I'd rather have something odd x-rayed in my ass and have my name released that go through that.

Ahhh... the old 'grind a link hinge pin in the chain' trick. More of those wacky on-the-job hijinks people play on each other.

I once forgot to take off the cap when giving myself a milk enema and it got stuck in my colon. I tried everything to get it out, even a bent hanger. Eventually they took me to the hospital and they attached this giant vacuum cleaner thing to my ass that looked like something out of Dr. Seuss

I hope my story doesn't turn anyone off enemas.

DVDA :

Better than the guy i read about (in Reader's Digest ~20 years ago) who fell into a wrought iron fence spike that impaled him through his lower back and went up thru his chest cavity and out the side of his neck.  Amazingly, it missed anything that would've instantly killed him.  They cut the fence and took him to the hospital with 3 feet of iron sticking out of him on both ends.  He lived.

I had a conversation with a 911 operator who had, in her repertoire, a story about a man cut in half by a hot concrete saw. It was hot enough to cauterize his wounds, and he was able to leave a message on the line. He was scooped up and the surgeons tried to put him back together, but died a day or two later.

I handled workers comp claims for 20+ years, so got to see a lot of disturbing injuries come into the office:

1.  Meat packer stuck a knife into a beef carcase that wasn't completely thawed.  The blade hit the frozen part, skidded off and back at him, piercing his dick on one side and out the other.  EMS transported him to the ER with the blade still in his dick.


2.  Construction worker on a bridge using a gunpowder charged nail gun.  the nail hit a knot in the wood, bounced off and into his neck, puncturing his subclavian artery.  He bled to death internally, dieing just as they got him to the ER.


3.  Guy in a religious commune working for them to rehab an old house.  He was nailing quarter round trim to the mopboards when he hit one nail wrong.  It flipped up and hit him in the eyeball, piercing it and hanging there out of the eye.  When I took his statement on the claim, I asked him what he did next.  "Well, I called the guys I was working with over and we prayed for a bit and then got in the car and went to the ER."  I so much wanted to say, "Dumb ass!  You get into the car and have them take you to the ER and pray on the way!"

I could go on, but...

Fark that. o_O

I still have a pencil lead that broke off in the palm of my hand during a seizure when I was in grammar school over forty years ago.

I still have an x-ray of the time I managed to get a quarter lodged in my throat while screwing around as a stupid teenager. It is a profile of my head that showed a perfect circle stuck in my throat.

But a chainsaw in the neck? Gotta pass on that.

I live in Pittsburgh, this is not an April Fool's joke. The tv news has an interview with him sitting in his hospital chair. The surgeon said he was lucky because most of the damage was to his shoulder and he'll probably be released sometime today. Dude is tough - says he'll take about a week off then go back to tree trimming.

Many years ago I got cut (relatively minor) on a band saw halving frozen lobsters. 2yrs after that a friend of my dad had a handheld circular saw kick back on him and run up his left arm. The sound of any saw running still creeps me out a bit.

I've always been worried about the chain snapping as well.  My mom is the one that didn't want me get a chainsaw, but I bought one anyway.  It was kind of a rebel moment when I did.  It was while I was still living with my parents, and I was clearing out trees that grew along the fence line.  I was using an axe, which why that seemed safe enough to her still makes me wonder.  Well, a try fell against another tree and I couldn't get to bulge.  I claimed I was going to the store for more rope, came back with the saw and finished the tree.  I thought for sure my mom would come running out of the house the moment I started the saw, but instead she didn't talk to me for a few days.  That was the first time I got the silent treatment from a woman, and I was okay with it.

I kind of wonder if the safety experts aren't just acting like my mom, but I never do stupid stuff with my saw like cut above my head with one hand either.

WTH, I had a girl stab me in the back during 7th grade science class.  I too got a crush on her, but I didn't follow up with it.  Man kids are weird, and I wonder how we got through it.

Yes, kickback is one of the first thing anyone learning to use a saw from a competent person will learn about.  All modern chainsaws have an inertia activated chain brake that is supposed to stop the chain spinning if a kickback occurs.

One can test this by holding the bar tip above a stump a few inches and letting go of the top bar and letting the tip hit the stump.  The inertial brake should engage.

Optimally, you never have your face in the "kickback path."  It's also extremely important to wrap your thumb underneath the top handle.  A lot of operators, even pro tree workers, rest their thumb on the handle, parallel to it instead of underneath.  This greatly reduces the amount of control you have in a kick back since the handle can slip right out of your hand.
