Neil,

I guess that is one way to approach the problem. I think he will be out of the gene pool before two cords are split.

I think that one deserves a darwin award. Did you see the shards flying toward the cameraman?
Sorry about your accident. Hand injuries can be a pain, so to speak.

I showed it to my wife. She left half way through. Said she couldn't watch it anymore.

I was scared just watching that video. Funny how the "guard design" didn't contemplate the axe head coming loose and flying towards his head after several cords...

ThermoJax, thanks for your heads-up. At least your hand injury came from something productive, I hurt my hand punching a bus that was cutting me off and scraping my side mirror (the way people drive down here is another story).

However, 5 hours seems a long time to be a-splittin'.... I hope all ends well.
