How did this happen?...why were you bothering it so much that it would sting you 6 times? when is the last time you fed him? is this the first time it happened?

Ditto
Next time, put the prey in the container and let the scorpion hunt like scorpions do.
Thatís a rather foolish reason to be stung. We are unable to hold our hands still enough for a scorpion to NOT mistake them as either food or a preditor.
Generally a scorpion will not sting what it is standing on. For it to have stung you, you must have done something wrong...which you did....by hand feeding it. Holding prey for a scorpion to sting is another not so wise idea because it generally ends up in...well...getting stung because the scorpion isnít sure what the food is, so it attacks everything in the general area.
