Iron Skull

The act is getting hit on the head with a sledgehammer while holding a big rock to soften the blow? Yes, that's the act.

Today we'd primarily see this act as the cause of traumatic brain injury and ultimately leading to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is a progressive brain condition that's thought to be caused by repeated blows to the head and repeated episodes of concussion. Ultimately CTE causes memory and cognitive issues such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, and depression.
