To be fair if he didn't move it then it would've been fine.
@BigJohnson86, it went through the block
@Evil Troy, he leans it back. The experiment is meant to show the displacement of force. So if you hit the cinder block the board underneath will spread the force over a wide area on your body so it won't really hurt. But because he barely nicks the block so it hits him in the junk.
When a teacher gets tenure and finally takes revenge on all those little sh*ts
@Blue Shirted Guy, good joke, but unfortunately this happened at a highschool instead of a college. Still, wish I was there for this demo– I was in his AP physics class two years before this incident, and all other demos went off without incident.
@PB2, what was the story for this one?
@PB2, Did he get in trouble with the school after this incident? (If you know)
@LT PUNK ROCKET, well, he used to have the school's VP assist him with the demonstration, but said VP left the school that year. No idea who he had assist him, but it was that guy's first time running the demo, and he missed the swing pretty badly (he's supposed to hit the center of the cinderblock). Dunno if he got in trouble for this, but I doubt it. Mr. Walters took the event in stride.
At least it wasnt with the other end of the axe
He's not having kids
@Under The Gloves , he's not having sex
@Under The Gloves , he is not a he, it's a she
@poopnuggets, Now he's a she
Wheres the rest of the video?
And just like that, Glen became Glenda…
It hurts to look at...
Thank god it wasn't blade first
That one kid in the back who wasn't looking
Maybe I'm missing something; I break CMU blocks all the time when I'm trying not to.
Why did none of the other students say "hey maybe this is a bad idea that could end with that kid getting seriously injured and you getting fired"
@Jebodeiasque, They didn't say anything cause they want upvotes.
@Jebodeiasque, it happened at Westview Highschool in Beaverton Oregon. The teacher on the ground, Mr. Walters does this experiment every year, for each of his AP Physics classes, and this is the only time an injury occurred. It also happened the year after the former vice principle (the fellow who used to be Walter's assistant) left the school, and this was there first time doing the demo together.
@PB2, What was the purpose of this experiment? That an axe can break a cement block?
@Jolee Bindo, you can't really tell from the gif, but the board the cinderblock is resting on has nail on the other side. Its a demonstration of how surface area affects pressure, as even though there is so much force essentially driving a mini bed of nails into his stomach, but due to how much surface area there is, he remains (mostly) unharmed.
This is why I don't trust schools or teachers....
That wasn't an accident. He was secretly sleeping with the teacher's daughter
Sounds like an easy A in that class for the semester to me.
Please tell me the cement block doesnt hit him in the face
Always be stupid horizontally bruh ALWAYS
And that's the story of how Jason never had to get a job after college.
@Psyknis, and could bang without worry of kids
@Capt Fabulous , no but the guy in #278008, now he might be dead however.
Good thing he has a face shield....
Now do it blade first. 👺
U want sum fuk?
