We start the new year in our quest for nominees for the 2014 Darwin awards with this gentleman. His name is Jake Stonerman and has never actually used a chain saw before, or had any training, but was quite certain he could figure out hoe to fire it up to cut down a few trees in his back yard. After all how hard could it be?
Jake was successful in cranking the chain saw up to a high speed, however, because the blade was positioned between his legs, as shown in the photo, Jake wasn’t able to cut down any trees in the yard. He did, however, do quite a bit of damage to the ‘woody’ between his legs.
The last medical report gave him about a 50/50 chance of ever being able to use that particular member again.
Anyone who wants to submit a nomination for the prestigious Darwin Awards is certainly invited to do so right here. Next December we will pick the ten best and put them on display right here.
