Video: Aikido Master performs bamboo breaking trick

I got sidetracked by the German train attack and watching my Indians put a beat-down on the Cubs in GameĀ 4 of the Series, so I couldn’t find something truly “funny” for this Sunday morning. But this video involves an Aikido Master, knives, and quite a bit of skill. Close enough, and cool as _____.

The clip comes from the Science Channel’s Outrageous Acts of Science, a show that analyzes the science behind viral videos from the internet. In this clip, a bamboo rod is suspended by two sheets of paper, held in place by knives, and cracked in half without cutting or tearing the paper.

Watch the video for the explanation.
