i know, i know. this place is becoming deadliest warrior central. deal with it!
i meant to do this like, way long ago but havent had a chance to. so remember the yakuza vs mafia episode of ‘deadliest warrior? remember the tasty angry asian guy demonstrating the yakuza’s weapons and tactics? his name is zero kazama, and he’s totally in love with me. i know this because he came by and checked out my review of the episode and thankfully left a comment, which made stalking him waaaay easier. i ended up @ his blog and found that he had a LOT to say about the outcome of that episode. he brought up some great points that id never really considered, some of which i will share with u.
he als has some great stills of the assaults that poor Joe Torso must deal with on a weekly basis. im gonna throw one in here just because.
-first good point: have u ever actually looked at the numbers they put up after having declared a winner of each battle? yeah, me neither. two things ppl are quick to trust in this world without question: doctors and computers. i always assumed that the numbers wld make sense but, at least in this episode, they dont. example: they have the bat killing MORE people than the yakuza’s pistol (wtf?) and only two less than the grenade (??!). yeah. unlikely.
-second good point: for some reason they dont use the same test settings for each comparable instrument. why not? wldnt u get more accurate results that way?
-third good point: they never account for defensive moves or counter attacks. like sure, an ice pick can kill u if u sit still and wait for it to be slid into ur spine, but what if u move out of the way? tiny bit more difficult.
and so on and so forth. zero REALLY picks apart like, every aspect of the show; its a very interesting read. if u like the show and are interested in this nerd shit, go check it out!!
also, a fun fact! the shaolin monk that will be plucking the freakin eyeballs out of his enemy in tonight’s episode (shaolin monk vs maori, tonite at 10 on spike tv!!)? that’s zero’s roommate.
if ever there was a house that you SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO ROB under any circumstances, theirs is it.
