Comments[edit]

Does this article really need the stub tag at the bottom? While it is short, I can't think of more to say about it, unless we wanted to list every usage of the term or something else like that. --zandperl 01:44, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

I'm removing the stub tag because I think that you are correct. -Elizabennet 00:10, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
It really hurts  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.225.226.106 (talk) 21:36, 11 December 2007 (UTC) 
I agree. That's the benefit of having a picture. It makes the concept so much more vivid. Thanks for the feedback. Dr.K. (talk) 22:59, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
I agree about the visual and what is missing is what happens to the body; the side effects of slashed or sliced achilles' tendons? Does it affect stature or the legs? I believe that is what is wrong with me and yes, it does hurt immensely. 67.160.98.63 (talk) 23:23, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, my understanding which could be wrong is that wounding the achilles heal makes someone immobile and unable to defend themselves, therefore open to attack. The article says that it is popularly believed that Achilles died from the wound itself, but I don't think that is the popular belief.96.251.20.191 (talk) 17:50, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Can someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE edit this page. Someone's didn't read it and has added repetition in the origin section. Paragraph one and four are essentially the same! 101.165.118.214 (talk) 07:23, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
