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!

I guess his mate was thinking about the boat being a possible danger to others.

Excellent training video. So much wrong on so many levels and, unusually, all caught on camera.

Ofcourse, that's fine! Hopefully one day it will come back round to him and he will realise how stupid he was

Guys! Go easy on him! In Dutch he says he put his camera on and forgot his killcord. He himself states he's very stupid and normally never forgets.

He'll probably never forgets again
