I recall a conversation with my spouse some time back while we were driving in Nebraska.  She made an observation about how the old farmers would give a small wave with two fingers with their hand on the steering wheel when passing you in their pickup truck.  I said that's probably because that's the only fingers they had left on that hand.

Meh. That kid in ND had both his arms ripped off by a tractor's power intake, was knocked unconscious, woke up and walked to his parent's house, called 911 with a pencil in his mouth, and then got into the bathroom tub so he wouldn't get blood on their new carpet.

To the guy's credit, he remembered to bring the arm. Imagine getting half way to the hospital without it and not even being able to facepalm without crashing the car.

One thing that always strikes me as odd about these stories is how the media plays up the distance they had to travel to get help.  If something happens to you in the middle of nowhere, that's the only option.  The hospital isn't going to fly over to you, StarCraft-style.

I spent my childhood witnessing the at aftermath of various farming accidents. My father worked maintaining farm equipment for a large farm equipment operation. The man he worked for was missing parts of most of his fingers. Blasting cap accident. Mr farmer gave me the best safety briefing of my life. I was 11 and running a combine in soybeans. He came to check on me and noticed i was stopping, and shutting down the auger to clear weeds. He yelled at me for doing so and proceeded to demonstrate how to clear using his mangled hands with auger running. I just kind of nodded and said ok. The next time it clogged I shut it down and cleared. I did that the remainder of the day. It was a valuable lesson to learn when to ignore authority. I thank him for teaching me that. Rest in piece Mr John Totel.
