About 34 years ago (shit! really?), I was sitting atop a Mayan temple in Tikal, Guatemala when a scorpion stung my toe. Even before this happened, I was in an altered state of consciousness that got a lot more altered when I was told that the sting of the local scorpions were lethal. It was a hell of an evening, as you can imagine. I've told this story to friends over the years, but I recently told it to Kevin Allison, who produced it for his podcast, Risk! Hope you enjoy it.
