This Chain Reaction Of 150 Mousetraps Is A Lesson In Pain (VIDEO)

Every good experiment starts with a question and a hypohethesis. That's the scientific method! So here's to The Slow Mo Guys for posing this important question:

Question: On a scale of "ow" to "OWWWWWW," just how painful would it be for a human arm to come into contact with a chain reaction of 150 mousetraps?

Hypothesis: It would be pretty painful.


Just check out the video above (top) to see the whole procedure in super slow-motion.
