Ouch, painful! But what hurts most out of stubbing toe, stepping on Lego, paper cut or hitting funny bone?

Sometimes the smallest accidents such as stubbing your toe can hurt the most

First published in

STUBBING your toe, stepping on something sharp like Lego, a paper cut or knocking your funny bone.

If you could pick just one of these embarrassingly trivial but ridiculously agonising events to never experience again based on it being the most painful which would you choose?

What other teeny-tiny events that hurt like mad can you think of that nobody should ever be subjected to again?

Alternatively, on a more serious note, what would you say is the most physically painful thing you’ve ever experienced? Do you agree with the many who say childbirth is the most painful experience a person can go through? How can pain be measured?
