University of Arizona entomologist Justin Schmidt developed a scale to rank the most painful bites and stings in the world. How did he do this, you ask? Well this madman subjected himself to 150 creatures bites in order to figure out which was the worst, which he accompanied with a blurb and a ranking from 1 to HOLY SHIT THAT’S HORRIBLE (or 4). His pain is most definitely our gain.
