NOTE: This is obviously an unfortunate accident and I have no details on
what nor when this happened.

issues also anywhere and accidents (due to either) also may happen anywhere
at anytime to anyone, unfortunately.
As with all my videos on this channel, this was just one of those videos
that I got through email.
In 2008 it was still common practice to send videos instead of linking to
To fight this trend, I would usually upload to Youtube the received video
and then pass along just the link to friends instead of re-sending the
