What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, but first it will cut you open without painkillers, then it will slice and dice you and take a piece out. Then it will douse you with gasoline, and throw a lit match on you. Then it will sew itself up, again with no painkillers, and slap on a sticky bandage. The bandage will be torn off every day as the wound heals, and doused again with antiseptic.
It finally leaves you with a long scar.
And strong enough to bench press a Buick.
