So, I've been seeing a lot of people(not just on this site) say that because they saw [insert weapon] do [insert injury] to a pig carcass, that means the EXACT same effect will happen to a person. What they don't realize, is just how much weaker the pig is than a man.
You see, there's a little thing called Wolff's Law that dictates that a person's bones that recieve more pressure get stronger. Link:
Now, of course, that doesn't only apply to bones. In fact, the most used example of this is muscles. When you work out, the burning feeling you get is your muscle tissue being destroyed, so it can then rebuild itself stronger.
Farmers, believe it or not, actually try to prevent wolff's law from taking place, because then all the nutrients that would've made for more meat go into the bones. They even do this with the meat, in order to prevent it from being to tough.
So, next time you hear some mall ninja ramble on about how his $20 dollar katana will slice through 4 people because he saw it on deadliest warrior, tell him what's what before he gets himself eviscerated by undead hordes.
