If you went back, looked at the physics of velocity, energy and momentum then you will have answered your questions.
I can show you how to STAB and pierce into a raw potato with a common paper....yes PAPER drinking straw.
NOT impossible, when you know how.
Illustrates nicely, on a much smaller scale of course, what I'm talking about.
I suppose you could look at martial artists too, the amazing things they do with their bare hands against materials that should be impervious to flesh

You know, I've seen this claim made on several threads, or ones like it. In theory, it ought to be possible, but in practical terms, theories don't
often hold up--so, please do, show me how to stab a paper drinking straw into a potato--on the first try, as that was how many chances the
"hijackers" had to get it right when piercing those buildings.
It would be great, too if you could fill the straw with kerosene and have the potato turn to powder an hour after the impact, too, but I know that's
asking a little bit much.
And i hate to be the cold voice of reality, but all boards, bricks, and other masonry that martial artists typically strike through have been scored
to allow them to snap from the sudden impact. So you see, illusions are everywhere!
But I appreciate that your focus is on finding the truth, that's what I would like to find out, too. So no derision is intended by my comments.
But if you can pull off the paper straw/potato thing, I would love to see it, and it would make a great youtube video as well!
