Netizens Enumerate 30 Things That Are Way Worse Than Stepping On A Lego
According to scientists, up to 70K nerve endings are concentrated in the human foot - and about all of them are activated when we step on a Lego brick. This is really damn painful, and humanity should only be grateful to the Danish businessmen that they established their toy brand about the time the Inquisition stopped using torture.
Moreover, we are almost sure that if the International Chamber of Weights and Measures wanted to establish a special unit for painful sensations, then it could well be "one Lego". And yet, according to some people, there are feelings and things that are way more unpleasant.
There is a popular thread in the AskReddit community whose author - apparently "inspired" by a bad stepping - once asked "What's worse than stepping on a Lego?" As of today, the thread has nearly 4K upvotes and over 7.2K comments listing both funny and really tragic stuff.
Bored Panda has put together a list of the most popular opinions from this thread for you. Laughter and tears, comedy and tragedy - feel free to scroll to the very end, and even better - tell us in the comments what else, in your opinion, feels more unpleasant than stepping on a Lego?
