And from today's episode of the Twilight Zone - 2007 . . . .

True story - Authorities in Orange County are working to recover the remains of a 24-year-old Anaheim man who was killed Wednesday in a wood chipper accident in Tustin.The tree service worker "was standing at the back end of the chipper, throwing branches into it with his co-workers nearby," said Sgt. Pat Welch of the Tustin Police Department."One of them looked over, and he was gone."

I have always been afraid of power tools - especially chain saws. I have a (maybe not so irrational) belief that they have a mind of their own and will kill you or seriously maim you, given the opportunity. This incident is not going to get me to add a jigsaw to my holiday wish list.

Or a Coen brothers movie. . . .

Hey, it wasn't Steve Buscemi, was it?

You've clearly read too much Stephen King.

I've never had a problem with a chainsaw, but I've always respected them, never liked wood chippers, especially the big kind. Logging ranks up there as one of the most dangerous industries--I'll cut some firewood but that's about it.

Fargo--that's the movie...

I also hate loud, scary, machinery.

OMG, how terrible!

Hubby won't touch chainsaws, uses the old-fashioned ones that pull back and forth.
