    Hilarious! I liked the friend's "We tested it properly, honest we did." sort of claptrap. I only hope it ends up on You've Been Framed.

    They tend to shy away from video where folk have died....

    My biggest fear is dying in an embarrassing way.

    Can you imagine the wake? All very hushed and and sober, then, someone starts chuckling, and before you know it, everyones pissing themselves. Nightmare.

    How soon before we have new legislation banning lethal DEATH SLIDES?

    I was building them 30 years ago in the Scouts, there were maximum heights & lengths then Inspections were carried out etc before & during use. We didn't have any serious accidents (a few people intentionally jumping the brake and hitting the tree cartoon stylie were par for the course.).

    Empathy can be sadly lacking here I'm afraid, davie. I've had a verbal spanking for voicing similar thoughts in the past myself.
