Listen up all you young chess nerds and geeks out there. It is safer just to stick to chess even if you have a small chance of playing against Mr McCracken. I know you want to impress the ladies and look cool but your brains and life are more valuable than pursuing those dangerous risky endeavours.

To be athletic, acrobatic, ok. But to RELY on everything working out as planned, or death? That is really forcing G-ds hand to never fail your self image of being perfect.
For this reason, we must never put ourselves in situations of absolute danger, but should have more respect.
Dangerous athletics is a pure gamble on ones life.
