    Interesting thing about that is I've heard most of the damage to that part of the skull resulting from impact behind the head rather than in front of it. I sorta remember a biology class in '99, (been a while, so wait for confirmation), that the teacher explained that many people lose their sense of smell after a minor car accident from impact from the rear. The more recent neocortex region of the head is more jagged and less smooth than the encasing of the brain to the rear, and impact from the rear causes the head to jolt forward, letting the front of the skull sever the olfactory nerves, resulting in a loss of smell following even a minor car accident.

    Of course, my memory may be fuzzy, but that's what I remember him saying.

    Ok, thanks Shinshoryu for injecting some reality into the conversation, b/c people are passing off alot of speculation as fact.

    So, in addition to what you said let me also point out that the brain isn't entirely encased in the cranium. There are openings where nerve bundles travel in and out, eg: the optic nerve, the spinal cord, etc.

    But all of this is minor anyway. The title-holder for worst statement on the thread goes to:

Look at the case of Phineas Gage, who had a 1.25 inch diameter iron pole shot through the front of his brain and survived. Therefore a tiny bone invading the same region of the brain is not going to cause the necessary trauma to instantly kill you.
    Uh.. that's why you know his name over 100 years later, b/c it was a miracle. Much tinier trauma frequently causes death or a myriad of other weird effects. Some rare individuals have survived severe damage to half of their brain, but *many* more die from a single tiny clot. A tiny bone jammed into your brain would very likely be enough to do it.

    But yeah, i agree the move is b.s.

    Damn batman... you're slipping.

    Well if it helps to redeem him any, I remember watching a batman cartoon a looong time ago (like early 1990s) where Alfred sees Bruce and Robin practicing their fighting, out back. Bruce drops the kid to the ground pretty fast. Alfred asks them what they're practicing and Batman responds:
    "Jiu Jitsu!"

    The fact that nobody has refuted the evidence in this thread, must mean that the evidence has been persuasive enough to bust the myth in the minds of the people still believing in it. I'm kind of surprised that no one has presented some freakscanario where it would work, and actually believed it and meant it. Looks like this will be a short thread after all.

    Btw does anyone have some ideas as to how to tell the difference between irony and idiocy? I think I might be enviromentally damaged after encountering countless of morones on the internet(especially in the youtube commentary sections), so that I can no longer tell whether people are being ironic or just plain stupid. I have however learned that people on this forum definitely are the ironic kind:thumbsup:

    If the uppercut to the nose that Ray Mercer gave Francesco Damiani did not send his nose into his brain, then nothing will.

    Just watched "a History of Violence" where Viggio Mortenstein kills some sap with- repeated blows with the heal of the hand to the nose. Get ready for a whole new generation of believers- afer all, it was in the movies, so it must be true!

    - See this will take some time to hash out here. The vast majority of posters balance their posting style between covert humour and outright hostility. You get people like Red Elvis and Askari that will just nail you to the wall but in a loving way. Then you'll get posters like myself, Der and Doc X who will give you just enough rope to hang yourself and then point and laugh. If you're lucky you will never run into Omega on a bad day as you'll most likely spend the rest of the afternoon digging the size 13D out of your ass!

    Hope this helps.

    2 Things,

    I was taught in Marine boot camp back in 1971 that you could not kill someone doing this, but there was a good chance he would wish he was dead and

    Some one should send this to myth busters, I'll bet they could do a pretty good show on it.
