    Honestly this is probably less dangerous than the soccer ball to the head. Pretty sure Dan has permanent brain damage from that.

    Don't care- I wouldn't do it, no matter how many subs. At least Dan got a Gavin nose joke in this ep. You rock Dan and at least this isnt another piece of glass in the finger or grenade throw!

    I'm not sure if this is doable, but how about breaking a femur covered in ballistic gel to make it look like an actual leg? I've never broken a bone, and I'd like to see what that actually means.

      thought you were going to ask them to break a femur when I began reading lol

      edit: their currently-in-use femur

    what a psycho would ask for that?!

    It wasn't very spectacular for the pain it probably caused. The spittle splash was cool to behold, though.


    Why don't you blow up an explosive barrel by shooting it (with a fire arrow ... yeah that sounds nice).

    or simply show us a bolt from that awesome crossbow penetrating differen materials (metall, wood, glass ...)

    I learned to do this at Coney Island Sideshow School! One of my favorite things to do is pull a mousetrap out of my pocket and show people this. The reactions are always so great! :D

    I thought the jaw's muscles were the strongest.

      "strongest" is used to define the force in can aplie/the size of the muscle. the real strongest ,muscle is the quadriceps (if it's the good term in english (i'm french canadian))

      (Just a disclaimer in advance: I do not have any medical or biological education, my area of expertice would be Computer Science. I can however give you a rundown of the answer as it was given to me when I asked a fried [whom has an education (is close to getting it at least) relevant to the topic])

      Someone else made a comment that pointed to the problem with this question.

      Define strong:

      If you mean the muscle capable of exerting the most pressure then yes the masseter muscle (jaw) would be the strongest (this one's my personal favourite)

      If you on the other hand are referring to which muscle does the highest amount of work in your body then your heart is the winner (unless you happen to be so unfortunate that you are not circulating any blood through your body of course [at which point the question of the strongest muscle is rendered moot])

      As for the largest muscle: that would be your ass (gluteus maximus)

      I can't recall the argument for the rectus femoris(it's in your quads) but there was some reason people considered it as the answer as well.


      TL;DR: There are loads of strong muscles and no one seems to agree what we mean by "strongest"

    My god Dan you are one brave man for doing that. I laughed at the end of the video so don't get me wrong it was a very good video. But I was cringing for you all before that, that looked incredibly painful in slow-mo.

    How quickly that mousetrap closed, even at 2,000 fps, was crazy. I'm surprised Dan's tongue didn't get even more messed up than it did.

      Can't agree more, you can tell how much the tension was getting to him. It made me wish he wasn't doing it.
