When I was a kid, a bunch of neighborhood boys had a silly roshambo challenge. They kicked each other in the crotch to see who was the toughest, the idea being whoever could withstand the most pain deserved to be in charge.

When I joined in one day, they were all shocked over how many hits I could take. I took over twice as many hits as their toughest boy. They all thought I was so tough, I got to boss them around all summer!
