So one day I was sitting around, being bored, and I started to wonder about “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Those guys got tied up all the time and managed to wiggle a little and slip out of their bonds. So, naturally, that got me wondering “How hard is it to escape if your feet are tied together?” As it turns out, it’s not that easy. Especially if you used string instead of thick rope – that stuff hurts when it cuts into your ankles. Another interesting fact is that knots in string get too tight to untie after you have spent a half-hour struggling against them. If you do decide to try tying your feet together with string (although I don’t recommend that you do) keep a pair of scissors handy, otherwise you will have to hop to the kitchen, alternately praying for balance and thanking the lord that the scissors are not on a different floor. The icing on this anecdotal cake is that, when I did this, I was seventeen years old and hadn’t seen an episode of “The Dukes of Hazzard” in about ten years.
So, now that I’ve shown you mine, you show me yours. What is your best “it seemed like a good idea at the time” story?
