Origin:

In the 19th century, when a soldier had to be operated by doctors without any anesthetics, he was given a bullet to bite so as to tolerate the pain. Biting the soft lead of the bullet let the soldier withstand the pain. It prevented the soldier form screaming.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on
    the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people
    consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people can take a signal. Will probably be
    back to get more. Thanks
