Whatever you do, don’t do this.
Video uploaded to YouTube in 2015 that is still getting a lot of love on the internet shows an older man with a lot of free time on his hands punching a bear trap and getting away with it. Which is insane, my anxiety went off the roof after watching this.
Whose idea of a fun time is this? This guy right here, with all of his fingers intact. The quickness is still there, we’ll give him that, he’s like a Jedi. As soon as his swift jab landed he was out of there in a heartbeat. Do you think he has practiced this before, or was it just pure dumb luck?
It should be obvious, but we’ll say it anyway: do not try this at home.
