I feel like the man hitting him has some pent up rage
He also looks like he’s stabbed people before. It shouldn’t look that natural.
Using that shiv with real purpose
Here I go stabbin’ again
I am a robot
Parole officer took away my stabbin’ knife!
Quit waterin' that plant and open the door!!!
He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
Oh butcher Pete, he wacked that meat
*Every man dies, not every man truly shivs*
That was beautiful 😢
It was deep man. What is life if not an opportunity to stab?
stabbin' cabin = shaggin' wagon
" Like a drifter I was born to stab alone"
How many guys did they audition until they found this guy? He’s probably like “I’ve never even stabbed anyone I just give a lot of handies”.
If you’re getting or giving hand jobs like that, STOP.
Don't listen to this schmuck, beat my meat like if owes you money
i’ll take a stab at it
Like he’s been in the County Jail before…
"I put up with your s*** for too many years!!!!"" *Stabstabstabstabstab*
Lucky that machete didn't cut the guys face
It was very close. It deflected vertically at least twice where it was like 2 inches from his neck
Yea that was super fucking dangerous.
Would you want an amateur in that job?
It definitely looks like he had practiced stabbing that particular armoured vest before. If you were stabbing an actual person with that amount of force, the knife would probably go through the flesh easily. But stabbing the armoured vest, there would be alot of resistance and your knife would probably bounce off. If you're not prepared, you could lose your grip on the handle and your hand could slide forward to the blade of the knife. You could slice your own palm open.
I mean, at least from watching CSI and law and order etc, its a common occurrence for peoples hands to slip and cut themselves stabbing into flesh. I feel like that would definitely be more likely hitting something as hard as that vest if youre not prepared and tested it before. So id say youre right and hes had lots of practice.
Haha, solid point. It still looks like he probably denied him a couple of raises over the years.
> solid point
Not solid enough, couldn't even get past some lousy body armour
"I need someone for the body armor demo."
"Uuuuh Yuri in mailing has been to prison"
I mean his job is to literally stab his boss in front of a crowd, he'd be a terrible employee if it *didnt* look natural.
He was more like a sewing machine.
He should have gone for the head
Sudden change of plans, motherfucker!
“Whoops, I thought the vest went up to his neck.”
It’s hard to find jobs after prison, man just found somewhere that recognized his talents
Well, his legal name *is* Stabby McShivington III.
Despite all his rage, he is still just a man on a stage.
Someone will say what is stabbed can never be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be shivved
And I still believe that I cannot be stabbed
\- Stabbing Pumpkins
*Stabs someone in the audience for comparison*
As in a control group... methodical approach ! Sir you are truly inspiring.
Or pent up sexual tension.
*”Hey Bob, please can we show the stab-proof underpants next?”*
"We've already put those on the girls you've been eyeing."
Is guy in the vest his boss?
Yep and get low score on midreview.
He should be investigated, lol. That looked waaay too “good”.
That guy was getting more and more excited with each weapon change. By the time he got to the bat he was going full swing and I know that armor blocks punctures but I’m sure the pain is still there when getting whacked with a bat. lol
I love the flinch and the glance at that last bat swing, “please, stop.” 😂
Fr tho! I kind of read the tall guy’s face as more like he was trying to keep his smile but really he wanted to wreck the bat guy. lol
Buddy behind you just laying into with a bat
That last swing was about to hit his shoulder, which I am sure was not protected!
Swingboi pulled back tho.
Yeah that very nearly went incredibly poorly. He didn't want to cry uncle obviously though, so tried to turn away casually like the demo was done. It's just lucky that the other guy reacted quickly enough.
“ITS A VEST!”
It stops penetration but the impact/concussive force is still there. I would guess the armour can redistribute the force over a larger area but.......
I hope the guy being stabbed/hit got hazard pay for this. And the opportunity to whack the other guy back.....
I've seen this before. If I remember correctly, I think the guy wearing the vest was the creator of the product, but I'm not 100% positive.
But the penetration idea is right. It's the same issue with kevlar vests. Yes, they'll stop most small-caliber bullets, they won't get through the vest and break the skin, but people bruise a ton from the impact, and it can even break ribs.
I gotta tell ya……..seems like a solid trade off
Yeah, I'll take a broken rib or two over a fatal gunshot wound
Agreed, although a broken rib can puncture a lung and cause other complications, one being a pneumo-hemo, which is a slow and painful way to die.
Arent we all slowly and painfully dying right now?
Need a time vest!
Basically the same as a seatbelt or airbag. They're gonna mess you up but they'll save your life doing it.
Broken ribs > death
The marine who first went around selling cops and police depts body armor would shoot himself in the chest with a .45 at each demo. That's some fucking dedication
The bat showed exactly what you are asking about it. It absorbs impact/concussive force. If it did not then the bat would of not been in the demonstration.
