Man Lets Bees Sting His Penis And Body In The Name Of Science And Some Fake Award

A man has earned scientific recognition after he agreed to let a bee sting him on his penis in the name of research. Michael L Smith let the insects loose on his own body, ending up with stings on his male appendage and 24 other places. His dedication to the cause earned Smith an Ig Nobel prize for physiology and entomology. The Ig Nobel prizes seek to celebrate achievements that first make people laugh and then make them think, as a spoof on the more serious Nobel Prize awarded in Sweden, which will be announced next month. The annual prizes, meant to entertain and encourage global research and innovation, are awarded by the Annals of Improbable Research. But although Smith, from Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York, carefully arranged for honey bees to sting him repeatedly on 25 different locations on his body to learn about pain, he ended up sharing the gong with another researcher. On his research, Smith explained: "If you’re stung in the nose and the penis, you’re going to want more stings to the penis, over the nose –if you’re forced to choose. "There’s definitely no crossing of wires of pleasure and pain down there. It’s painful. Getting stung on the nose is a whole body ­experience. Your body really reacts. You’re sneezing and wheezing and snot is just dribbling out. It’s electric and pulsating." But perhaps even more galling was that his Ig Nobel prize is jointly awarded to Justin Schmidt, for painstakingly creating the Schmidt Sting Pain Index, which rates the relative pain people feel when stung by various insects. Smith, who previously studied bee-keeping at Atlantic College in Cowbridge near Cardiff, took agitated bees in forceps and applied them to 25 different areas of his body. He then rated the resulting pain from zero to ten. His injuries on the skull, middle toe tip, and upper arm were ruled the least painful and on the nostril, upper lip, and penis shaft were the most painful. Marc Abrahams, awards founder closed the awards event with the customary punchline: "If you didn't win an Ig Nobel prize tonight - and especially if you did - better luck next year." Other prizes for unusual exploits include the chemistry prize given to Callum Ormonde and Colin Raston from Australia, and Tom Yuan, Stephan Kudlacek, Sameeran Kunche, Joshua N. Smith, William A. Brown, Kaitlin Pugliese, Tivoli Olsen, Mariam Iftikhar, Gregory Weiss [USA], for inventing a chemical recipe to partially un-boil an egg. Among the 10 awards, three went to teams of researchers that revealed that nearly all mammals regardless of size take about 21 seconds to pee, showed it is possible to partially un-boil an egg with chemicals, and used math to determine how a North African emperor from the 17th century fathered 888 children in just 30 years. Other teams earned prizes for attaching a weighted stick to a chicken's rear end to demonstrate how dinosaurs might have walked, and for showing that acute appendicitis can be diagnosed by how much pain a patient feels when driven over speed bumps. Former winners of real Nobels handed out the spoof awards at the ceremony at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, organised by Marc Abrahams, editor of the Annals. The ceremony included a three-act mini-opera about a competition between the world's millions of species to determine which one is the best.

Bee-stings-Where-it-hurts-most-to-be-stung-by-a-bee

Now off the bat i was like this guys crazy for thinking you’d rather get stung on the penis than the nose but then i gave it a second thought and changed my mind and kinda justified it. Listen If I were to take an average time of  how fast it can take me to jizz its probably some where between 1 minutes and 1 minute 1 second. There’s no scientific evidence to prove that this would work the way i think in my head but if a bunch of bees stung my dick and balls MAYBE just MAYBE id loose just enough sensitivity that I would last long enough to match the time of some sexy R&B song maybe. Is it a crazy thought? yes. But probably from putting on some pain reducing numbing cream all over the place it’ll dull the sensation to the right point where it still feels good but don’t disappoint her. Now as for the nose. I have pretty good skin so growing up i never had to use any acne things. Some people would use like Accutane and want to go on a murderous rampage. Thank god that wasn’t me. But once or twice i got a black head and thought i should remove it so i rummaged through my sisters thing that was use to remove black heads. One end had like a rope thing and the other end was like a fucking hypodermic needle. Both ends of those things SUCKED. Must be like a bazillion nerve endings at the nose. Just poking it and shit make me tear up and stuff from the pain. I hope that’s normal if not then fuck you, leave me alone about my pain threshold. Maybe one more relatable is when your picking your nose and like you yank on one that pulls a nose hair. Or Just pulling a nose hair in general. Shit would bring me to my knees in an instant. I imagine that pain is just as bad as a bee sting there and I can’t stand that type of pain.

So all in all, Yea Michael Smith here might have gotten some fake award in the name of science but really he should get a real nobel prize and i hope for his sake that he’s using his award to try to hook up with women. Its the least he can do for his penis after letting it get fucked up intentionally by Bees.

P.s- “There’s definitely no crossing of wires of pleasure and pain down there.”  Would be devious of Michael if he was some sadomasochist who just cums from every bee sting on his dick. Like on the record just fake being like he’s in pain form the bee stings when really the pain just turns him into a freak sex slave to bee stings.

P.P.S- This blog post is weird and i revealed maybe too much about my jizz/stamina with women.

