I knew hemlock was one of the deadly ones but had no prior knowledge of how many kinds there were.
Each with different...killing potential. Some peaceful (If you call a creeping death peaceful) some quite violent!

The highlighted leads hold quite a bit of interesting history involving that plant.

The closing pages of Plato's Phaedo provide a stunning picture of the effects of poison upon the body of Socrates. Plato describes a slowly ascending paralysis, beginning in Socrates' feet and creeping steadily up his legs toward his chest, with Socrates' mind remaining clear until the end. Death arrives calmly and peacefully.
The successful woman is the woman that had the chance and took it!