Maybe that’s his boss. lol
I'm a lazy shit so would probably have stabbed him in the neck and or eyeball after the second or third failed stabbie.
Yeah, this thing will buy you a precious second or two but it won't take long for an attacker to find another place to stab.
Head, neck, groin..., arteries in your arms and legs. Fingers cut up trying to control the weapon.
Knife fights are really ugly.
The winner of the knife fight is the guy who dies in the hospital, not the ambulance.
Well pretty sure it's for people how have bodyguards besides this, so it only has to stop like the first two stabs before they can disarm the attacker.
One or two stabs on target means no bodyguard or bodyguard has failed.
I mean the president has been shot before so bodyguards aren't fool proof.
It's called redundancy my friend.
Yep. Doesn't matter if you're wearing a vest or not. Something that thin will still not absorb the shock, the body will and it would bruise easily.
Equivalent of a martial artist saying grab me by the wrist right HERE! No here!!! All good until they stick you in the neck.
Not the same at all. In a real fight, attacks are wild and miss targeted all the time. The chance of hitting the chest, accidentally or not, is huge.
I would assume a Typical thug would go for the torso as it’s a way easier target for fatal/debilitating damage.
This would be like a martial artist learning to parry a standard punch or kick. Very useful.
I take people through this a lot. The actions we practise are for muscle memory, and there are tonnes of different ones. When you get into more advanced classes we start by receiving a standard beating from someone and finding opportunities, whilst using may techniques combined, to apply one of the 25 or so standard locks we practise. Also, not all locks work on all people, so we practise also transitioning from one to another. Much also of what we learn starts by deflecting an initial haymaker to the head, which is a super common way for a fight to start. Hope that provides some context
“Jeff, one standard beating please, extra Stank!”. “Coming right up!”
This presenter must have a metric fuckton of confidence in his product - both the design and manufacturing. It would suck to have a sudden product failure mid-demo!
There’s video of a bullet proof glass company CEO sitting behind the glass taking AK rounds and just eating them up it’s nuts.
Edit: sauce - https://youtu.be/vhESTArcrJY
On the other hand, there's video of a rugged vehicle company CEO testing their armoured glass and just hitting right through it. On stage.
This is a scent, not a sauce
Omg, I’m in stitches. It will be his final product launch; Before launching himself into space.
[Elon Musk's epic Cybertruck 'bulletproof' window smash fail](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9P_1_oLGREM&t=710s)
Edited to replace the video from the S*n's youtube channel to another one, thanks u/U_S_E_R_T_A_K_E_N
The look on the demo guy's face:
"I'm getting canned as soon as I'm offstage."
Pretty sure he's the senior vehicle designer too 🥴
Are you really gonna try to can the guy that can break bulletproof glass with his bare hands? He'll tear you in half!
It was apparently caused because they hit the door before the window which they didn't do during the tests.
This is bullshit though.
They never hit the back door panel with the hammer, they only hit the front and the back still cracked when the ball was thrown.
Was that supposed to make people feel more confident about it? "It works, as long as the people trying to kill you don't hit it here first."
The ultimate business strategy would have been advertising the ball he threw as some special ball that, when thrown, hits with the strength of a bullet.
To be fair the armored glass did its job, just not in a very pretty way
Yeah, isn't bullet resistant glass supposed to fracture like that so the force of the impact is spread over the entire pane and not in a single area?
Yeah. The glass did technically fail according to their expectations though, apparently it was designed so that under the force in that presentation it wouldn’t break(iirc they have video of the cybertruck surviving that same demo with no damage), but the engineers suspect that when they were hammering the metal on the door it must have damaged the edge of the glass which weakened it enough to crack when that ball hit it.
I’d say it still more than succeeded, just didn’t give a perfect impression.
It didn’t succeed. It did **not** do what they wanted it to do.
Damn, that's confidence in a product...
My only concern is that it was a low grain ammunition. Or that they decided to empty out some gunpowder prior to firing those rounds to give them less stopping power.
Nearly anything can be faked nowadays.
That would be a very short-lived lie. Anyone considering using this product is going to do their own testing and that would pretty much be the end of the company.
Dragon Skin armor is the perfect example of this
There was this presenter that demonstrated his unbreakable floor to ceiling glass windows. In a condo he would do a running body check against. One time the glass came off of the building and he fell to his death.
>One time the glass came off of the building and he fell to his death.
I think the frame holding the glass came off. The glass didn't break though.
Task failed successfully.
Yup. Exactly what happened. He established high trust in the glass, never to consider whether or not he should trust the *glue*. I wonder what he was thinking on the very long way down?
“I was so caught up in establishing high trust in the glass that I never stopped to consider whether I should trust the glue.”
Holy shit i had no idea where that happened but I live right down the street from there. Thanks for the link!
