OUCH! THINGS THAT REALLY HURT...
Random Thoughts about Pain
This is just a little silly, but my husband and I put together a list of things that we thought really hurt either from experience or from what other's have told us. I know we've missed many, so I'd love to hear your comments and see what you can add, just so we can all say "ooooohhhhhhh!" with you. Let's just try to keep it not too graphic so we don't get completely grossed out....

Pain is Relative
According to a source on Wikipedia, the threshold of pain is the point at which pain begins to be felt. The article gives this explanation: the intensity at which a stimulus (e.g., heat, pressure) begins to evoke pain is the threshold intensity. So, if a hotplate on your skin begins to hurt at 42°C (107°F), then that is the pain threshold temperature for that bit of skin at that time. 42°C is not the pain threshold, it is the temperature at which the pain threshold was crossed.
Because our brains are different and pain is a subjective experience, it is why some may believe others to be weaker or stronger because they have a lower or higher "threshold".
