A Houdini? No, How About A Faildini!
I am somewhat a fan of magic and some of the stunts magicians pull. Like how in the world does Chris Angel do some of the things he does? It's truly amazing to try and figure out how exactly tricks and magic work. How many times do you have to fail and injure yourself to get it right? It's one of those cases where it's best to let them try it and if they work that's a pretty awesome trick, well in this guys case, what were you thinking?
How stupid really are you to tie yourself to a car and try and get out of shackles just in time? In this case he wasn't given very much time at all to react. Could it have been the drivers fault for taking off too soon? Either way it's an extremely risky trick and hope you are not dumb enough to try anything like this.
