Yeah, I guessed so. I usually get that in my thumb and mouth when re-wiring my electrical wall plugs.
Boit, you REALLY gotta explain why you get pains in your MOUTH while rewiring etc - LOL

As it turns out, the lunar landing was somewhat of a moon hoax. If you ever find yourself bored again, just let me know. I can think of tons of questions that I’d like to ask you. Hmm, now I'm a little suspicious, there may be more boogie men. Yikes!

Makes perfect sense.
You cut the insulation off the cable, fold it back and twist it to make a nice fat blob to put into the hole so the copper screw has something to get its teeth into. The process introduces sharp bits of copper into the fingers .. these bits of copper need to be removed (by a qualified medical practitioner) otherwise they will
(induce hypochondria) inexorably make their way towards the heart where they may cause premature heart failure (and death).
Maybe some people (Boit?) put the cable in their mouth at some stage .. not sure about that bit.

True. I use my teeth to remove (strip) the plastic insulation from the ends of the copper wire. I end up accidentaly chewing of a bit of wise that can get stuck on my tongue, palate gums or lips. It's more irritating if it gets under the tongue.

I have had a similar experience and the pain went away within a day or so. I would suggest that you see a doctor if the pain in your thumb doesn't go away after 24 hours or so. I wish you the best of luck with that!

@ Tranierse. Umer wrote that more than six months ago. We've never had from him since. I hate to imagine what could have happened.
