Hey!  How 'bout those runaway mag stories?

I'm the only guy I know who's brave enough to grab a Magnetech when it goes
off into high-speed rewind with a 2000' reel of mag, and safely bring it to
a stop without killing myself or ripping the film, all with my bare hands.

I think the last time I did this at Complete, engineer Derrick Billin was in
the machine room, and he complimented me by saying this was the only time in
my life that I ever impressed him.  :-)