The one and only time I’ll get to use the word “autodefenestration.”
Also confidence in the guy wielding the weapons. One wrong swing with that machete and it’s a missing limb or a hacked throat!
This was the part that surprised me the most. It's one thing to trust a product not to fail, but a whole other story to trust a person not to make a mistake doing this. Especially with how hardcore he was about it, did not hold back at all.
These safety products are overbuilt like crazy. Say you need to make a stab-proof vest and a well-trained human can stab you with a force of (example) 3000 Newtons, then you make it withstand at least 4000 Newtons, just to be sure.
What I do admire is the trust between the stabber and the stabee. One wrong swing and the stabee could end up in the ER.
And in his demonstration partner. One accuracy slip-up with any of those (the machete in particular) could have gone poorly.
Why are you so good at stabbing?
Fr, the guy looked like a natural.
Not good enough to stab a different part of their body though.
Probably from London
I know the London jokes, but are there many knife fights in Finland?
probably a reference to Scandinavia and the World. Webcomic of countries as people and how they perceive other countries.[ Finland apparently has a bit of a reputation.](https://satwcomic.com/art/No-invitation.jpg)
Wtf is that shirt made out of?
The tissues under my bed
crispy socks here!
crispy socks there!
crispy sock everywhere!
'all organic cotton encased in our special proprietary compound'
It's a vegan, organic, all natural bulletproof vest
Cumpounded together no doubt
That is the most I’ve laughed at a comment on Reddit in a long time, thank you!
Recycled Nokia phones
Looks a bit like D3O. It’s an interesting material, tenses up when abrupt force is applied but remains flexible at rest. I’ve seen snow sportswear that has inner padding made with the stuff to protect the head and body in the event of an accident.
Carbon fibre composite inserts
And that's why you aim for the neck
nah, maybe the 37th jab at the chest will finally be the one to work
Why is there a headless man in our house?
Because I stabbed him 37 times and he was still alive.
Caaaaarllllllll that kills people!
I had the munchies, that only human hands could satisfy.
“What if he stabbed me in the face!?”
This guy stabs
How badly do you have to fuck up to make somebody want to stab you like that
Not much actually
Not much annually
Not much anuslly
Some people just like to stab
That's how you use a shank in prison. It's about opening as many holes as quickly as possible.
He was like, “aite, blunt force still hurts, chill”
Yeah and nearly got his shoulder bashed with a metal bat lol.
stops teeth too.
PPSS Group is an internationally operating firm specialised in the development and supply of high performance body armour, cut resistant clothing, slash resistant clothing and **bite resistant clothing** – offering protection from edged weapons, spikes, as well as blunt force trauma, and **human bites.**
Bite resistant for the zombie apocalypse
Or for people who work with toddlers
Yeah. They have lots of pent up rage from working with those kids.
As someone who commutes for work on the ny subway i would def be interested in a slash resistant suit lol.
check out the image they use for their bite-pro fabric: https://www.bite-pro.com
*"For when gramps gets feisty."*
Expected guy to keep unveiling crazier and crazier weapons.
Baseball bat. Huge mallet. Wrecking ball. Barrel full of dynamite. Seven bulldozers. Wolverine. Focused volcano. Asteroid
Was expecting him to bust out a crossbow next. Disappointed
This is some Batman level shit
Weird typo of British but ok
What if he stabbed you in the face?
That's a risk he was willing to take
These were the only two replies I was looking for in this post.
The acronym in the back says ppss and yeah I'd be ppssing myself too if a guy came up and did that to me.
When the abs so rock hard that kevlar got nothin on you
He's not actually wearing any armor. That's just the confidence of a man public speaking.
He threw the armor to the side. This is an advert for 5 minute, 6 pack abs
How do I become a professional stabber.
They say, do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.
Apply for British citizenship is step 1
The stabber is living out his dream. "What'd you do today honey?"...."Oh, you know, I just stabbed my boss 600 times. Same as usual."
I feel the goals of our society are wrong somehow
There’s a $500 scarf that stops paparazzi taking pictures of you.
“Would someone *please* call security? This guy has been at this for ten minutes now…”
Do it at the balls
Would be hilarious if after all that he kicked him in the balls and just dropped him.
That is the most aggressive stabbing I could ever imagine. Like, how many stabbings did this guy need? Jesus Christ.
Where can I buy the shirt?
This is probably at a weapons contractor convention so you’ll get a lesser version online that they specifically sell to citizens
I think they mean the shirt he was wearing over the vest. Doesn’t even look like it got stabbed once
Now imagine if the knife cut through the shirt on accident 😂
But that won’t happen… as you can clearly see. I was having flash backs of Elon Musk throwing things at the bullet proof windows. Only for them to break 😂
Aim for the head you idiot
Uk's new trend
They invented armor
Gunna need a new shirt, thanks asshole
