Keep this in mind: an overwhelming majority of Maricopa County Sheriff's Office inmates never escape from jail.

Also, keep this in mind: some guy dressed up milk cartons in his jail uniform, climbed through the ceiling, and apparently jumped over a fence in his underwear at 9 a.m. on Sunday.

Adan Orduno was caught about nine hours after his escape from the psychiatric unit, when he apparently thought he'd be meeting up with his ex-fiance, and instead met with an undercover MCSO detective.

Other sophisticated escape plans, in just the last year, include getting pushed out of jail in a laundry cart, and just walking out of jail after swapping wristbands and pretending to be someone else.

Based on these elaborate schemes, how would you rate the perceived difficulty of escaping from an MCSO jail on a scale of 1-10, with "10" being the most difficult?
