How not to tow your Towed

Stumbled across this on Youtube, of a guy towing his truck 4 down, for miles with it in park, or reverse.
Skip to around 5:45 to get to the definition of stupid person, and what he does when he is told about his problem....

Hey...once I hooked up the night before so that I could get an early start. Not my usual routine, so I leisurely forgot to disconnect the driveshaft. When I left in the morning, I pulled off the wet-with-dew asphalt slab and got about 50 feet before I looked back and realized something was not right. No harm, no foul...but I did manage to dig a couple of ruts in the grass behind the slab. Yes...I did feel stupid.

That is not stupid, that is just being forgetful, We all do that.
I bet you did not jump back in, and say you only have a few miles to get home, and take off again, with it still locked up with a smoking destroyed tire.
