“I tried to think of a witty comment to this story … but I was stumped.” So begins the comments section to the story about a Washington man who was rushed to the emergency department after cutting off his arm with a homemade guillotine. While the story is sad, many of the comments are amusing … in a morbid kind of way.
A picture of the actual guillotine is here.
Then there’s this article about whether the patient may have Body Integrity Identity Disorder. A related story describes a man who wanted to cut his arm off with a table saw but who lost his … nerve.
Aaaaugh. Make it stop.
