Posted:i was talking about the hood, and not the door..

i mean, it would be kinda difficult to reach the hood release inside the car, with your fingers jammed in the hood....

just a very scary thought i had today.. and wanted an answer, *just in case*

Posted:I recon I would shout one hell of a lot of abuse very loudly before managing to free my fingers, hell it isnt actually gonna lock down with your fingers in there!

Then I would roll a strong spliff - just for medicinal purposes of course

As for the leatherman comment here is a piccy of what happened to my leatherman (swiss tool made by the swiss army knife people) while trying to fix my poi at Glastonbury. I dont have superhuman strength or anything (well at least no the last time I checked anyway! ) and the damn thing just broke in my hands


Got to send it back soon see if they will refund, if not
