Fact Check

What is del?

The del was proposed in the 1940s by James Hardy, a physiologist at Cornell University. He developed the scale to measure the pain of childbirth, and he estimated that the pain of a kick to the testicles was equivalent to 10 dels. However, the del was never officially adopted, and there is no scientific consensus on how to measure pain. Also, a research paper showed the unit of measuring pain is ‘dol’ which is measured using a dolorimeter.

Does kicking a man’s testis produce pain of 9000 dels?

No. There is no evidence that proves that kicking a man’s testis produces pain of 9000 dels. A del is a unit of pain measurement that is never officially adopted, and there is no evidence that a kick to the testicles would produce such pain.

The concept of del has never been proven or accepted. The Harvard Medical School has developed a 10-point pain scale to analyze the severity of pain. 0 means no pain whereas 10 means extreme pain. This scale is often used by doctors and other healthcare professionals to document and monitor the extent of pain and prescribe treatment accordingly. However, even this method does not seem efficient enough because the extent of pain can be at different rates on the same value

In fact, the pain of a kick to the testicles is likely to vary depending on the individual and the severity of the kick. Some men may experience excruciating pain, while others may only experience mild discomfort. There is no way to know for sure how much pain a man would experience from a kick to the testicles without actually kicking him.

So, while a kick to the testicles can certainly be painful, it is unlikely to produce pain of 9000 dels. Pain is a highly subjective experience, and its perception can vary significantly among individuals. The intensity of pain can depend on various factors, including an individual’s pain tolerance, the force of the impact, and other personal factors. However, it is generally agreed upon that a direct blow to the testicles can cause intense pain.

The unit of measurement ‘dels’ being referred to is not a recognized standard for quantifying pain. It is not a widely accepted or used scale in the medical or scientific community. Therefore, it is not possible to determine whether kicking a man’s testicles would produce a pain level of 9000 dels or any specific numerical value.
