Because I am currently house sitting for a scientist who is helping out with the oil spill in Louisiana, I decided to be a little scientisty myself. That and I am catching up on my Nerdfighter videos.

Therefore, the scientific answer to why we feel pain: “…when energy enters you it can be pleasant like standing in a sunshiny day, but if it’s too much energy, it will actually start to break down the bonds that make up the chemicals that make up your [body]. That’s right, you…are made of chemicals. And when that happens your body is like, ‘NO! MAKE THAT STOP!’ And so it tells you that there’s something wrong which is why we feel pain.”

FANtastic. 🙂
