Burning to death doesn't hurt as bad as we assume it too. I've read that it just feels really warm.

No, i am not fun at parties.

You serious?

From what I have read before is one of the most painful ways to die.

I believe the one I'm afraid of the worst is dying drowned, because of the exasperation I get from holding my breath.

Drowning must be horrible. The worst drowning scene I've ever seen was in the movie The Grey. It was a good movie.

Contrary to popular belief, money and items doesn't always mean happiness

"I have nothing" was one of the complaints.

I remember reading this book in 6th grade (I forget the title) and it said something along the lines, 'I became the richest man on Earth with everything I will eber want or need at my feet, but yet I feel as though I have nothing'

I feel emetional pain because can can be stronger than physical.

Shut up, you ******* pansy, try driving a nail through your hand, then tell me which can be worse.

I'm not saying one is worse than the other, but it's too different to compare directly.

The difference can mean that the guy on the bottom wants to live, and the guy on top wants to die.

1) My father died on my birthday in front of me.
2) in the 33 years I have been alive I have suffered second degree burns, 7 car crashes, multiple stabbings, beatings and electrocution.
Trust me when I say emotional pain IS stronger

Not sure it's true, but I heard that if you catch on fire it doesn't hurt because the fire burns your nerves and stuff
User avatar #115 to #92 - thechosentroll (06/28/2013) [-]
Only if it practically incinerates your flesh. In which case you'd be dead in 2 seconds, anyway. 5 if you hold your breath.

I've read that being ignored releases the same chemicals on the brain as if you were physically injured.

Of course, it also depends on the injury I suppose.
#60 to #30 - zacsuntibidea (06/28/2013) [-]
I still haven't found the research, but I'm pretty sure that the quantity is what changes based on injury. The chemicals would be the same, likely with similar ranges of quantities for Injury and being ignored.
If you happen to find the research, I would like to know where. (I suck at navigating scientific boards)

there are things that some people would endure if it meant to fix something in their lives.

Sticks and stones will break your bones but words leave emotional wounds that will never heal.




... It was funnier in the comic.

Well, the fact is that given enough physical pain you would die, but emotional pain can be in there until you are forced to end it yourself through physical pain.

It says "can be". Still blew extra air out of my nostrils though
User avatar #1 - thewalruss (06/27/2013) [-]
The thing with emotional pain, is that you're concious of your own pain, therefore it grows deeper while you're thinking about it. Physical pains is a natrual response to the things that hurt you, and there is a limit. Some psycologists state that the emotional pain is a choice, while physical pain is inevitable.
User avatar #3 to #1 - magicalsteve (06/27/2013) [-]
Before somebody says "If it's a choice then why don't you just choose not too?" it's not nearly that easy.
User avatar #4 to #3 - thewalruss (06/27/2013) [-]
It's not easy... but there were cultures were the death was okay, for instance. The emotional pain is a social adquiered response to certain events, it's all about perpective. For example, I learned how to do without thinking... that's incredibly useful when you have to strugle with emotional pain.

wouldn't the fire burn your nerves so you wouldn't feel much pain after a couple of seconds
User avatar #72 to #48 - vatra (06/28/2013) [-]
Takes more than a few a seconds. Try two to five minutes depending on the intensity of the flames, which coincidentally is more than enough to kill you.

Good god man he's not in a furnace.

I might have messed up with the time, but it is still very likely that I'm right
User avatar #88 to #48 - neiharakon (06/28/2013) [-]
Even if the nerves weren't burnt, it's very possible that the flames would cause a sensory overload. This would lead to the nerves being shutdown by the brain. It's a self-defense mechanism, however it does very from person to person. Sometimes it can occur from a simple fracture but sometimes even flame on flesh is still fully felt.
