List RulesVote up the places that hurt the most when you have a paper cut or other small cut.

We've all had those cuts that are complete nuisances... the ones you acquire while trying to rip open the plastic packaging on anything from Costco, or the ones you wake up with after a weekend of camping in the woods (though you can't recall how they happened). Something as simple as a paper cut or a snag on a protruding nail can be one of the most annoying injuries to heal, especially if it makes its home on any of the specific body parts listed below. 

The potential cutting locations listed here are results of doing everyday, normal things, which makes these annoying places to get a cut even more annoying. We're talking about avoidable instances that occur during normal, routine events throughout your day; taking out the trash and stubbing your toe; enjoying a delicious sandwich only to bite the inside of your cheek so hard it feels like someone punched you in the stomach; or one second you're cutting tomatoes in the kitchen and the next you're clutching a paper towel around a microscopic cut across your knuckle that will pester you and crack open eight times before it properly heals. 

Any crease or fold on your body automatically makes it onto this list of the worst places to cut yourself. Which place for a cut do you think is the worst? Vote up the worst place to cut yourself - those places that cause the most incredibly annoying nuisances. Think of it this way, if you could forever thwart certain stupid injuries for the rest of your life, which ones would they be?
