Taking one for the team

Michael Smith of Cornell University in New York shares the Ig Nobel in medicine for his work on assessing the pain of honey bee stings, which varies according to body location.

Dr Smith donated his own bodyto the cause, carefully applying honey bees to 25 locations and assessing the pain of each sting based on a comparison to his “internal standard” – a sting to his forearm. In a finding that will go down in the annals of scientific discovery, he concluded in his study published in the online journal PeerJ: “The three least painful positions were the skull, middle toe and upper arm… the three most painful locations were the nostril, upper lip and penis shaft.”


Who TF would deliberately get themselves stung on the willy in the interest of science?

:shock: , :shock: , :shock: and :shock:

"2015 IG PHYSICS PRIZE — Patricia Yang [USA and TAIWAN], David Hu [USA and TAIWAN], and Jonathan Pham, Jerome Choo [USA], for testing the biological principle that nearly all mammals empty their bladders in about 21 seconds (plus or minus 13 seconds).

How many hours did they spend watching animals piddle? And who paid for it?
