the wonderful thing about the palm strike to the chin/nose/forehead, on an upright opponent is that it gets his head back ,breaking his balance making any throw a lot easier to accomplish8 years till retirement.

I like palm striks too. Especially to the ear and chin etc. One concern I have that may be just theoretical is the fact the the median nerve is located in approximatly the same area. It is deeply buried. However I saw a patient one who fell on a piece of glass and severed the nerve resulting in some very significant disability to his hand. I wonder if you went to strike someone in the nose and their mouth was open whether you could strike their upper incisors instead resulting in a cut. I have never seen that and it just a theoretical concern. The median nerve feeds a majority of the intrinsic muscles of the hand including the thumb. Destruction of that nerve could result in the person becoming significantly impaired in grasping objects, tight grip etc.

Hmmm other than the double slap to the ears cliché the only thing I can think of is a double palm strike to the head to break the jaw. One palm hits the side of the jaw while the other hits the side of the head.

How aboutr a double palm strike to lung points....The way I understand these they are just up and to the outside on the pectoral muscle almost where the shoulder joins the chest... I think this is a strong strike combination (both don't hit exactly the same time)
