“I don’t know. I feel like the board isn’t even that thick? Like, I get that it looks cool or whatever, but we don’t even know if it’s — we don’t know how solid the wood is, is what I’m saying. It could be soft or whatever. Soft wood. And like, the powder on his hands? I just think that if anyone had some time to practice this, like all the free time in the world that this guy has obviously, they’d be able to do it just as well. I’m not that impressed.

    - “There’s an obvious obsolescence for this type of display, proved by thousands of years of technical ingenuity – why not just use a hammer?”

    - “What’s the point of this? Even a modern, supposedly evolved culture is strangely barraged with masculine idiocy, be it war or a half-naked, hairy dude trying to pound nails into a board with his bare hands. What’s the equivalent of this for women? Why isn’t there one?”
