    Glad you can tell the difference. Could I borrow your microscope?

    Somebody should submit an article "5 Martial Arts Myths You(Probably) Think Are True Thanks to Hollywood" or ask Seanbaby to write it. We could all rough draft it here together. Im pretty sure Seanbaby wrote a similar article last year "how to tell someone isn't a badass" or something like that

    What I have learned from these videos?


    Drunken Boxing>_ing_un and possibly a viable art for MMA.

    I was okay with most of it until, "Bruce Lee was a fighter, not a wordsmith." I thought, "That's exactly the opposite of true," but checked the comments and everybody was busy posting amateur Chuck Norris joke attempts about everybody's favorite B-movie star, so I decided not to go for the all-time Cracked downvote record by saying anything.

    It looks as though the person in the fan photo is wearing a WTF uniform. Making the fan the most dangerous thing in that photo at least...

    Growing up I had a bow and arrow set that seemed to shoot at a similar speed:



    Spoiler:
    Edit: Note that at the stated 160km/hr over 8m the arrows should travel for approx 0.18s. Even at 0.5s, although they seemingly take longer, the actual speed is more like 58km/hr. Or roughly the speed of a punch.

    I thought it was going to be a sarcastic entry BY Seanbaby.

    It wasn't... :<

    I'll give 'em the 100-man Kumite because anything is possible(?) and a little of the drunken style. Broken rhythm + using the shoulder to strike = "drunken" style. Forget the whole idea of intoxication, it's just being a "slippery" opponent, dammit. Also, if someone is motivated enough, they can do damage with whatever they want, be it a fan or a chopstick or a crushed and ripped up Pepsi can.

    I check in daily, and very nearly replied "Go read a fucking Seanbaby entry" to that pile. Just didn't want to deal with the waaaaah today, I'm busy.

That's not just wood she'd be competing against, that's several hundred pounds of solid pressure. I'm sure someone with more of a science background could back me up here, but it's B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T.
    If you read the little 1 inch punch book by DeMile, it says the power is generated by a dynamic dropping motion of the body, something that is impossible to do when laying down. That was my main objection to that scene.

    Seriously? Catching arrows out of the air that are going about the speed of someone lobbing them at you like a Paralympian shot putter in the wrong event?

    Chock full of references to ninja badassery, this article helped my face maintain a look of indignant despair, while giving fat wannabes the chance to fling around their mothers decorative fan with the belief they were wielding the deadly.

    Seanbaby needs to go clear house at cracked.
