    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.

    What i mean is, the second arm seems like it'll usually give you some trouble.

    Sorry man, but that whole idea is just plain dumb. If I met anyone with said "disorder" I would actually laugh at them. That is not a disorder, if that is true, that is just plain ol' nutts. Send them to the looney bin please.

    Yeah they weren't very clear on how he did it. I think everybody was just in a state of shock and disbelief. Once one arm is cut so far you couldn't cut the other. Anyway I'm as guilty as anyone in this thread about the jokes. But I think of how the family of this guy feels. He obviously has mental issues. The same goes for the Beaver threads it's easy for all of us to joke about these tragedies if we are not directly connected to them. Hey what can I say I'm a softy sometimes.

    When I was a kid I hated having warts on my hands so much I cut them all out with a fingernail clipper. If you cut deep enough, they mostly don't come back, and the ones that did got a second treatment. I like my arms though.