Today In Science We Already Knew: Cats Suck And Don’t Need Humans

Cats don't seem to attach to their owners the way dogs do Your cat doesn’t really need you, new study suggests. According to a new study published in PLOS One journal, cats show little to no separation anxiety when they’re away from their owners and if/when they decide to stick around their human, it’s because they really want to. Researchers studied the behavior of 20 cats after being placed in an unfamiliar location with their owner and with a stranger. The results suggest that our feline friends show little to no signs of distress when left alone in strange environments. “Although our cats were more vocal when the owner rather than the stranger left them with the other individual, we didn’t see any additional evidence to suggest that the bond between a cat and its owner is one of secure attachment,” researcher Daniel Mills, professor of Veterinary Behavioural Medicine at the University of Lincoln’s School of Life Sciences, told the Telegraph. Animal experts, however, say that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Cats don’t need humans to feel safe, and if they’re unhappy they have no qualms with walking out and not looking back. Therefore, when they feel comfortable enough to stay, they really mean it. The study, too, is small and highly interpretative. Cats display distress and emotion in a variety of different ways — so perhaps your cat is different.

Bonding. Thats the difference between Cats and Dogs. As we said earlier this week, Cats suck. They dont need affection and call me crazy but If i pay for an animal i kinda want it to show some affection thats real. Taking out the trash this morning i couldn’t leave the house for more than 20 feet before my buddy starting wondering where the fuck I went. Its okay buddy! Im gonna be back in 5 seconds! Not cats though. They just think they’re in charge and own shit. Taking dumps in boxes and shit not giving a fuck if you’re dead or alive. Cats are like cold bitches that are always annoying and selfish and just want what they want and then leave you. Just the worst. And again, it comes back to the cat people. Always so overly gross with affection for their “loving”cat always saying “isnt she precious!?!?!” No shes not and scientifically speaking she hates you. My dog, however, who looks cute and likes to huddle up to me and is playful and legit smiles at me and makes me feel like a better man when its thundering and he comes to me for security, thats love.

Research Says Psychopath Are Less Likely To Yawn From Contagiousness

(NEWSER) – A human behavior that's often contagious may provide a simple clue to whether a person is a psychopath, researchers from Baylor University have discovered, per Smithsonian. A study published in the Personality and Individual Differences journal finds that individuals with psychopathic traits—including coldheartedness, self-centered impulsivity, and "fearless dominance," per a press release—are less likely to "catch" a yawn from other people, an action that has suggested empathy and emotional connections with other people in past studies, Smithsonian explains. "I thought, 'If it's true that yawning is related to empathy, I'll bet that psychopaths yawn a lot less.' So I put it to the test," the study's lead author, Brian Rundle, says in the release. How he tested his hypothesis: After administering a psychological test to 135 students to see how they placed on the psychopath spectrum, his team applied electrodes to the subjects and placed them in front of computer screens that showed short clips of faces that were yawning, laughing, and neutral. The electrodes measured muscle and nerve reactions, plus how frequently subjects yawned. Researchers found the less empathy subjects had demonstrated on the test, the less likely they yawned. That doesn't mean if you don't catch a yawn, you're a psychopath, Rundle says. "The take-home lesson is not that if you yawn and someone else doesn't, the other person is a psychopath," he says in the release. "A lot of people didn't yawn, and we know that we're not very likely to yawn in response to a stranger we don't have empathetic connections with. … This is [just] a good starting point to ask more questions." (Yawning also gets less contagious as we age.)

Its 11:30 am and I’m yawning like a motherfucker cause i want to nap right now. Not saying that dispels any myth about my mental status but i don’t think Im crazy. And I don’t even think this study is crazy. It makes sense. I’ve been known to hate a lot. I compiled like a 15 page book comprised of this one person my buddy likes that i hate just to prove to him why i hate her. I had a list of people i despise when i have to be a delivery boy and deliver food to them. I hate a ton of people. But I’m not murdering in cold blood. See when you look into the eyes of like Joseph Kony or Putin. You can just see the hate in their eyes. Their brains constantly buzzing thinking about all the psychopath stuff they’re gonna do. It makes sense. If they were caught just in a crowded room yawning because someone below them is yawning it would undermine all authority. I picture a room full of people in a boring class yawning their balls off and theres just the kid in the back stewing his brain over someone he hates. No chance that psychopath fits into normal society and neither do his yawning habbits.

An Australian Professor Grew An Ear On His Arm And Plans To Hook It Up to Wifi so Everyone Can Hear Him.

Source- An artist who is growing an ear out of his arm has revealed how he plans to connect it to the internet so people can use it to listen to him. Australian oddball Stelarc has told how he wants to make the extra organ a porthole for people to listen in to his life, wherever they may be. The Curtin University professor, real name Stelios Arcadiou, originally came up with the idea for the ear back in 1996 and managed to convince a team of boffins to go ahead with it using his own tissue samples. Early attempts to install a microchip proved fruitless, but now the 69-year-old has announced plans to use his own stem cells to make the ear more three dimensional so that the microchip can be put in without the possibility of infection, and then linked up to wireless internet. He told ABC: "This ear is not for me, I've got two good ears to hear with. This ear is a remote listening device for people in other places.

The bottom line to this guy is that you have to be suuuper cocky to believe that ANY ONE wants to listen you you blabble 24/7 over the internet and through your wonky gross arm ear all all things. I mean spending twenty years boiling over the thought that people want to listen to you sooo much from your arm ear is cocky. He just pursued the idea for 20 years. twenty years. Thats insane. So much so that this guy probably as insane as Hitler. Oh you want to make sure your propaganda is spewing 24/7 from your arm ear? I bet hitler wanted to broadcast his kampf to millions of the arian nation too he just wasn’t looney enough to have an ear grown right in the middle of his forearm (and probs lacked the tech.)

This also is another reason why i hate a lot of art hipsters. Always wanting to be weird and show off and all of it to some degree is because they’re craving attention. “Oh look at my funky hair cut, i draw lines on this canvas to convey my emotions. oh look at my arm ear, i want the world to listen to everything i say.” So annoying. The worst.
