If option b is more your style, check out this slick little video from our friends over at Man Hacks, who show you how to escape from flex cuffs using nothing but a shoelace and some elbow grease.

Man Hacks is a small video production team dedicated to “reviving the art of man skills.” Not surprisingly, it’s run by two combat vets: Logan Stark, a former Marine Corps scout sniper, and Jeff Kirkham, who served 28 years in the Army Green Berets.

Every week, Man Hacks will release a different video demonstrating how to do something manly, like wolf down buffalo wings in a single bite or make a hasty tourniquet. Check out their Facebook page here.
