Schmidt Sting Pain Index

Justin O. Schmidt has a pain index (Schmidt Sting Pain Index) for insect stings. Talk about sacrifices for qualitative science.
3.0 Red harvester ant: Bold and unrelenting. Somebody is using a drill to excavate your ingrown toenail."
Unfortunately I don't find I get stung nearly enough to find this useful.

Hey, Bayblab . . .
Since you have tangled with 'The Canadian Cancer Research Group' in the past, I thought you might be interested to know that it has pretty well disappeared.
The website that comes up when you GOOGLE it is "cached" and when you click on 'Contact Us' you get the address of another, unrelated company.
The guy behind the CCRG pulled all his enterprises (OncomatRx, Aminomics, Immune System Management, etc,) out of that address and moved them to a new address several blocks distant under the collective name "ISM Clinic and Lab'. But he left the Canadian Cancer Research Group (CCRG) behind - except as a cached website with the wrong address.
