Some people should not own a tractor, let alone operate it!
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Funny and scary at the same time. Have to believe that some of these folks were injured. Good lessons on what not to do.

I kept saying OMG OMG as dumb things came to tragic endings. Then as the videos progressed, a sense of sadness overcame me as these people senselessly ruined good farm equipment for the "sport" of it. I don't get it.

But for sure, I came away with a heightened sense that care and safety are of prime importance when on the Cub.

I liked the last one in the parking lot where the (spoiler alert) well dressed lady gets out of the cab.

Some of those are pretty funny, but some looked like there were serious injuries or maybe even death involved.
