Not everytime does the skin come off. Try as hard as we can but sometimes while looking for the needle in the haystack stuff happens.
Such as sinking the machine and hoping one of your buddies will get wet to the waist, or throw you a rope.
If you do it right though, you don't need no stinking rope.
And then sometimes the tundra taxi has to haul you 70 miles back to town after you burn up and leave the pistons at home.
