    And it hurts like a mofo.

    Did the whole vinegar thing and removed the spike, but damn.

    Went right through a rubber glove. Best part of all, I was picking up the corals he threw off the reef.

    So... who wants a urchin?

    Maybe a little stint over an open fire will teach him a lesson whilst whispering those choice words :D

    bud, best bet is to use hot water, as hot as your body can handle and hotter, that breaks down the proteins in the poisen from anything ocean based better than ph based like pee or vinagar.

    They nice, beautiful creatures. But they come at a price. Same as picking up a rock and the underside got some nice size bristle worms.
