I was bitten by a scorpion two years ago in my backyard and aside from hurting as if fifteen bees stung the same spot at once, and my foot growing to the size of a hoof for a few days, it wasn't life threatening. My daughter still talks about the day I came in the back door hopping on one foot, swearing, crying and laughing at the same time.
PS: I hope Roger Clemens gets bit by a scorpian while pitching in Puerto Rico this winter. (disclaimer: if scorpions are not native to PR (I'm very ignorant to the native species of PR, subsitute with one of the following: wolverine, vampire bat, honey badger, the spider on Greg Brady while visiting Hawaii, Box jellyfish, Harvester ants or whatever else hurts, stings and/or poisons).
