Horizontally or vertically? You mean your wrists never move?

They like how it looks I suppose. As long as they aren't pressing too hard I guess they don't worry about hitting something. And anyway, when you do it don't you kind of wish you would hit one sometimes? I only do it on my hips, though, so I can't really say.

I believe it all started with the fact that it is meant to cut open an artery or vein. Then it goes onto the movie and other media, so most people intuitively do it horizontally. TV teach us everything. Plus, it is an easier and more natural angle to do. After all, STOP IT!! Go grab a stack of paper, write "NO CUTTING" for a hundred times, nice and bold, and tape it everywhere you can see. Go bite your pencil or your nail. Go skydiving or bungee jumping. Go to Six Flags. Go get a MD, and cut as your heart desired!! (I mean, with patients' consent and proper procedures)

Cutting vertically is worse. You're veins don't run horizontal ... they run vertical. Cutting horizontal cuts more veins and artery's, but it's a smaller cut. If you cut vertical, and you cut a main vein or artery, you cut a bigger hole. And a bigger hole in the wrong vein or artery could kill you.
