But was he still wrong?
 
2014-02-11 08:20:50 AM
He made a sound, all right. Sort of a wet, squishy sound

Was there a woman around to correct him?

Oh yeah, he made a sound, biatch.

"Oh shi...sppphthththbbbphtpht"

This happened at 05:50 p.m. meaning that morning wood is still safe.  Good thing.

Huh, I thought this would be some poor soul who was crushed while shoveling out after an ice storm.  If you succumb to this sort of demise during good weather and the fell was voluntary, then I don't know what to tell you.

Darwin was a little late.

Now the Sierra Club will claim if everyone had their own trees this would not have happened.

The answer is that YES the tree did make a noise when it fell, sorry you weren't there to hear it.

I don't know I work with a guy now and then that does tree trimming and removal and he's been doing it for about 18 years and he would be the first one to tell you that it's always dangerous. You also don't even want to begin to imagine the insurance rates for business doing that kind of work.

Does he drop it on his neighbor's car?
Nigel? That you?

You know what happens when a tree falls in the forest and there are no people around?

All the other trees laugh.

"Ha ha, look at gerald, he`s fallen over!"

What went wrong? Did they get to the root of the problem? Or did the issue branch out? The statement "mistakes happen" rings true. If he was married now you'd have a weeping widow.

So he was cutting down a random tree on some random piece of land that he didn't own, and it fell on him and he died? I'm having trouble coming up with sympathy for the old codger.

Sometimes you get the tree, sometimes the tree gets you.
 
2014-02-11 01:35:44 PM
the question is, was he dead before the tree hit the ground, or did he "survive" long enough for the tree to hit?  If we are talking about the first scenario, I'd think the chock wave cause by the tree's impact with the ground was simply that, a shock wave which was never translated by animal eardrums and brain signals into recognizable sounds.

Yup, the insurance rates and workers comp rates for timber harvesting companies are through the roof to the point where it is hard to make a profit.  You can be a tree felling expert but sometimes those things have a mind of their own.  Any part of that tree from top to bottom can surprise and kill you.
