Also, folks like the cheap alternative, and what is more cheap than Dim Mak?
Its usually cheaper to get semi-skilled or unskilled labour to do a job with a machine than it is to get a master craftsman to do it by hand, wouldn't you say?
Why pay someone a lot of money to do something elegantly when you could pay someone else much less money to do it crudely.
Even if Dim Mak were real (which, like you I seriously doubt), I dont think it would be routinely used as a mode of execution.
But I do agree that there should be some documented case of its use though, in the course of a crime, an assasination perhaps, or even a training accident or two at a Dim Mak dojo! (And there doesn't seem to be any such documentation.)
