"Sport Science" is the most awesome show ever
« on: January 31, 2008, 06:30:22 pm »

They want to see if it's possible to send somebody into shock with a shot to the nuts, so they found some "amateur daredevil," who, for $50, would let them measure his heart rate as they use a tennis ball machine to hit him in the gonads at 50 mph (68 lbs. of force).  Ultimately, they want to  know if getting hit in the balls will make his heart rate exceed 180 bpm.  The slow motion shot is AWESOME.  Talk about "must see TV."

The result?  182 bpm.

Now you know.  Need a cardio workout?  Have somebody kick you in the balls.

They say the heart of Rock & Roll is still beating, which is amazing if you consider all the blow it's done over the years.

"The Internet enables pompous blowhards to interact with other pompous blowhards in a big circle jerk of pomposity." - Bill Maher

"The negative aspects of this business, not only will continue to prevail, but will continue to accelerate in madness. Conditions aren't going to get better, because the economics of rock and roll are getting closer and closer to the economics of Big Business America." - Bill Graham
