Did You Say Woods?

How bored would you have to be to willingly jump onto a trampoline covered with 1,000 mouse traps? Maybe as bored as this guy, who shot a slow motion video of himself doing just that?

Yup, looks pretty friggin painful. Something you probably don’t ever want to experience in your life – not even once! So, let’s just make sure you don’t get that bored this week. Here are some places to turn if you feel yourself start itching for that mousetrap sting.
