  2. Damn. The video stopped just before the winner took the loser's arm and beat him over the head with it.

  7. The anabolic steroids these guys take allows the muscle to grow large than the support structure can handle; and SNAP! It's the same with any other machine. Oh yeah yeah, they never take steroids, I know, their bodies are big because they work out...sure what ever.

  8. Uh, no thanks. Don't need to see that.

    As a side note, I know a guy who broke his arm while arm wrestling. And he was tall and lanky--not a steroid boy.

  9. Actually, brittle bones are a sign of possibly severe health problems. He needs a thorough checkup.

  14. I'm not watching this video... though the "can't look away" phenomon made me tempted.

    Commenting to say that my lanky-arse cousin broke his arm very, very badly a few years ago arm wrestling in some kind of drunken stupidity. Arm wrestle at your own risk...
