mikaloyd: That is a badass way to die
I_Am_Weasel: Jesus, Cross was impaled.
Kuroboom: Shame this article wasn't from the New York Post.
Archie Goodwin: Did he forget the cardinal rule of standing between the chainsaw and the tree trunk?
abhorrent1: Farking safety harnesses. How do they work?
Raider_dad: Archie Goodwin: Did he forget the cardinal rule of standing between the chainsaw and the tree trunk?Maybe he never studied law.
berylman: It had to be an elaborate suicide designed too look like an accident. No one is dumb/crazy enough to stand in a tree 30' up with a running chainsaw without a safety harness.
kling_klang_bed: This makes me wish that '1000 Ways To Die' was still around. This and many other articles on here would be another 5 seasons worth of material.
Headso: no need to even climb the tree at all, you can rent a cherry picker for like 80-100 bucks a day.
rebelyell2006: kling_klang_bed: This makes me wish that '1000 Ways To Die' was still around. This and many other articles on here would be another 5 seasons worth of material.Dear god, the one with the at-home liposuction using a shopvac freaked me out for some reason.
pissnmoan: I saw a case once: The guy was drinking on a second floor deck at a house warming party. This being a new house, there were freshly planted trees and shrubs in the yard. Just off the deck was a new tree held upright by several metal fence posts strategically staked around it. For some reason, the guy jumped off the deck. He landed arse first on a fence post. It impaled him and the exit was through his abdomen. His drunk buddies did the right thing and pulled the post out of the ground and not out of the poor bastard that had acquired it. It took a bit of surgery to repair the guy but he was eventually OK.
WilderKWight: This is why I don't do any of this stupid manual labor shiat. Fark than noise. I'll let the dumb-ass contractors risk their lives. Climbing trees with a chainsaw in hand is a job for someone with a double-digit I.Q. and a beer can collection.
qualtrough: Whenever I climb something, which is less and less as I get older
SuperNinjaToad: Tree cutting or trimming services is extremely expensive. I can see why a lot of home owners choose the DIY route.I just had a medium size tree taken down and the company charged me $800! and that's the lower bid one.If I'm any poorer than I already am I may have been very tempted to do it myself.
