    IgNobels - Awards for research that makes you go 'huh?'



    http://phys.org/news/2015-09-bee-huh-ig-nobels.html


    "A Cornell University graduate student who allowed honeybees to sting him in 25 places and a group of scientists who concluded it's possible for one man to father 888 children are among the winners of this year's Ig Nobels, which honor humorous scientific achievement.


    Michael Smith estimates he was stung about 200 times during his 2012 honeybee study. His conclusion: The three most painful places to get stung are the nostril, the upper lip and the male sex organ.

    "A sting to the nostril is so painful it's like a whole body experience," he said."

    Rode a motorcycle to work as a young man. Bee hit me in the chest and fell on my pants stinging me through the fabric. Pain was bad but the swelling was awful.:D
