The White Pages arguably has no purpose in today’s digitally connected world — so why not sacrifice it to the demi-god Heracles in a display of bicep-flexing masculinity? Lifehacker favourite Sam Tucker explains how it’s done.

In the past, YouTube comedian Sam Tucker has shown us how to fake playing the piano (twice!) as well as the art of using a banana as a stylus.

In his latest How To video, Tucker shows off how to rip a phone book in half with your bare hands (or should that be bear hands?) Check it out in the clip above. (Thanks to Lifehacker reader Sam for the heads up!)

Also, once you’ve eviscerated this paper-based relic, be sure to opt out of receiving future telephone directories — this post explains the various ways to get your delivery cancelled, with varying levels of success.
