Child Birth vs Getting Kicked in the Balls

A few seconds worth of Googling could save us from a lot of false info spreading.

One of the curses of social media is the ease and speed at which false information can be spread. I’ve heard these claims before, but recently there has been a spike in the “child birth surpasses the del pain limit that the human body can handle” posts across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We’ve had social media for quite a while now, and at this point I would have expected for its users in general to stop taking things they see on social media at face value, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

First off, the “Del” pain unit doesn’t even exist. The closets thing to a unit of measurement of pain is the dol, and its use is iffy at best. Pain is experienced differently by everyone, so a kick to the balls for one guy may be more painful than child birth for some women. Second, it’s a really dumb argument to have. If someone wants to claim to have the most painful experience, by all means, take it. I won’t fight you for it.
