Overheard at the Sideshow Gathering 2010
As Steve Hyde and Melanie did their death-defying Bag of Death escape on day 3 of the Sideshow Gathering, I overheard a conversation between a woman and a man sitting behind me.
Person 1: "...and so I ordered ten pizzas for the party and...oh my gosh, that guy is totally trapped in that plastic bag, he's gonna suffocate. I would never want to suffocate. Or drown. I don't want to drown. Anything that involves not breathing. I would rather be hit by a car. Or shot. Or beaten to death. Anything but suffocating, or drowning."
Person 2: "If you get beaten to death, you might drown in your own blood."
Person 1: "Oh my gosh, no, I wouldn't want that. I would want them to beat me in the head so I was unconscious when I died. Anything but suffocating or drowning."
(For the record, Steve Hyde did not die during this escape.)
