You can't fix STUPID! I wonder what part of TABLE saw he didn't understand. Oh! I get it! He thought he had an ICE CHEST saw.

the story just doesn't make sense to me... how could it chop his hand off? was he working on the floor right next to the table saw or Im betting the only way I can think is as it fell he tried to catch it strange accident for sure.

The beer must have run out in the ice chest.

This is the type of story that just screams, "there may have been alcohol involved!"

I got lost in thought. it was unfamiliar territory.
