    facepalm! instant kill!

    Myth. The nose, being made of cartillage, will absorb a blow. A strong enough impact (as in baseball bat to the face or head-on car crash; I have doubts about whether or not a human being could generate that level of force unaided) could splinter the skull around the nasal cavity and propel the shards brainward(wait, brainward?) , but I wouldn't worry about your skull imploding the first time somebody pops you in the nose, nor should you count on being able to drop a charging assailant with a palm heel of your own.

      One of my friends told me about these and the first time i heard it nah it wot work because our nasal bones are soft thats why we can bend it a little . Ill believe this myth if we live in an alternate universe where our nasal bones has the same chemical composition just like our teeth or shin bone

          it would seem not to make sense from an evolutionary standpoint, to have a deadly spike of bone, poised ready to pierce your brain. for the same reason, i find dim mak to be very unlikely. it would be like having a bunch of "off switches" all over your body. just getting a massage or having sex would be like russian roullette

            I was told that the way to make the "nose-brain embolism" effective, was to smash down on the bridge of the nose first, breaking and dislodging the nasal bones. Then, when you palm heel upwards, the dislodged bones can enter the frontal lobe.

            Does it work? I dunno, it is all theory and conjecture. I do know this: if you smash downward on the bridge of someone's nose, then palm heel the crap out of the bottom of their nose, it won't matter if their nasal bones penetrate the skull cavity. You will find it is a quick way to teach someone the error of their ways.

              It's BS. Plain and simple.

              The nasal bone, that is the spur of bone the nasal cartilage attaches to, if broken, would enter the sinus cavities, not the brain. This would be incredibly painful, and would most likely case a fair amount of bleeding. Add to this the increase in sinus pressure and you have a very bad day.

              However, it's a far cry from fatal.

                If you can bend your nose bone you better start drinking milk now.

                  I'm with saint on this one.

                  But seriously...if you can find the bone in this picture that would pierce the brain, you're a better man than I.

                    The bit that really does it for me with that image - they felt that medical trained professionals would need to have the word 'UP' on the top of the X-ray.

                    For some reason, this has utterly obliterated any faith in the medical practice at all.....

                    But the 'instant death' by palm strike to nose is (as per shown on x-ray) a large amount of male genital expulsions (WANK by any other name).

                    After all, we've had millions of years of evolution - do you REALLY think natural selection would leave us vulnerable to such an obvious attack?

                      You guys are idiots. Hitting the nose upward has a nearly 100% kill rate.*

                        This is correct. You can break the spur with a downward blow, but the spur itself is far to small to penetrate the brain cavity.

                        The human body is tougher than most people realize.
                        Shut the hell up and train.

                          That's why t3h_d34dly uses groin attacks, eye gouges and palmstrikes to the nose!

                          ...oh wait...

                            Standard protocol. Imagine if it were something like a hand.

                            We are built to withstand attacks that come down (e.g. how untrained people or other apes fight) better than attacks that come up. Our thick foreheads, brow ridges and recessed eyes are pretty good for attacks that come down. Attacks that come up tend to hit the jaw and throat. Uppercut, anyone?

                            I'm also thinking that a blow that comes down is going to glance off the nose better than a blow coming up, based on it's shape.

                              I think this looks pretty realistic to what happens. The guy gets his nose crushed in and is still living (before being shot).
