Stood on sea urchin.
If you are stung by the fin spikes of this fish you will either get the shock of your life or you may even die if you have very weak heart, but this fish taste gooooodddd …
I got stung many times but on one occasion it was so painful that I thought someone put a blow torch (full blast) to my palm (was holding it when I got stung) or being electrocuted …

While on holiday on Thasos a girl who my g/f and I had got friendly with slipped and put her hand on one of those black spiny urchins. Fortunately I had some very fine-tipped tweezers with me, just in case, and managed to get them out.Posted 4 years ago
Took about an hour, and there were a few tears, mind. Bloody things are fragile as glass, and really difficult to extract without them breaking up.zippykonaSubscriber

During my uncles insurgency in Malaya he used urchin spines ground into a paste in a Suribachi to poison his guards and make his escape.
Bloody hell, maybe he should have made sure they were cooked all the way through.Posted 4 years ago
I’d be mortified if any of my guests became ill.
Perhaps he should have stuck to a fragranced saffron rice and sauteed vegetables.BustaspokeSubscriber
Years ago I stood on them in the red sea,I couldn’t put any weight on my feet for a couple of days.Got back to the kibbutz a week later,by then I was only limping a bit & was told that my body would reject them a few weeks later.Sure enough a few weeks later my feet started hurting again as the spikes were pushed to the surface of the soles of my feet.I suppose it’s the same process as when your body rejects a splinter.Posted 4 years ago
