OT for sure, Why doen't head butting hurt the butter as much as the buttee

OT for sure, Why doen't head butting hurt the butter as much as the buttee?
In movies lately, men use head butting as a fight technique, usually hitting with their forehead the same spot on the other guy.
Why doesn't this hurt the butter as much as the buttee?
I'd be afraid to do it. I stopped hitting my head against a wall 2 days before they let me out of Bellevue, and this seems almost as bad.
Or is it just movie nonsense.

It is real. The trick is you use the hard part of your skull plate against the soft part of the other guy's face. Usually the intent is to break the nose.

Aha.
So the movies aren't very accurate then. I always see them hit the guy in the same part of his head that the hitter is hitting with, the middle to top of the forehead.
Now they never quite show how to really pick a lock, but that's to prevent people from picking a lock. What are they trying to accomplish by showing head-butting wrong. Are they trying to prevent someone from hurting someone else by making him hurt himself? It won't work.

Wasn't it one of the Lethal Weapon movies where Mel Gibson head-butted someone, and both of them staggered back, stunned?
I seem to recall seeing BOTH parties in a head-butting incident receiving injury in MANY movies, mostly comedies.

I imagine the stunt men do not want a broken nose, so they hit hard point to hard point.

I am assuming that actually hit the other person with the head but about as often as they actually hit them with their fist.

Actually, I have noted that a lot of movies and TV shows have been getting this one right recently (or possibly I just didn't notice before). If you watch carefully, they do seem to be aiming for the nose. Some even make a point of showing the bloody face of the recipient.

I think that has at least as much to do with the fact that any reasonable lock takes longer to pick than most audience members have patience to watch... (At least 30 seconds or so.) Also, there's nothing really to see when someone is picking a lock unless you actually have a camera (or simulation) INSIDE the lock.

I'd chalk it up to Movie Magic.
Just like the season premiere of Law & Order SVU last week...
A suspect decided to kill himself instead if getting arrested, so he hopped into a car and drove it under the side of a tractor trailer. He buried it past the windshield so we'd all know that he was dead.
5 seconds later, as all the detectives were running towards the scene, the car exploded.
Huh? You crumble the hood, shear off the roof and the car explodes?
I doubt it.

No, it does. If you get too much snow on the hood and the hood buckles, that will make it explode too. And if you drive off a cliff, that is if you take all four tires off the road, it will explode long before it hits the ground. It has to do with not releasing the static charges on the tires, so they build up and ignite the gasoline. Never let even 2 tires off the ground.

I see. I wonder if the gravitational pull of the vehicle enters into this at all.
It's obvious that cars create their own gravity because the body falling from the sky never lands *next* to the car, it always lands right on the windshield.
it must be gravity, what else could it be?

I'm sure you're right. I think it's a special kind of gravity called autogravity.
