    You could be really anal and just tear a really small phone book. You win

    or you could just tear it a tiny bit. you win again

    I doubt there are many people who can tear one properly tbh

    it is a very hard thing to do!!!!

    You need unbelieveable wrist and hand strength. You probably wont be able to do it within the next 12 months if you trainned for it full time

    ****...what is it about alcohol that gives you so much confidence in your ability. i might start getting pissed prior to heavy squat sessions id be like sod it throw another couple of 20's either side.

    could i be re deamed if i could tear a pack of cards?

    A pack of cards would be harder imo.

    Most people who claim to be able to tear the phone book in half usually break the spine of the book over their knee first, you could try this.

    It is entirely possible though (to do it properly). Have a go, you may surprise yourself.
