What's with the sledgehammer part?
« on: February 06, 2012, 12:20:11 AM »
I just got this short not too long ago on one of my Rifftrax Shorts Shopping Sprees, and this one part bugs me. When the guy's slamming a metal peg with a hammer, he gets hit by something with enough force that it punctures his chest. What exactly happened there?

A piece from the head of the metal spike.

Wow, I didn't even realise it'd be possible to hit yourself with a chipped-off piece of metal at such a speed that it pierces your chest. Shows how much I know about workplace safety!

Check out this workplace safety video:

Oh dear God, why am I watching this?!  :speechless: That was both hilarious and disturbing.

My favorite part has got to be when the pressurized canister went flying at that one guy's head, he ducked it, and it crashed through the window and hit the guy in the office in the head. Yes, the dangers of desk jobs, graphically depicted

Something similar happened to me once and I got a small piece of metal stuck in my thumb, but I couldn't get it out.  It came out mostly on it's own a year later.

"We had our crack sniper shoot Glen to prove a point about safety."

Seriously though, I could never figure out what the hell happened there, either. I guess now I know.
