Slow-Motion Footage Of A Shaolin Monk Throwing A Needle Through A Pane Of Glass

February 28, 2018

This is a video from The Slow-Mo Guys of a Shaolin monk throwing a needle through a piece of glass and popping a balloon (previously: the same feat done like seven years ago because Shaolin monks have been doing this since before you were even coordinated enough to thread the eye of a needle, which, FULL DISCLOSURE: I'm still not). Impressive. Now I'm not saying I could definitely do this myself, but I already have and I just don't want to do it again because my mom made me pay to replace the window. "And you used a pool cue." Only because I couldn't find a needle.

Keep going for the video but actual throwing starts at 2:10.

Thanks to Tank, who only knows how to break things one of two ways: rolling over them, or cannons.

    Uh, it never went THROUGH the glass as it bounced off on the side it was thrown from, but it did penetrate it and still seems impressive…

    The slow-mo guys kind of avoid mentioning that it didn't actually go through. They certainly glossed over the fact that it didn't.

    Throw it into a pork belly.

    Dat face at 3:03 got Kanye biting his lip like 'Bama...

    I dunno, "throwing a needle through a piece of glass" seems pretty misleading, I mean, I clearly saw the needle bounce off the glass, not go through it.

    "puncturing glass with a thrown needle," maybe.

    I WANT MY MONEY BACK! Seriously, that homeless dude working the paid parking lot totally scammed me, and now I have a ticket from the parking company. Motherfuckers.

    As if there weren't enough reasons to be afraid of the Chinese... Oh wait... there weren't. Still not. Respect, sure. Fear? I guess it depends who you piss off.

    Now... Let's see a Wushu monk do it... Which, from what I've read, they would do it drunkenly while laughing at you.
