What is called the \"Chinese water torture\" was a torture described by Hippolytus de Marsiliis in the 16th century that was supposed to drive its victim insane with the stress of water dripping on a part of the forehead for a very long time. It may also be characterized by the inconsistent pattern of water drips. Supposedly, the desire for the human brain to make a pattern of the timing between the drops will also eventually cause insanity to set in. If the victim did not succumb to the interrogation, the water would eventually penetrate the victim’s skin and brain.[citation needed] This obviously would cause death (but it is unlikely to do, due to the amount of time needed for this to happen).
