and a root canal.  Neither were a big deal, other than being inconvenienced.

Just an excuse to eat lots of pudding!
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Since I'd love to see this thread disappear, I'm going to create a 'poster's health forum,' so we can compare and contrast our various aches and pains.

Another service provided by the Claimant Committee. . . :D

Poster's health forum, Rodger? Are you serious?!  :o (Need I ask?!)  :P Well, actually why not. We've all become sort of a club . . . or is that one big happy/sometimes unhappy semi-functional family?!?   :-*

I agree with Rodger...I would like to see this thread eliminated.  I realize that this possibility did exist as the girls were always in a position of danger, but there has been no real evidence put forward to substaniate the idea, except for emotional abuse.  The corpse of the Empress being fondled.....really....there are children here.  I'm sure I will be criticized for wanting to interfere with research and knowledge....but even the experts in this forum don't believe it happened.  Let's let the GDs rest in peace on this issue.   Just my 2 cents.

Agreed -- this dead horse has been flogged.

Perhaps it is time to lock this thread -- if only because it has veered so far off topic.  If anyone wants to discuss any of the subjects contained in this thread, maybe they could just start a new thread specifically for that topic?
