Meet the Neuropsychologist Who's Also a Master of the Bullwhip

Dr. Jessica Cain of Pepperdine University earned her Ph.D. in psychology at Boston University. But she jokes that, after 12 years of dedicated study, she's got her doctorate in bullwhip.

Indiana Jones makes it look easy. But unlike Dr. Jones, Dr. Cain is real. And she's a master of both neuropsychology and swinging bullwhips around acrobatically.

Cain is so good that she sometimes works as a stuntwoman. She's appeared on the TV series Supah Ninjas in that capacity. In this video, she describes her double life as a scientist and bullwhip master. As she says, "If there’s ever a zombie apocalypse, everyone’s gonna want me on their team."

Zombies do not perceive pain, and have no critical physiology. A whip, for all its frightening appearance, is mostly able to inflict small damage and pain, but is pretty well designed not to do real damage. You need truly destructive weapons to stop them. A bladed polearm, like a naginata or a pole axe, is good when you have a bit of room to work with. A heavy machete is useful for infighting.

Fire is always best, though.
