    Wouldn't you think if you were going to do something like that you'd make sure your girth was tight? And if you screwed up on the first go, don't you think you'd sure as heck get it right on the second try?! Crazy!

    Well, I don't think anyone planned on the girth breaking...but I do wonder why the heck they were riding half off the danged horses?

    One of the captions said they were balancing the weight of the guy in the hammock.

    But why the hell were they racing towards a claybank if they were going to fling the guy out of the hammock? What were they going to do, shoot him into the wall?

    And how many 6-packs were involved in the making of this?
