    Handsaw surgery

    Man tries to use a handsaw to saw off arms at a Home Depot. But if you're using a handsaw wouldn't you be able to saw off only one of your arms?

    Darwinism.. Too bad he had to do this in public. If you want to be stupid then by all means be stupid, but don't effect other people with your stupitidy.

    He was probably trying to pay for it, you know, the cost was an arm and a leg!

    It's puzzling how he managed to saw through both arms... do you think he used his feet?

    There's usually always a staff associate in an orange apron eager to lend a hand.

    Abnormal psychology is a strange world.

    Body integrity identity disorder (BIID, also referred to as amputee identity disorder) is a psychological disorder wherein sufferers feel they would be happier living as an amputee.

    Xenomelia is "the oppressive feeling that one or more limbs of one's body do not belong to one's self".

    Apotemnophilia is sexual arousal based on the image or fantasy of one's self as an amputee.

    Edit: "...apotemnophiles will purposely induce infections onto limbs or even harm themselves by going as far as partially sawing off limbs so medical professionals do not have a choice other than to remove the limb."

    Apparently you've never seen the episode of Tosh.0 where he hosts a web redemption for the girl with no arms.

    I guess if you practice enough; Home Depot now carries a line of footsaws as well as handsaws?

    No miter saw? That's the best if you want to cut a joint cleanly.
