David Straitjacket (his real name, no spelling error) is a professional performer in the UK. He does straightjacket (again, no spelling error) escapes and unicycling*. I am not sure if he combines the two, last time I looked at his website <http://www.straitjacketcircus.co.uk> he didn’t.

Some of the more forgiving dictionaries permit this as a variation, but the
word is straitjacket.

Strait = A position of difficulty, perplexity, distress, or need.

Thanks, I should have checked that. Most people wrote straightjacket
and it struck me as odd that his name was slightly off.

Growing enough wheat for a 1-pound loaf of bread requires 2 tons of water.

I have heard of a guy doing this act before on a unicycle. He would have 2 people help him onto the unicycle ride arround in a circle (didnt know how to idle at the time) an escape then run full speed into a wall. It sounded like a really cool act and I hope to meet the guy (dont know his name) this summer.
