May 9, 2013
submit to reddit

We're big fans of the guys at AsapSCIENCE - Canadians Gregory Brown and Mitchell Moffit.

Their latest video is a good one and it gets into some pretty sensitive territory, posing the question: Which is more painful - giving birth or getting kicked in the balls?

They break down the physiological impact of both, while exploring the definition of pain and the anatomy of our bodies - doing it all in an entertaining way.
