I hope you don't mind Luke, I have "borrowed" this clip to post elsewhere. A great find, perfect example of why to ALWAYS wear your killcord.

Zapped!...or what!?
Nob!...just as well he didn't go under the Prop!...or the Boat kept going...or he'd hit his head on the way out....or wrapped a leg in the Warp or..ect ect:...Most totally avoidable (especially the danger to others!) by the SIMPLE expediant of wearing his Kill Cord!
