What kind of trap?

Depends. Trapped in a pit with Daniel Craig... I wouldn't do a damn thing.

Oh! Theres a poll!
Id have to say... spring myself in an attempt to stay whole.... then if that doesn't work. Ask Haskins to chew through the chains. ;)

Honey, you forgot to put the toys away again.

it'd depend on who I thought had trapped me and for what purpose. if I thought my only way to live was to get away asap, I'd do everything I could, including mangling my foot, to get out. but if I thought I'd have a better chance of escape later, with all parts intact, I'd wait it out.
if there was no 'who' and I had just stumbled in some animal trap in the woods, surely they check those every day or two to prevent predators from stealing the catch, I think I'd try to minimize bleeding and maximize safety and wait it out.

See, Dev? You and me, we're right here. Great minds and all that...

See, Dev? You and me, we're right here. Great minds and all that...Kelly too. I see that she came up with an organic, no fail form of birth control, peeing and crying. Sure to stop any man dead in his tracks.

lie down and wait for natural forces to do their work?I would have preferred an option about being on top.

unless he's into that.

unless he's into that.True. So Kelly's a bit of a gambler, then. Unless she's into that, too.

while i can admire the unflagging optimism of those who selected option 4, it's worth considering that the longer one is immobilized, the more susceptible one is to natural forces—the elements, predators, etc.

not to mention that the pain and loss of blood would render one progressively more incapable of summoning either the mental or physical strength to free oneself.

So.... you're not going to chew through the chains?

what would you do?
Wait for Obama to rescue me, then sue the government and the makers of the trap?


What do I win?

Devil Ledbetter

Chewing off one's foot also entails pain and blood loss, no?

Exactly... not to mention that you'd pass out from the pain and blood loss. So.... maybe wait it out, and holler if a hunter stops by.

the difference would be time, would it not?

time is often the most precious commodity of all.

and perhaps worth a foot.

Great thinking. Rust the trap so it is easily broken. You are a survivalist.

Especially if I could catch it in a makeshift cup for drinking later. This is acceptable in emergency situations. Bear Grylls said so.

But, if it was me, I'd pull out my cell phone and call for help

There you go. This is the technological age. Everybody (well almost everybody) carries a cell phone with them. Call for help.

I had no choice but to choose #4.

Sadly, I'm not a contortionist.

I am unable to get my foot anywhere near my mouth.

If I could, I'd never leave the house.

Are you sure about that? Really, really, really sure?

Eh.

Sadly, I can't give 1/2 rep points so in this case I'll round down.

How come nobody thought to pry the trap open? Whoever set it has to be able to do that. It's either tied to a tree or to a stake in the ground. Untie it, hobble away. If it's an elephant trap, the foot is gone anyway. Pee on it, stop the bleeding and hobble away.

My foot is an integral part of my body. Last option. But more realistically, I'll just lie down waiting for death. I'll kill anyone who rescue me but not my foot.

I find it interesting that nobody has any faith in the supernatural. =P

Me, I'd sell my story to the public, have it turned into a movie, and use the funds that I have thus obtained to hire [insert ridiculous celebrity name here] to come and free me.

Those were the MacGuyver episodes you never saw--all the ones in which his diabolically clever escape plan hinged on him peeing on someone/something.

I'd break (or open) the trap while cursing Haskins for putting it there. Then I'd find out where he lived.

I'm not sure how much confidence I have in my ability to chew my foot off, so I'm going with option 4.

I'd call the police on my cell phone, and request that they bring the jaws of life or something comparable to dislodge my foot.

Shadow_Ferret
03-10-2008, 09:46 PM
Well, it's actually a multiple choice answer.

First I'd try to summon the superman within and pry open the jaws.

Then, failing that, I'd sit and wait to see if help was forthcoming.

Then, seeing that that failed, I'd gnaw off my leg, hobble to a hospital, and hope that they can sew it back on.

Then, once I was safe and secure at home, I'd curse the gods for having put me in that situation in the first place.

I'd faint and be eaten by bears.

If they started at the trapped foot, sweeeet.
