Wow is that dangerous! A glitch is software, hardware, taller rider, heavier rider, loose bolt, etc could have killed that guy so quickly. At around the 6 second mark that guy would have had the top of his head ground off if he was just a bit taller.

After 5 empty testruns, I would dare to try it too.
As long as it's a static program, without control loops etc.
