So in my going on 6 decades on this ball of dirt I’ve received multiple gouges, cuts, and even been stabbed a couple of times (no lie!!!).
Today I got a tiny little cut on my finger from a shard of glass and it hurt like a sonovabitch!!!:mad:
Which reminded me that of the times I got stabbed I felt almost nothing…EVER! Not even when it was healing.
So why do paper cuts and other tiny injuries sting but bigger ones don’t?
My guess is the body doesn’t send an endorphin rush to the little ones.
This has to be a better theory than the shrug I got from the butthole doctors I asked the couple of times I was more severely injured.
