Calvin Coolidge, who was noted for being taciturn, was approached at a Washington DC party (inauguration iirc) by a woman who came up to him and said "I just bet my friend over there that I could get you to say three words."
His reply...................."You lose"
You guys just sprung a memory about 20+ years ago. Dad driving the pulling car, similar attachment and me in the getting towed car. He makes a turn and the steering wheel was still locked ie key not turned. Boy that was a long wtf second or two as he just kept pulling me...
Back when I was married, my father in-law was from the Philippines. He needed a tow for his Escort wagon. I asked if he knew how to tow, he said yes. I drove my classic '69 Chevy short bed with a 10' chain and hooked him up. The man couldn't use his brakes to slow me. He ran over the chain at a light. One guy got out and jumped in the drivers seat and finished the 7 mile chain tow. That guy was good. He kept the chain taught and made it feel like there wasn't even another vehicle back there. My father in-law would say he could do anything. I once watched him wrap a sink feed line with duct tape...didn't even slow the leak down. Anyhow, reality doesn't always reside in some peoples skulls, much like the guy in this video.
