There are millions of pain nerves in the body, and when any of them are even slightly disturbed, they flash a pain impulse to the brain. The brain weighs this message, evaluates it in terms of so much pain or discomfort. When a state of tension exists, it causes the brain to overvalue pain impulses --- thus causing you to feel far more uncomfortable than you otherwise would. On the other hand, when you are relaxed, pain messages tend to be evaluated on a much lower scale. Tests show that up to 75 percent of the pain (or disagreeable sensation) which exists when a person is tense vanishes entirely when he relaxes.

There are many ways of putting out a fire. You may have seen people put out burning cigarettes by stepping on them. Stepping on a burning cigarette shuts off the air and puts out the fire. Many fires are put out with water. Water cools the material that is burning. It helps smoother a fire, too. Some of the water is changed into steam when it strikes the hot fire. The steam shots off air from the fire and helps put it out.
Some fires cannot be put out with water. They have to be smothered with sand or with chemicals of some kind, such as those used in some fire extinguishers. Suppose a tank full of gasoline is on fire. Gasoline is lighter than water. If you poured water into the tank of gasoline, the water would sink to the bottom of the tank. The gasoline would float on top of the water and would probably keep on burning. If you keep on putting water on the fire, the gasoline would flow over the edge of the tank. Then the fire would spread.
