"He kept this up for 38 days, stinging himself three times each on 25 different body parts, and then released this 'after' picture."

Oh Jesus of the Christians are you the serious person right now or just doing the trolling because I have the trouble believing someone could have this much stupidity.

Literally Addicted: Okay. So, there are no outliers? That the findings are applicable in 100% of all real cases?

Of course there are the outliers. Dear lord.

I'm not a fan of generalizations.

All medical science and social science and engineering and physics and every other of the fields is based on the generalizations. That is how science does the working. Dear lord.

My point is that my "10" is likely different than someone else's, but I doubt it's just because I'm female.

They did not just utilize the factors of subjective measurement in these studies. In the factual information I directly linked to you the studies of the non-subjective measures.

Differences in physiology, psychology, age and culture are all factors in how an individual tolerates pain.

This does not dispute the findings in the any way or the shaping or the formation. The gender differences still have existence. You are making the argument of cause as sex versus gender versus something else of this. That does not change the differences having the existence.

This is why I find the studies argumentative.

But the anecdote is okay? Listen you are suffering from the back firing effect. That is what happens when you learn that the view of you about something is wrong so you do all that can be done by you to convince yourself that you were indeed the correct person. You are not. I know that it has the sucking. Sometimes the studies conducted by me turn out not the way I have done the hypothesizing. That is the disappointing thing but I make the acknowledgement that the science is much more important than the anecdote. You are not having the persecution. You were wrong. Get over this.

Mr_Crink: Feeling conflicted about this post: It seems like a total breakdown of the MSTD character facade, but It is a beautiful smackdown on its own merits. Meow is the best Alt. ever. Truly dedicated, totally grating, and been doing this schtick for an unbelievably long amount of time.

The five year birthday of the Farkreation of me is in less than the month. Unfreakable will then send me to kindergarten I am having the telling of.

If I was his professor, there's no way I would be able to stop myself from giving him B on this.

"We need the following up study with the females. Females do not have as strong the pain tolerance as the males but also have the differences in the anatomy."

Women aren't that stupid.
