Lost bet, duct taped to moving car

2017 Reader Submission
Pending Acceptance

It's been a short while, and I did not see this story getting submitted... so I will submit this proud story that happened in my hometown.

Apparently, someone has made a bet, and lost. The term for losing the bet is to tape himself _outside_ of a car, and then having the car driven on one of the Houston freeway - with the speed of 50 mph.

I suspect that whoever made this bet is "wise" enough - but even "wiser" to stick with the words, rather than just getting laughed at. Apparently, saving face is more important than his own safety. And the partners in crime are not much different. Especially considering the driving style, clearly shown in the video.

Let's just say, I'm glad that blood is not spilled on Houston's freeway on that day.

Absolutely unbelievable. These idiots are definitely running on borrowed time as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for the link to the youtube video. The news article link got truncated, so for the other mods: http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Houston-man-duct-tapes-himself-to-car-and-drives-11052708.php
