Good luck with that. I asked the same question and never could get a straight answer. An inside joke I suppose...

Planes have just disappeared, along with the pilots thumbs, while attempting the dreaded 0 of 8!

It is always a good idea to have a friend standing by ready to take the transmitter during the attempt of the "0 of 8"

It never ends well. Don't even try it.
Here, a very experienced pilot, playing around on a downline, fatefully sets up for an attempt at a vertical 0 of 8.

No one will explain it. If you type an explanation, your post is flagged by the FBI, CIA, and Dept of Homeland Security. It's too dangerous to even think about.

I now understand, I do believe that I have seen Yuri do this with a restart.
