If Death Race was so easy, well known and a fast working magicians method. Would you dare try such an escape?


The issue really comes down to: are we talking about one's escape skills or about one's penchant for recklessness.

Would I attempt to escape from chain shackles like the type employed within 10 seconds?

No reason why not; it's a simple escape requiring no real skill.

Would I deliberately let a speeding car run at me while I stand up against a junker full of dynamite (shackled or unshackled)?

No, I have more common sense than that. To me there's a difference between courage (which has a responsible purpose) and bravado (which simply seeks pointless glory for its own sake).


Are you saying that Steve Baker has no common sense? Could you please define just what an escape artist is and in what fashion one should perform in? Pointless glory? Or standing out and having no equals!!!!

Hi Dr Midnight, you have a great way of explaining things.

I know of one escape artist that wasn't in control of his escape and allowed gasoline to be used instead of kerosine, he got burnt really bad.
(by the word 'allowed", I mean because he wasn't in control he by default, let it happen)
Not being in control doesn't make a good escape artist.

I have seen two die attempting that.
But it was their own fault. They didnt do tests, they didnt use physics.
Cement is not light, nor is dirt. Most coffins crack once fully burried.
This stunt escape attempt is very dangerous, so much can go wrong.

Lol, good one.

Same goes for The stanely cup, or big futbal (soccer) games.
Those crowds are dangerous. I have been to a couple of the soccer games where the crowds and teams turned bad.

I don't know about you, but I would like to see someone tie a noose around their neck, jump of a small, maybe 5 or 6 story building, and get out of the noose just in time to land on one of those giant, inflatable things they use for movie effects.

It would be REALLY cool if they did it handcuffed...

There are methods by which the described stunt could be done.

David Copperfield did an escape from a straight jacket, upside down, while the ropes that were supporting him were on fire, and there were flaming spikes below him. Personally, I find that one to look much more dangerous.


You mean that stunt IS dangerous? Oh Crap!! I'm doing that escape next month...on September 8th. Guess I better practice. LOL. I'm kidding. It does have SOME element of danger to it..a little.

BTW...I AM performing this in September. Wish me luck. Luck not for completing the escape, but wish me luck for living with my wife for the next month as she continues to beg me not to do it. LOL
