January 15, 2014

Australia has a problem with alcohol and violence. Yet another teenager died this week after being King Hit. According to Forensic Toxicologist, Dr Jennifer Pilgrim, in an article titled Australia, we need to talk about alcohol in The Guardian this week

‘ at least 90 young lives have been taken by single hit assaults in Australia since 2000. The overwhelming majority of these involved alcohol and no other drugs.’

While experts argue whether or not Video Games encourage violent behaviour, one fact remains about Hollywood film fight scenes:

This Hollywood Cliché can Kill

Die_Hard_With_A_VenganceLethal_Weapon_4_PosterEvery action hero gets into a fistfight. James Bond, Jason Bourne, Indiana Jones. Then there are all the stars known for their fight scenes. Sylvester Stallone ( Rocky),  Arnold Schwarzenegger (True Lies), Jackie Chan (Any movie), Bruce Willis (Die Hard 1,2, 3 etc), Mel Gibson (Lethal Weapon I, II, III etc), Jean Claude Van Damm (Blood Sport, Street Fighter), Brad Pitt (Fight Club) and so on.

We can work it out. Measurements taken at The University of Manchester have shown that local boxing hero Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton really does live up to his name. (DailyScience)
