Went to the archery range with my Cub Pack this week for a little self mutilation. It seems I cannot fire a recurve bow without whacking my arm with the bow string. ouch!

1)Citrus juice or infection in severe hangnail
2)standing and bumping my bony bald head on open cabinet door, always manage to get the point of the door too ;)
3)Stubbing pinky toe..my pinky toes no longer look human after +49 years of this abuse...
4)The throbbing after grabbing hot pot handle or lid..why is there always a slight delay in releasing the godam thing..

Papercuts.

Particularly when you need to find another place to put a roll of papers while you grab something, so you stick down your pants. And you are going commando. :cry:

Stepping on beer caps in a hot tub.

Loading too many magazines without alternating thumbs and not using a loader.

In grown facial hair.

Once a year OC spray cert.

Standing up into the bottom of a car door mirror.

That itch between your shoulder blades that you just can't quite get with either hand.

Alright I've got one for you, but I will start by examples of what seems like mere child's play in comparison. I've had a branch of pine needles slap me square in my open eye, with 3 penetrations. I have had 3 toes from the big toe across broken and the toe nails ripped off. I've pissed a kidneystone the size of an Excedrin 300mg pill. I got scratched in the eye by a ferret (which itches for months). I dislocated my neck, which didn't hurt at first but the 3 weeks of non ability to move that neck and the cramping and pains that involved was a real pain. Most bone have been broken but thats serious stuff and still doesn't compare to the top 3.

To top the list:
1. I disintegrated my tailbone skateboarding at 14. You can live without a tailbone, its not that needed, but the pain I endured for 8 months was a reminder every second of the highest level of my pain threshold. Especially when you finally can walk around without pain and you forget and sit down on it... I still get shivers remembering intense acute pain. (9.7 pain scale)

2. Cluster headaches... Its like a cross between the worst migraines one can experience and what you might imagine hell must be like. Thing is they last 3 to 7 days and nothing helps. You can't sleep, eat, see, vomit, urinate, function in any way. Crying hurts to much, and whimpering is such an effort you hope that the lack of oxygen kills you, but eventually you black out anyways and wake up either in a brain raping pain or completely fine like nothing ever happened. Best part about it is, there was nothing wrong with you physically. A nightmare of pain beyond imagine and you are physically in perfect health. (9.9 pain scale, if there is a worse I'd rather die)

3. A Charley horse that lasts more than 24 hours. Ouch... Sodium can kill you, and it can also cause some severe pain. (7.5 pain scale)

Wait Edit: Heart Ache and Love Loss is one of the most depraved agonies that is of very little consequence to the actual health and survivability of a person.

Ooch!

I can tell you that while a normal paper cut hurts, it's much worse when using diazo blueprint paper. Blueprint paper is developed using a black light and the paper is coated with diazo salt so when you get a paper cut it automatically is like pouring salt into the cut. Add to that the fac that using high speed paper in the machine the paper is going past your hand at 4 feet a second, one slip and it's like running your hand on a band saw.

When you're cleaning out from under your fingernails with something pointy and accidentally go too deep by a fraction of a millimeter, and the bitch throbs all day.

i broke my hand at 3 places, it hurted , but not that bad since it took me 2 day's before to go to the hospital, i also broke my wrist, that was more painful but my worse pain came from the fall i did with my bike , i felt on my elbow and managed to scratch the "funny bone" if you know what i mean, you know like when you it the right spot on your elbow and then you feel like a electric charge just passe through your entire body and your arm became numb for a few minutes ? well take that and multiply it X10

the bone wasn't even broken, it was just chipped, but still, i needed 5 mg of morphine to calm me down , worse pain ever


and about something that hurt like hell but don't need a lot to do so : i think all gentleman here share the same weakness right ?

I shattered my funny bone (tip/bulb of my humerus) when i was 12; the worst part was having to walk a mile home. I had to bend my arm apply pressure to it to my torso to have a manageable level pain. I passed out in radiology when the tech attempted to straighten it for an X-ray, I was told an unholy blood curdling scream was emitted and my mom in the waiting room had to be restrained from busting the door down. Two surgeries and a few screws and it is about 85-90% normal.

Back to small things, a cardboard paper cut.

I've been working with computer for a very long time. Twenty-five years ago memory chips were just that - actual chips - 1" long black rectangles with pins protruding from the sides. You had to snap them into the main board. There were special chip puller tools to remove them from the board but if you were not careful, it would slip out while you were yanking it out and when that happened, you would often "Insert" the chip into your finger - with all of the pins painfully embedded into your skin. Only thing that I can remember that hurts worse than a paper cut.

Stepping on le...

Oh, we've discussed that one already.

For me: stepping on bees. Yeah, that sucked.
