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.
As is the result when we smell your breath....

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.
he was breaking solid granite slabs.
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.
Now THAT I would pay to see.
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.
