How much pressure does it take to crush the human head?

I need to know how much pressure it takes to crush the average human head, including hair, brains, skull and all. I also need to know if a person, say like a professional weight lifter, could produce this pressure with their own two hands.

What do you think?

Are you thinking of 'doing in' someone?

This might prove a tad difficult to test, but I'll have a try.



ADVERISEMENT

Volunteers required for scientific experiment.

No experience required, but you must be in possesion of a head.

Well, as the old ad. used to say,

"If you want to get ahead, get a hat."

or was it,

"If you want to get a hat, get a head."

I can never remember.
