 Scorpions and alcohol

i heard a tale today that if you put a drop of alcohol on a scorp...it will sting itself to death...is this true?...are they not immune to their own venom?...it sounds awfully hokey to me

i have to ask this, curiousity is killing me.
Why would you want to know if this is true or not, its a cruel thing to do either way.

Amen to that!

Since I canít resist....think about it, alcohol is an acid, it burns and yes, it would burn the skin of a scorpion.

I think what we should test is whether or not putting alcohol on an open wound of the person who *first* got curious enough to try such a thing with a scorpion....and see if that person would go nuts and want to sting themselves to death.
Oh, and as an after thought, scorpions are immune to their own venom....they canít really sting themselves to death.
