That cat looks pretty damn wary.

Mr Zheng waited until his wife went to bed and within 20 minutes had cut off his right leg with a metal saw, a small fruit knife and a back-scratcher wrapped with a towel.

MacGyver award, anyone?
 
2013-10-22 07:55:05 PM
As one so often does.
 
2013-10-22 07:59:03 PM
That is one tough dude. 20 minutes from start to finish? I would have been passed out after the first cut for 20 minutes.
 
2013-10-22 08:19:07 PM
Sounds like he's on his last leg.
 
2013-10-22 09:00:08 PM
He just got a job at IHOP.
 
2013-10-22 09:22:11 PM
Why would he do that?

/I'm stumped

Yeah, he is one tough mofo...jeebus man.

Ah, I see he chose the GOP health plan.

He should have moved (illegally) to California, hacked off his wife's leg, then while in prison his health issues would have been taken care of.

When asked why he amputated his own leg Zheng replied that "It seemed like a good idea at the time."

To me that sounds like some sort of subtle fault in brain wiring which might cause a subconscious feeling of WRONGNESS associated with the specific limbs, even though nothing is wrong with it.

Tl;dr but I expect that they'll go on to talk about how the mind doesn't accept certain parts of the body as actually belonging to the body? The best story I heard during a psychology course was of a person putting the legs (I think it was the legs) in a freezer to force doctors to get rid of them. Only the doctors needed to take bit too much, making the patient feel like they lost something instead of merely got rid of excess bagage.

I can understand the saw and even the fruit knife, but does anyone else wonder how "a back-scratcher wrapped with a towel" was used?

Did you read the article? Or, more specifically, did you look at the pictures?

Looks like he held it in his  teeth to clamp down.  Pussy.

"When I was three years old, I met a young man who was completely missing all four of his fingers on his right hand," writes a twenty-one-year-old woman who says she is planning to have both her arms amputated.


Is she going to teach herself how to use her feet to do everything including wiping her ass or does she expect everyone to wait on her hand and foot?

Afterwards, he took his leg, beat a bear to death with it, ate her and her cubs, drank 4 cases of whiskey in a row, banged 500 colleges worth of Chinese schoolgirls in a row, beat the poop-filled guts outta 5000 Triad members, took a massive 10-ton dump, and went home, where his wife already had a buffet ready for him. All in a day for Zheng Yanliang, the Tony Ja of self-dismemberment.

Still, I gotta wonder where the back scratcher came into play. Probably to scratch the bottom of his boulder-sized balls.

His back itched but the scratcher was sharp and he didn't want an owie.

You see that thing in his mouth? That's how it came into play.

Somehow I get the feeling you two didn't look at the pictures.  I wonder why these two jokes don't have a leg to stand on.  I know it will just walk right up to me later, if it had legs.

Man that guy must have will power to rival Doctor Doom's.  I would probably have tried to get some locals to basically hold me down and cut it off.
