The Pain Scale


I think they should have a chart like this at the aid stations in some of my races.

I remember when Jenni was in labor with Derek and the contractions started to get pretty uncomfortable, they asked her where she was on the scale. She said something like "4". I looked at the chart and looked at her, and said, "your face doesn't look like that". I think she has a pretty high threshold for pain.

If men had to go through labor, I think the species would have gone extinct long ago.
