    I am not going to put forth the effort refuting you point by point because it would only aid me in becoming just as fucktarded as you.

    His answer, "Iron palm training is no more a shaolin martial art than padwork is a style of boxing".

    As to answer your question, there's Youtube videos of qigong competitions where contestants break wooden boards with their palms, then breaking someone's shin from a block is not that far fetched.
    breaking a board with your palm is nothing special.

    Freak accidents happen. I once got a hairline on my femur when I was pelted by a baseball. It wouldn't have happened if I wasn't first standing on a sheet of ice and landed in the worst possible position.

    My point? Anything is possible, and may even be documented. Doesn't mean the results are typical.

    Theres a clip of a guy with iron palm training who breaks marble boards or something insane like that. I can't remember if it was marble or not but something similar, he doesn't break it first time everytime either so it looks pretty real.

    Why is breaking so hard for people to believe? Breaking is typically not fake. There are breaking competitions on ESPN. People who practice breaking things are good at breaking things.

    This whole thing has given me an idea for breaking demos. Why not break bones? Get those big cow femurs from the butcher and smash them. Seems like a closer analog than a brick or a board.

    That doesn't sound like the worst idea anyone has ever had. Dead bone is (AFAIK, might be remembering wrong) more brittle than living bone - but a fairly fresh bone may provide a reasonable approximation.

    Or how about a whole cow/horse leg? I'm reminded of the sword guys who use carcasses for their test cuts...
