So apparently there are tons of self defense scams involving using transcendental energy to Dragon Ball Z your way out of a fight, but that’s tl;dr for another time. A video going viral among skeptics over at reddit showcases one such scam and I have to admit, it was ridiculously engaging to watch.
The story goes that a group of skeptics attended a demonstration organized in Barcelona (Spain) for EFO, or “Empty Force.” Basically, a “master” of EFO is capable of incapacitating any attacker with psychic energy and the most sloth-like of all movements.
Grown-ass men wound up on their backs with invisible weights on their chests and it was all very impressive, except for one curiosity. Apparently, EFO is completely ineffective against flabby, out-of-shape skeptics.
