ὀδύνη (pain) + μέτρον (measure), or the pain meter: I suppose this is the place to put a little quip or a facile manifesto on what this whole thing is about. To be entirely honest, I have no idea, but I will pretend like I do anyhow. As the etymology of the title would suggest, this blog is to somehow measure pain. Whose pain, what pain, and how is it measured are all still in question.
