    Have any of you ever built your very own guillotine? Yeah... me neither. :shock:

    The comments to the article are pretty funny though.

    Genius!

    Never aim a guillotine at anything you don't want to destroy.
    Always be aware of what's behind the target.
    A guillotine is always loaded.
    Always point a guillotine in a safe direction.

    WTF was he making a guillotine for anyway? Was this a good thing (as in stopping a serial killer?)

    Would this be a 'win' or a 'fail'?

    Hey look at this cool guillotine I just built! I'll stick my arm in it and let it go! Ouch! What a [bad word] [bad word]. Serves him right. Darwin is not known for mercy.

    Mine as well. Did Providence or just good fortune stop a nut case before he managed to get started?













    At least he's disarmed! ;)

    tough times these days, tough breaks for a guy living in a camp that is a temporary home --- so he spends his time building a frikkin' guillotine. Yes, something is just a wee bit strange with this story

    I know of a guy that chopped of his arm from the forearm down because he did not like it anymore. It took him 16 hacks with a meat cleaver. F'ing crazy right
