Whether or not you believe that God created man or that we evolved from apes is irrelevant for this post. Whether created or evolved we have brains that are supposed to allow us to reason and thus distinguish ourselves from animals. However the people in this video have missed the point. Our heads are meant to protect our brains, not to used as blunt objects. As I said the people in this video seem to have missed the point and appear to be trying to use their heads as sledgehammers, bottle openers, etc. basically tools of destruction, a purpose for which it is ill adapted.
All the clips in this video are great examples of human stupidity. Since all of the clips are men it could be more accurate to call it male stupidity. Enjoy the feeling of superiority you get from watching these idiots hurt themselves.
Head Butting a Car
One of my favorite scenes (I put it first) in this video is of the guy trying to break the car window with his head. This model for intelligent thought runs head first into one of the rear passenger windows and bounces off. He then gets up and rethinks his life…no, he tries to break the window several more times using nothing but his head. First off what would possess someone to decide to use their head as a battering ram? Second, when the first attempt failed what would possess someone to then repeat the attempt multiple times on an object designed to take an impact?
I want to clarify my usage of the word clothesline. I don’t mean that piece of rope that people use to hang out their washing to dry. I am using it in its other capacity that of a barrier at about chest height that stops forward movement. This time two guys are holding a flaming board at head height while their friend runs into with his head. Head first into the board, the board which is on fire. Again with the fire. I guess these people aren’t as stupid because they lit the board on fire.
Sign Face Plant
The face is great. It has our eyes, nose, and mouth, all sensitive areas. We use it to convey emotion giving context to our communication. This guy decides to use his face in another capacity. He grabs onto the back of an SUV and rides the SUV face first into a sign. Fortunately, he is only hanging on to the back and falls off when his face hits the sign or he could have done some real damage.
Again the head is a wonderful and essential part of the human body. Millions of dollars are spent every year just on making sure that our heads are protected. We have airbags, bike helmets, and sports helmets. There’s serious money going into protecting our heads. Which doesn’t explain why this guy bashes himself on the head repeatedly with a brick. After a few smacks to the head he apparently falls over unconscious.
I shortened this next clip. It originally started out with the guy explaining his life philosophy. He then slams that board he’s holding into his head multiple times. It is disturbing how many times he slams that board into his head. He even knocks himself to the ground and continues to beat himself with the board. He finally stumbles off saying that he just didn’t believe in himself enough.
There are two guitar smashing clips on this video. These aren’t the typical guitar smashing videos as you should expect from the theme of the blog. There are rockers who are known for smashing their instruments at the end of the show. However, they usually smash the guitar against an amp or the stage. These guys use their heads, literally. The best of the two is the guy who repeatedly smashes the guitar against his head until pieces start flying and he falls down. You can hear a woman’s voice in the background telling him he’s going to have to clean up the mess. I have more sympathy for the owner of the female voice than I do for the guy on the ground. I hope he had a great time cleaning.
I’ve included several clips showing people attempting to break bottles with their heads. I’ve heard that really exceptional karate practitioners can break beer bottles with their hands. I’ve also heard that muy tai practitioners deaden the nerves in their shins by breaking bottles with their shins. Sure they break bottles with their bodies, but they are using their less essential extremities. They aren’t going to turn themselves into vegetables like the people in this video.
Your head is important. We use it to house some sensitive organs, namely our brains. We have better uses for our heads than using them for battering rams or other blunt objects of destruction. Again, have fun with your feeling of superiority, but don’t forget to learn something from these clips.
