Well I just once and for all wanted to get rid of the lethal-blow-to-the-nosebone myth, after seeing that people actually still believe this to be true, in the "Help me end this f@$king argument about 'deadly' vital point striking" -thread. And I'm only talking about the myth that, a blow to the nosebone can cause the nosebone to break loose and rocket up into your brain, because any blow to the head might be lethal under specific circumstances.
This thread's objective is only to enlighten those of you that believe everything they see on tv(i.e. those of you that probably has seen "The Last Boyscout" one time to many - and don't get me wrong, Bruce Willis rocks!). The rest of you can pat yourself on the head.
Some of you might say; "Dude, I've heard of this bloke who got kicked in the nose who freaking died because his nosebone got jammed up into his brain!". Well, then I'll say; "Get real retard! It was the blow to the head that killed him, and not the nosebone that got shoved up into his brain part!".
You can of course die if you stick something long, sharp, and pointy up your nose, because there is a very thin plate that seperates the brain from the nose, but then I would just suggest that you'd stop playing with your chopsticks. Anyhow...
Here is probably the best article on the subject I could find after 5 min of googeling: http://www.fightingarts.com/reading/article.php?id=511
(If you feel that the source or article is untrustworthy or any anything like that, then do some research of your own bitch!)
P.S. I hope this post isn't too aggresive for a firsttimer noobie-thread.
