The Science of Breaking a Bottle With Your Bare Hands

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 6, 2016


Breaking a bottle with your bare hands isn’t a remotely good idea. Even if you have experience breaking bottles with a punch, you could seriously hurt yourself, and even permanently damage your hand.

The reason it happens is because of science, not because you have magical powers.
