Yesterday, I vas involved in a little dare-chalenge vith some guys at my gym. The chalenge vas simple, if a bit stupid (but I'm a sucker for those hehe :P ). Basicly, one of them wuld hold a lighted cigarete-lighter, and we'd all take turns, holding the palm of our hand above the flame, the flame actualy touching it, as long as we culd w/o flinching avay. Wel, long story short, I won the chalenge, I held it over the flame for about 8 seconds (2 seconds longer then the second-runner) before the pain got too much. Actualy that vas about 4 seconds too long, since I got my skin burned enogh that I stil have to apply ointment to my palm today and keep my hand wraped-up until it heals. So yea, not the smartest thing I ever did... :P ...but stil a fun litle dare! But aniway I'm curius if anyone has ever done something similar, and vhat have you discovered about how sensitive (or lack of same) you are to pain.
