Massive Crowd Cracks Their Knuckles At The Same Time And It’s Haunting
| Last updated
Have you ever wondered what it might sound like if a lot of people cracked their knuckles at the same time? Well wonder no more because a massive group has done just that.
Cracking your knuckles is one of those things that is either extremely satisfying or horribly unnerving. There's no in between sadly.
Well, if you're in that latter category then you would have hated to have been in the room when a YouTuber commanded everyone to crack their bones at the same time.
Swaggersouls can be seen on a table, along with other YouTubers Toby, Fitz, McCreamy and Zuckles, in front of a large group of people and ensured the room was deathly silent before the cracking. The noise of the combined snap, crackle and pop is absolutely haunting.
People on Reddit were both shocked and horrified by the noise, with one person writing: "I didn't know that I needed this. Maybe I'm weird but I loved the sound in the vid and it made me crack all my knucks."
Another added: "I had to crack my knuckles after this."
A third said: "Would be great if they didn't all start yelling in the middle of it. I'm extremely unsatisfied."
We've all been told about the potential dangers of cracking your knuckles repeatedly, with some people saying that it can cause early onset arthritis.
But the act of cracking your joints is simply gas bubbles that have been displaced popping. It's pretty much harmless and is called cavitation - chiropractors use these sort of techniques to help improve movement in backs and necks.
However, you still have to be a little bit careful.
A post on Harvard's website reads: "Although there have been occasional reports of dislocations or tendon injuries from overly vigorous knuckle cracking, such problems seem very much to be the exception and not the rule."
Interestingly, a doctor sought out to prove whether it was harmful and came back with some interesting results. He did a study on himself where he would only crack the joints and knuckles of one hand and left the other alone.
A cheeky x-ray proved that there was no damage or arthritis done to the hand that endured the cracking all his life and that certainly is enough proof for us to keep on crackin'.
