I believe he was going for a ‘CRAZY CHECK’ through SSI Disability. But Seriously?!! Hacking off your foot?

I don’t think that I have ever heard of anything like this. He is obviously disabled because of some sort of mental problem. Who would want to hire someone that is capable of doing something like that. What else is he capable of doing?

I saw that, yesterday.

I wonder what it says about me that … the first thing I thought of was … I wonder what kind of saw he used, and then went to the picture.

What the hell’s a moron suppose to do, JEEZ.
I wonder if the guy will get a job now promoting SawStop for idiots? LOL
Just glad I’m not his wife or son, now everyone must think the whole family is nuts.

That’s ok Neil, I wondered if it was a fine tooth blade before I saw the picture.

Me 2, Neil. That’s the first thing I looked at too.

Greg one-upped us both by considering the tooth number, lol:) Now that’s a woodworker!

Ya know, SawStop probably could have prevented this. SawStop is so awesome;)

Sorry to say it ,”Julie”,

But things can never work between us. It was fun while it lasted, but I simply can’t leave my wife for a spam bot. A few lines of code just can’t meet my needs.

That is just plain CRAZY!!!!

That guy needs to be in a mental hospital, he has something seriously wrong with him, in addition to now missing a foot.
