For someone, somewhere in America, this weekend is the last weekend they have all 10 fingers.

This gentleman got a head start!

When asked how this happened, the man said he was stumped.
 
2022-07-02 7:43:22 PM  
HIgh-five!!

As for number of hands.. he's got one left.

That or he will be all right.

Well give the man a hand!

This is what happens when you don't listen to south Florida Firefighters.

It's unclear whether doctors were able to re-attach his hand.

Is the journalist (using the term loosely) at all familiar with how fireworks work?

If there is a site for mass shootings, is there an instructional opportunity to show the loss of fingers, toes, hands, eyes, and the scary 'other,' category through a website?

Like this but with digits/appendages.

I'm guessing it wasn't something that was purchased from the corner "safe and sane" (🤣) fireworks stand.

I did that years ago...luckily, it was just a smoke bomb that malfunctioned. Just got a pretty bad burn.

Still hurt like hell.

There are some real problems being shown in those X-rays...But I can't quite put my finger on it...

When I was a yute a small firecracker went off in my hand as I was about 3/4 of the way through my toss. Here's a visual of what it felt like:

Looking at that pic made me think: "Complicated gang signs you can only flash once".

Just regrow it. They have a drug for that now. Ask for Francis.

There's the narrative hook.

What if you have extra? Maybe you do want to play with fireworks.

NCSB. When I was in high school my best friend was dating this big dumb jock.  So it comes around to 4th of July, did I mention he was dumb? Anyway, he decided fuses take to long and busted open an M-80 and touched a match to it.  It went about as well as you could expect.  They got to spend the holiday in the ER. I doubt it made him any smarter.

Funny/ironic that when I lived in FL 15 years ago, I'd always jokingly post a "Happy 4th of July, don't blow your hand off, drink some water" safety brief every year to my friends. It brings both a sense of stability and concern to my life that FL-man-blows-hand-off-with-fireworks is still a thing. Perhaps, it shall always be. *strokes imaginary beard in deep thought*

That does it. I'm never taking a mannikin with me to set off fireworks. They're just too stupid.

Good!  The assholes in the adjoining neighborhood have been setting off fireworks all week...I'm not a praying man but I have been praying that they blow their damn hands off.
