Well, I suppose that's one way to get around LA traffic.
Arborist Cuts Top Off 100-Foot Palm Tree, Rides Resulting CatapuIt Like A Cowboy

This is a video of a professional arborist (read: with the appropriate safety equipment) in San Bernadino, California cutting the top off a 100-foot palm tree that was being removed to reduce its risk of falling on something in the area, and riding the makeshift catapult like a seasoned cowboy with no fear of being launched directly into the next life. Clearly *dons 10-gallon hat, quick-draws and shoots finger pistol, blows smoke from barrel* this was not his first rodeo.
