You are saying a dropped sharp knife isn’t going to cut your foot? Not buying it.
Not me, physics! And it needs a certain magnitude of velocity (speed) to gain the necessary magnitude of momentum to cut through skin. That velocity can’t be achieved just by falling from 100-150 centimetres. And the drag will only slow it down even more.As momentum=mass x velocity
I would not bet my toes on your calculations.
@Nightroads watched a guy cut his hand catching a falling knife@exitseven nor my fingers!
@loves2learn The only reason that happened is because he accelerated his hand towards the knife, so that would increase the knife’s relative velocity with respect to his hand, and hence, he cut his hand.Just don’t kick your foot or punch your hand into the knife, and you’ll be just fine
Still sounds suss. I’ll back away from falling knives still thankyouverymuch.
Don’t worry! I’m not going to make you to the subject for my experiment😂But @Nightroads himself also said that you will be fine if you don’t move, so there you go the guy told you from experience.
@loves2learn But hey, an important point, there are some exceptions to this, if the knife is identical to a 10kg machette then that is an exceptional. That would surely cut through you.So it depends on how heavy the knife is, but normal knives shouldn’t cause any real damage
The dude went for it while it hit the floor handle down literally push his hand down onto a knife.
@loves2learn See? @Nightroads too says he rammed his hand into the knife. So it knife collides into your hand but you don’t collide your hand into the knife, you’ll be fine
Sounds very dangerous
Not just lucky... my instinctive reaction when I drop something sharp is to back away from it... let it hit the floor... then I'll pick it up.
Yikes! How long did it take to heal?
I ended up in A&E (the UK equivalent of ER) because I'd lost so much blood. I can't remember exactly how long it bled for but I was told if the wound hadn't of congealed when it did, any longer I would have needed a blood transfusion.
Oh my! Glad you are ok.
Thank you L2L, I appreciate that, and I forgot to wish you a happy Thanksgiving.. (I forget because we don't celebrate it here)
Thank you! :)
As a Massage Therapist, I've learned it's better to keep all your fingers- they come in handy (no pun intended).
Yikes! Glad you were ok!
A concussion or contusion? Lol
A concussion I think, I just slipped when I backed up haha. What's a contusion again?
Oh no. Slipped and hit your head after you dropped a knife? Contusion is like a blunt force injury like if the knife handle hit your foot and left a bruise.
Playing with fire! 🔥🔪
It's either that or I look at it in disappointment
@JosyJosy be careful miss josy, in the end there is only one miss josy in this world and we don't wanna lose her, stay safe 😌
I like to call it a good catch.
