  1. GS News - Violent Video Games can Ease Pain - GameSpot.com

    After playing violent video games, test subjects were able to hold their hands immersed in ice water an average of 65% longer than before exposure to violent video games.

    Also, children in a burn ward in Seattle have been subjected to a virtual world of a snowy landscape, and exploring this virtual world while bandages were changed reduced their perceived pain.
     
  2. The researchers at Kiel have also found that cursing increases your pain tolerance. So when you hit your hand with the hammer, swear away, and when the wife complains, tell her it's therapeutic.
     
  3. The guys down in Dachau also discovered that if you submerse a prisoner into a vat of 2 degree celsius water for 60 minutes he will also feel no pain afterwards.
