Survival Tip #71

KO’ed

William_Regal_knocked_out_by_Big_Show

Movies, television, and books have led us to believe it is really easy to knock a person out with a jolt to the head. Riddle me this: If it was so easy, why wouldn’t every boxer win by knock out? People professionally trained to knock people out for a living can’t successfully do it every time they get in the ring. Westerns and fantasy lead us to believe that by smashing someone in the head with the pommel of the sword or butt of a gun they’ll go down like a sack of potatoes, but in reality you’ll probably crack their skull before you knock them out. So, if you need to pacify someone in the Primal Age your best bet is to restrain them, instead of trying to knock them unconscious.
