With the seemingly endless top 10 lists, I thought it would be fun to start one for escape artists, I'll get us started.

Top ten WAYS people can tell you're an escape artist:

10) You drop $1,000 on a pair of rusty old handcuffs without flinching at the price.

You ask the assistant in the rope and chain aisle at B+Q if they have a fitting room.

You are inspecting chain at a hardware store and proceed to wrap a length of it around you while asking the attendant, "Does this look secure?"

When watching a Hannibal Lector movie you rewind and replay the bit when he's in the Straitjacket several times.

You have a perfectly true cover story if the police pull you over and demand to know why you're driving round urban areas with a car full of ropes, handcuffs, straps, chains, leg spreaders..

Helen and Don,

Helen, when I was recently pulled over I had a box (100 count) of Moadnocks police ties on my back seat he NEVER once asked why I had them, which I thought he would.

Don,

I've actually asked one sales associate to zip me in a bag.

You lock your keys in your car and you're too embarrased to call the police/ tow service to unlock your car

When you get shut in the steam cabinet at the gym you want to have dramatic music and a big clock counting down.

No 10 on your list has got to be when David Deval couldn`t get out of the Wintergardens toilet (And I couldn`t get in !!!).

When you spend the entire time at an S&M convention thinking, "Yeah, I could get out of that."

You see nothing wrong with getting on the phone and calling around to the local hospitals to see where you can get a good deal on a straitjacket.

When your voicemail message says, "I'm tied up right now, leave a message," and you don't mean you are busy with other stuff...you really ARE tied up.
The only stupid question is the one not asked.

Shawn on the Flex Cuffs Do you think if the Cop Asked what they were do you think you could of gotten away with cable ties. as to Calling the Police of being Locked out the Cops do more Harm Then Good as to the Tow Truck Drivers I'll never trust one. the Best Bet is Calling a LockSmith Might be a Bit Pricey but if you get the Right one they can just fit a key to your door lock without having to go under the car window. to many linkages have been getting Disconneted and windows being Broke because the Tool is to tight. also what did the Sales Associate say/do when you asked her/him to Zip you Up if you were at a Star Trek Convention they Probally would of Beamed you Up. Don,

When you call the costume shop and ask if they sell just the Hannibal mask seperate.

When you take the rubber mask to a leather worker and get a price on 3/16 leather and wrought iron mouth bars...for no special reason just future reference.

The manager at Lowes finds you in the isle with a board behind your back, your arms tied around it with chain and a pencil in your mouth. He takes the pencil from your mouth and you ask him to mark centers on the board wher the chain goes across,while you pull an additional 22' of chain out of the roll.

The fire department hoses down your burn rate test. You wait till they drive around the corner out of sight and light you next one.
...think not that all wisdom is in your school. You may have studied other paths,but, it is important to remember that no matter who you are or where you come from, there is always more to learn.

You ask the guy at the hardware store after wrapping yourself in a nice chain, does this look good on me?

Or, at the Mental Hospital upon finding a straight jacket you like, you ask the attendant, Hows the fit on this? or does this make me look fat?

These are good!

You are watching the news and there is some disaster footage, and you think, "That doesn't look dangerous enough."

We should have them all on *file* in case they *escape* our memories! Having our *pick* of these is *key*!

Yours,

Paul

When someone brings up straightjackets in a conversation the first thing you think is "Regulation or gimmicked?"

When you watch "Cops" you look to see if they put the cuffs on properly. When the crook slips the cuffs you laughy you butt off screaming "I knew it, I just KNEW it!"

I have a friend who's always complaining about "poor bondage" in peril scenes. So another refinement to that one;

When watching thrillers, you think the hero is a wuss for having to knock over the bookshelf, set light to the curtains, break a vase and use one of the shards to cut himself free, all to escape from a simple rope tie.

I remember watching an episode of Alias where Jennifer Garner finds herself trapped in a mental institution in a posey straitjacket with the front and side loops. She snagged the arm strap on something and pulls the arms apart, at least that's what they wanted you to think! I noticed straight away that she had infact snagged not the arm straps but the back strap above it, completely missing the arm strap! I remember telling people and them saying geek, get a life! Oh well
