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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

wouldn't the fire burn your nerves so you wouldn't feel much pain after a couple of seconds

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.

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.

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
