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

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
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.
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
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?
