(stupid thread #3,527) - cutting that dangling thing in the back of your throat

Has anyone ever done, or thought about, taking a large pair of sissors and cutting that dangling thing that hangs in the back of your throat (the "uvula"), just to see if it would hurt?

Maybe it's just me, but I don't need to cut a body part just to see if it'll hurt.

Just like I don't jump off of buildings just to be sure gravity works.

I had a growth on the end of my uvula. Doctors cut it out when they took my tonsils and adnoids out in the 4th grade.

I heard they can cut that thing off to help stop snoring. Any truth to that?

So there actually exist parts of the human body that are immune to pain by means of cutting? Do scientists know about this? You need to ask someone, this could be a huge break through for the human body!!!

*don't go to work this week, i'm afraid if someone doesn't say this i'll hear about it on the news later on probably started by "10 people at ..... had to be hospitalized after a coworker removed their uvulas"

Well actually, you can cut pieces of the brain out without there being pain, because the brain doesn't have any nerve endings. And since the brain is a part of the human body, I'd hold off calling the scientists.

"Has it ever dawned on you that it may be your uvula?"

"Gee, no! I must have stupidly glossed right over my uvula!"

Don't forget to set up the camera and record the actual snipping.

Technically you can cut your hair and fingernails/toenails without pain as well.

Yes and yes.

That said, I think there are nerve endings in the uvula. I've heard (third or fourth hand) that uvula piercings can be quite painful.
