    You're right, I'm almost sure it's adrenaline that causes you to react the way you do.

    I once lost control of my bicycle when I was younger, because I was trying to avoid this guy who just seemed to appear, and my bike flipped, and I went head first into saome railings. I remember waking up with a load of people looking down on me, and blood was blurring my vision, but I felt no pain whatsoever.

    And then another time, I'd found a dog who'd got lost, so I had the dog under my arm, and I was heading home to phone the RSPCA to come pick it up, and I got attacked by a chav who I'd had experiences with several times before.
    I'd told him in the past exactly what I though of him, and that I look down on him as a sad pathetic child trying to gain 'respect' from all the other scumbags he hangs around with, and is really so insecure that he has to prove himself all the time.

    So anyway, he headbutted me and broke my nose >.<
    WHILST I had a young pup under my arm.

    The point of this is that I didn't feel pain either in that experience.


    (I'm really not too fussed about the broken nose, I'm getting a nose job in a year or two anyway >.<)

    Enoch was right.

    Gah, chav's... you should of told him the car boot sale down the road had a sale on

    I have had a few experiences with pain, the most recent was a few weeks ago, I was playing football and my friend (rather big for a 13 year old, muscles and such) well he plays for a team, in the academy for a really good team, well it was one end of the pitch, he kicked the ball has hard as he could to clear, but i was there, right in my face, vision was blurry and had a redface where the ball had hit, yet no pain.

    But the day before that someone fell on my wrist (which i broke a year ago) and it hurt like hell.

    Weird, but maybe aderenalin.

    I wasn't expecting the person falling on me, I was just chilling and but with the football I had spent the last hour running about getting took down anyway.

    Surprisingly, in Liverpool, chavs only attack other chavs or old people. Maybe that's because I'm a girl and go to a girls' school so don't know any male chavs. >_>

    Pain, is subjective. If we don't realise a cut is there, it won't bother us, unless it's damn freakin' large, but as soon as we look at it, we panic. We panic at the sight of blood, and think it has to hurt. Now you're aware of it, it damn well hurts.

    It doesn't depend on adrenalin at all, it's a connection from oxygen to your brain, if I do believe so. Cutting off the oxygen to your brain would leave you like a zombie, but you will be able to endure large amounts of physical pain. There are some, mental, side effects to that though, mainly narcassism. Ataraxia is the state where you focus only on pleasure and eliminate the other side of things, meaning suffering, that's what the Greeks thought to believe. You can still achieve that state of mind by putting a bag over your head, but I wouldn't advise it.

    So, it's basically like monks who train themselves not to feel pain. I wish I was a monk. Then I'd be a guy and wouldn't have periods.

    Then again, I haven't really endured large amounts of physical pain because I'm not much into the idea of killing myself.
    I love you, Adam.

    Adrenaline still has a major part in a majorty of subjects connected to pain.

    For instance, say your getting ripped to shreds by a crocodile, Adrenaline kicks in. That's a reason it's there.

    Enoch was right.

    Yeah, adrenalin triggers our reflexes more and lets us belt out of that crocodile pit.

    ahahahahahaha *REPPED*

    (Hopefully you were joking because I would feel terrible if you were serious)

    I popped a blood sack in my knee playing basketball. And its funny that you all talk about not feeling the pain because that hurt like hell. More important then the immediate pain was the fact that I couldnt train for months.

    Oh, and I'll also tear my ACL in the near future. Most likely before I get out of highschool.
