It goes back as long as time itself. Being the strongest person in the room...especially when trying to impress that cute girl.

If you have been anywhere on social media the past few years, you've probably seen videos posted of guys tearing whole phone books in half and bending large nails into a U-shape. Those are the two most common ones I've seen.
