    How can you have absolute faith in something that only works on 40% of people? I’m not a genius at math but these odds are even worse than getting heads on a coin-toss. Would you really want to risk life or limb with something that is more likely to fail than to actually work? Man, I’m even sceptical about pressure-points (they only work on certain people, certainly not on me) let alone this mumbo-jumbo. I agree this is purely psychological: if you firmly believe in something than your body will be affected by it and this is clearly the case with his students. Funny he mentioned this stuff is least likely to work on trained athletes: so this technique will be even less useful when faced with the most dangerous opponents? Jee, I’m impressed.

    I don’t get this ‘medical professional’: it is entirely possible for the heartrate to go up on its own. It’s called extreme fear or panic and it can be entirely self-induced and without actual injury or real danger. People with arachnafobia are likely to faint on the mere sighting of a spider, apparantly there also exists a condition which maybe called dim-mak fobia.

    Hi Zara, I should have probably filed this one under humor as it has lightened my mood everytime I revisit it. :)

    Yeah, along with your post on the preacher’s rantings. That was pretty funny too.
