I ain't got time for little piggies.

Picture it: Brock "The Python" McMacho, three-time MMA middle-weight champion, retired Navy SEAL and two-time recipient of the Purple Heart, blearily stumbles to the bathroom in the middle of the night. He stubs his toe. Does it hurt? Does it hurt as much as it would hurt me, a big softie?

I'm no tough guy. When I stub my toe, or get a paper cut, or burn myself on a hot piece of toast, I whimper like a puppy made of kittens.
I expect that a Navy SEAL or other macho (or "feminacho
") type person is trained to work through the pains they encounter. But does that mean a super-tough tough guy doesn't want to just die then and there when he stubs his pinky toe into the dresser at 3:27 in the morning?
Does it hurt? Does it not hurt? Does it hurt, but they just don't react?
I've often wondered, but I know no tough guys/gals I can ask. I'm surrounded by nerds. Nerds, I say, nerds everywhere!
