Dumbasses who think a human can have the reflexes to lift a steel sword and slice a minuscule bullet cleanly in two while it is flying towards their face.

There are people who can block bullets with swords... You can probably find someone with a Google search.

You can't block it by reacting to it as soon as it's fired, but if you can predict where it's going & place a sword in its path just before it's fired, you can block the bullet.

Never said the cutting wasn't impossible... Also, in that vid, I don't think the BB's are being shot directly at the guy's face like the bullet in the gif. Really impressive though.

Except, a BB is fired with air, while a bullet is fired from a controlled explosive.

You do realise a bb gun pellet flies at fraction of the speed an actual bullet does?

Dude, its still impressive...

>implying it's easy to swing at a BB pellet going at 20mph

I don't get the phrase "fraction of", 99/100 is a fraction and so is 101/100. I just don't get it.

the term "a fraction of" usually means 25%, a fourth
#73 to #28 - comradewinter ONLINE (04/22/2014) [-]
A fraction would be excaggerated. A BB pistol can easily fire a BB pellet at 100 m/s, while a bullet from a 9mm goes 400, so 1/4. Though speedwise isn't the issue here, it's the metal coated bullet being a little sturdier than a plastic bullet. Not to mention the shape, having a more narrow angle on the rounded end, making it harder to get a clean hit.

The steal katanas are made of is many times stronger than typical steel, and can cut through it.

Also note that heavier projectiles tend to maintain their velocity longer through medias such as air. IE, a heavy metal bullet will maintain its velocity much better than a light plastic BB easily affected by wind and air resistance.

yes, but it still proves that something like that is theoretically possible.
User avatar #60 to #29 - penileburglar (04/22/2014) [-]
Is slicing a bullet theoretically possible? Yes. That's not what his post said, though. His post specifically mentioned doing it on reflex, which is not possible. Neither human sensory processing nor body movement is fast enough to react to a real bullet. He didn't say slicing it wasn't possible, just that a human having the reflexes and speed to lift a sword into place in time is impossible.
User avatar #31 to #29 - batsbak ONLINE (04/22/2014) [-]
It could in theory yes, Mythbuster have succesfully tried it. But for this to work, the sword must already be near the position where the bullet will hit. For when the gun fires from let's say 50m, even with an instant reaction time, the swordsman only has enough time to move his sword an inch before the bullet hits. Now in the gif above the bullet is max 4 meters away and the swordsman still has to unsheath his sword and lift it up. There is no way any human being has the ability to move that fast. But for the slicing of a bullet, yes no doubt that is possible, just VERY inprobable for a human to execute it.

In the video of the bb gun it says he drew his sword before the bullet was fired. Having the foresight to know where the bullet will be is all you need.

Oh, is that all? I mean, there are only a handful of marksmen in the world precise enough to hit the blade of a sword dead-center at any reasonable range when *THEY'RE* aiming the guns, you mean to tell me all I need to do is become a master swordsman *and* an exponentially better marksman than anyone in the world has ever been? Is that all?
User avatar #156 to #62 - mcstorms (04/22/2014) [-]
yeah, glad you understand.
