Hello Eyrie:

<<Chinese wine (like sake - made from rice, but different fermentation agents and process) is not carbonated.

Understood, was hypothesizing perhaps a little ADDED carbonation to the bottle in order to make the explosion so ~dramatic~. Assumed it was likely some type of simple shockwave type transfer...

<<As for the eye trick... note the "padding" on the end - sits nicely over the eye socket....

Saw it too and to me seems insane. Im certain training is required but... yikes. Accidentally injured my eye years ago, it never healed. Cannot conceive being that blase about em ever again....



<<As for throat... there are ways to toughen the connective tissue in that area to withstand some force

Fascia in that area??? Sufficent amount that could be toughened....? The cartiledge certainly isn't that thick, how does this work I love the demonstration, cannot understand how it is achieved, but do like that one.

What are some of the others that are odd/unusual but done, I wonder???
