Watch a teacher take an axe to the crotch in physics demo gone terribly wrong

No gore. Just a LOT of sore.

MEN, CAN YOU watch this without squirming? Hell, ANYONE – can you watch this without squirming?

This video of a physics demonstration gone horribly wrong went viral after it was posted on Reddit earlier today.

According to the Daily Dot, the teacher was trying to demonstrate the law of inertia by swinging the blunt side of an axe down onto a cement block, which should have exploded with the force.

The teacher (lying under the block) was supposed to feel nothing. Instead, he felt everything. E V E R Y T H I N G.

Redditor haneefmubarak, who claims to be one of the students in the video, tried to explain that the teacher was actually fine after all:

He was just fine – it was a graze, not a full on partitioning. The person holding the axe is a member of staff (either an assistant principal or a hall monitor) that we asked to come help with the demonstration. The teacher walked funny for like a couple of days and then he was just fine.

And yet, we still squirm.
