Prometheus bound

classic Greek mythology of Prometheus. Prometheus stole the secret of fire from the gods to give it to people. Zeus got very very pissed at him and chained him to a giant mountain in the Caucasus and had an eagle eat his liver every day, while at night his liver would grow back, having the entire torture get repeated day after day. So the lesson here is: no good deed goes unpunished.
