I had a student take some pictures of me in a chain, and honestly it did not go as well as I'd hoped. The pictures came out poorly, and chain turns out to be difficult to photograph well.

The funny part was that I hadn't set the thing up to be an escape act, just a photo shoot. While the potographer glanced at his pictures, I removed the chain.

His eyes shot out of his head. He hadn't realized I could do that, he thought I was going for the keys on the table to get out. The poor guy stammered and finally got a "how" out of his mouth.

Sometimes I forget how easy it is to surprise an audience even with a simple chain job.

Both are fun if you do it right!

The same thing happened to me shooting a publicity shot for Against the Tide. I was in my full costume and had my wife put me into the chains (brings back memories of that first time at the chapel) as I stood on the rocks with a lot of salt water around me. She got up above on the seawall to shoot at a good angle. A fair number of people stopped to watch. When we had all the shots we needed, I just threw them off so that we could get on our way, and I heard a gasp from the folks watching. I was pretty surprised, but I gave them a victory wave and a big smile.

I was once showing my old Iron Maiden escape apparatus to a guest and went to open it, only to realize I did not have the key to the large Yale Super Pin Tumbler padlock handy.

"No matter." I commented, pulling out my jacknife pick set. With one swipe of the pick the lock fell open and my guest went slack-jawed.

Dr. Lao: "Wise answer."
