There are many ways to test bulletproof technology. The classic way is, of course, to actually shoot it. But as a rule, you’re not wearing it and you’re not shooting it point blank at your stomach. WARNING: stupidity and highly NSFW language ahead!

In case you were wondering, bulletproofing will keep the bullet from penetrating your flesh. What it won’t do, however, is absorb all the kinetic energy of the bullet. This guy pretty much just punched himself, very, very hard, in the stomach.
