The history of the person which hasn't died of the invention.

Really here there should be a long and a terrifying story about  doctor Joseph-Ignase Gilotine who has died of "hands" of the invention with the same name. However it will be a lie. The kind doctor has died own death in 1814. Why is the kind? Because  he tried to facilitate a fate sentenced to the death penalty through beheading his invention. Before executions it were made by means of a sword or an axe, and executioners not always managed to be beheaded from the first — it was required two and even three blows. Doctor Gilotin thought it is inhumane and in general supported full abolition of capital punishment. He considered the invention as a transitive stage in this business.
