Actually, I could care less that you wanted to get bit by your fish, what bothers me is the danger that you put the fish in. Imagine not being able to breath, and as others have said, damaging the slime layer on the fish. Hopefully once was enough for you.

Next time you can't think of anything to do, might I suggest you try this?
No fish were hurt during the filming of this video, or any other innocent animals.

Yes, Inga, that would be appropriate--though with higher voltage.

On the original piranha vid. Fish can carry TB and can pass it to humans, along with other diseases or health issues. Not particularly bright to do something like that. But I'm with the others that I'm more concerned over the fish's state.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I hope that you are right but the point is, you couldn't guarantee that going into your little game. It isn't fair to risk the life of an animal for your own silly boredom or... fun.

All these criticisms you fished out because of a silly bet? -_- If I were a smart bettor, I would have bet something less insane than get stitches because of an animal bite. Oh well...That's just me being sensitive to cuts and stitches. If the bet is pig out on a large plate of lasagna and a liter of coke, I'm game.

Anyone wanna bet?!

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
