Charles Darwin liked to freak out his friends—for science. Guests visiting the famed naturalist in 1868 were shown a set of "ghoulish" photos of a guy being prodded in the face with an electrical current. Darwin then asked his guests-cum-guinea pigs to describe the emotion displayed in each photo. Now scientists are recreating the experiment.
