    :`) i love braniac.

    that looks so gross, but he just stood right back up and acted like it didn`t hurt.
    I bet you any money as soon as the cameras stopped he was crying and holding his hand.

    That`s probably why he doesn`t feel much pain. Evidently the force is spread out between his bones, so that each bone feels about the same amount of force.

    That`s what I think was happening anyway.

    Still impressive.

    I don`t think it`s that painful. Our fist turns into that glob of mess whenever we punch something, be it a brick or a sandbag. What made it look painful was the added cracking sound.

    I dont think his hand becomes rubbery and weak before impact, when he hits the brick, its still nice and firm, which breaks the brick. Its the aftershock that makes it all gross.

    That looked AWESOME. Oooh. I always thought they kept their arms firm. Maybe letting your fingers loose helps dissipate the pain. No wonder I could never break anything, and it still hurt like poo.

    They do this stuff all of the time, so no, it doesn`t really hurt anymore. They have deadened their nerves, and have built up huge deposits of calcium inside of the spongy tissue of their bones.

    Maybe they don`t tense up their hands and arms when they slam into it. Maybe it`s the whole "A tree doesn`t bend against the wind" thing. As to say, if you go with it, you have much better chances of breaking through, than if you resisted and got all uppity.

    I hope I am clear enough... o_O;

    Being able to chop bricks is impressive indeed, but I bet virtually everyone could do it if taught how. I more look at these videos to get proof of what humans are capable, and almost always is it Asians that have developed the techniques... I truly think Asia is the supreme continent. After all, the venerable Buddha came from India.

    Only his fingers get all wobbly. The point of impact when doing a hand break like that is the hard part of your hand just past your wrist. You don`t see the actual impact point in the video which I`m sure does not have such dramatic looking wobbliness.

    If it hasnt been said, this is why it gives before your hand does, when he strikes the brick, his hand is loose, and not tensed up, where as the brick is. the shock gets absorbed in your hand, whereas the brick cant absorb impact and starts to crack and break, which it does. If he tensed his hand on impact instead of kept it loose, his hand would have shattered.
