   I was stung by my elegance coral many times, twice the enzyme (or
whatever) broke through my skin and it was major league painful.
My hand was badly swollen and the spot where I was stung was this
hole that ich for a long time and took ~2 months to heal.  I've heard
far worst story of coral stings.  99% of the time, nothing happens, but
when it does, it's a bitch.
