An experiment to try cracking an 80ft whip met with a painful end.

YouTuber Bryan Ropar, from Irwin, Pennsylvania filmed himself playing with the lash in his garden only to end up cut and bleeding. 

'Hello, today we are going to try and crack an 80ft whip' he announces in a voice over as the clip shows him wielding the impressively long cord.

But the whip is so long when he cracks it the very end of it curls round and smacks him hard on his thigh... but he still doesn't stop.

At first Ropar flicks his arm cautiously and it barely leaves the ground, but he gains confidence and continues with more vigour.

But the whip is so long when he cracks it the very end of it curls round and thwacks the air right next to him, causing him to leap slightly to one side.

'That scares the hell out of me,' he says to the camera but he perseveres with the lesson nonetheless.

He cracks it again with force and the long cord smacks him hard on his thigh... but he still doesn't stop.

The third time he throws his arm forward more quickly and the whip strikes him viciously on his hand and chest causing him to leap away and drop the whip with an exhalation of pain.

Thankfully he seems to end the trial there and the footage cuts to the bloody wound he now sports on his leg: 'That's lovely right there' he says.

As he stands over the rope, before the video ends, he announces, 'Well that was by far one of the stupidest things I've ever done in my life.'

He adds: 'I think I was muscling it way too hard.'

Ropar uploaded the clip  - entitled 'Physics 4 Bryan 0'  - to his YouTube channel, Bryan Ropar's World of Science and Engineering - one of his many unusual and varied channels.

He writes on the channel's description: 'Please this stuff can be dangerous don't try what you see me do- I write risk assessments, am very aware of my soundings, and have been trained to do most of these activities.' 

Ropar - who has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism - has also collected tens and tens of plastic chairs and has a YouTube account dedicated to them - Bryan Ropar's Plastic Chair World.

He says: 'I'm one of largest collectors of plastic chairs in the world and have a very vast knowledge on the types, different designs, how they are constructed, and the history. I got into collecting plastic chairs because I found them to be a fascinating.'
