Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Are Aikido joint locks harmful to children?
@TheWudangKid: Indeed. I was pretty sure I would be on the right side of that but as this site is still in beta, everyone could have decided that any form of medical question is off topic. I am glad that this is not the case.

comment Are Aikido joint locks harmful to children?
I hope this does not break the asking for medical advise as I am not asking for advise, I am asking for medical research. However, this might break the "asking for reference material" which tends to be frowned upon. It works well as a skeptic question. Not sure if it fits here...

@gorilly: can you edit your answer with the evidence you provide in the comment. Comments are ephemeral and will be deleted. Although, only the age division is evidence, the rest is anecdotal which is not evidence.

Any evidence to support your claims? We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

comment Slashing vs thrusting (bladed weapon vs pointed weapon)
@Fildor: Do you have a reference for that? As far as I know, pila were used in the early Roman Republic well before they had any contact with the Germaic tribes. Now, pila were indeed partly designed to penetrate shields but those were more the standard hoplite ones that were in wide use all over the Mediterranean at the time.
