Did Macaulay Culkin crash at this place before he started cleaning up his act?

Normally I don’t swear and don’t like to hear swearing, but I think that was more than justified in this case.

Looking at that I don’t think it’s a very effective trap. The idea is sound but the execution (heh) isn’t. That looks flimsy as hell. You need some force behind the blade, this uses gravity working on a knife and some plastic tubing. Not even a counterweight.

I hope they don’t forget to declare the meth lab when they re-sell it. Otherwise a cagey attorney might get it for half price.

Run if there’s a warning sign at the front door: “Trespassers will be scienced, bitch!”

Maybe something with the mass of an airplane propeller?

I think you’re taking your life in your hands with that stairwell, booby trap or not.

That thing looks sharp and covered with disease. Doesn’t take much force to lose an eye.

I’m skeptical about the triggering mechanism depicted therein. It seems quite as likely that Rupert was told to cut the string above when he heard random stick fumblings below. (yet it should be stated that i’m by nature a creature of abundant doubts)

Why would anyone ever enter a meth house without wearing full chemical PPE? From everything I’ve ever read those are full on toxic waste sites and unprotected exposure for even a short period of time can be bad news.

AND … the guy on the stairs afterwards is, I’m sure, being told there’s more but still takes a step or two up. Possible Darwin candidate?
