    Re: waterboarding

    Waterboarding is a way of simulating drowning by pouring water over someone's face when they are lying on an inclined board. Here's a painting of the Khmer Rouge using it that is in a museum in Phnom Penh :

    A backwood is a rural area, often associated with being out of touch with modern life.
