Imagine you could travel back in time to 1918 and the Spanish Flu outbreak. World War I was wrapping up and suddenly, everyone was getting sick. Tens of millions died in an event raced across the globe three times in two years.
Life did not look very normal at that time. And I’m sure people felt that it was never going to be like it was before this disease. Or before the War.
Dr. Justin Schmidt is an entomologist. That means he studies bugs. He's got a "thing" for stinging insects. In fact, you may have heard of him. He's the creator of the Schmidt Pain Scale. It measures the pain from biting insects from the mosquito to the bullet ant.
The Schmidt Pain Scale is similar to the Richter Scale for earthquakes. Instead of a 9-point scale like Richter’s, the Schmidt Pain Scale is from 0.1 to 4.0. And like the Richter Scale, every whole-number increase is actually a factor of 10.
