When you discover a tiny papercut on your thumb by grabbing a handful of corn chips from a bag.

ouch!

I always discover it during the summer by getting a papercut full of old bay

Oooh that's even worse!

Today we were talking about food related pain... and old bay in the paper cut was actually beaten out by rubbing your eyes after playing with peppers. (and by we I mean my friends at lunch)

Jan did that once and still talks about it.  I got her beat though, when I had to be pepper sprayed for training in the academy I shut my eyes at that time, but forgot about being careful later when I was showering (which reactivates whatever is left in your hair and on your skin).  It got in my eyes and nose and I had another whole coughing fit.  And for extra special fun, pepper-spray-water runs down your whole body...

I'm glad I only had to do that once (not counting the times on the street but those were more tangential hits, not full in the face like the qualifier).

that definitely beats it
Strikeouts are boring - besides that, they're fascist.  Throw some ground balls.  More democratic.

I once engaged in a vigorous round of oral sex after eating habanero peppers only hours before...not so painful for me.
Hey, nice marmot!

I want to punch people in the face who use double-click when surfing the web. I don't know why it bothers me so much.

Are you my husband? He stands over my shoulder yelling how many clicks it f-king takes to open this or that? 

Also don't tell UGG I insinuated that you're my husband because, you know, she's a little paranoid about our relationship as it is.

:D Consider yourself punched in the face then!

Hehe, I won't tell her. I can't guarantee for your safety if she reads it though. In that case: It's been nice knowing you.

Ok, you can double-click links. I think you're big and strong. I'm not going to punch you. I'll just punch saltine again instead.
