My mother was always saying, “make sure you have clean underwear on, in case you’re in an accident”. Well, ah, never mind.......
That reminds me of a joke. An Indian chief was waiting outside the wigwam while his wife gave birth. His older son asked him, "How do we get our names, father?" The chief said, "Well, son, when the baby is born, I go in to see the baby and when I come out, the first thing I see is the name. For example, there is Running Deer, and there is Flying Eagle. Why do you ask, Two Dogs Screwing?"
If a tree falls in a nudist camp, does anybody notice?
Correction: If wood falls in a nudist camp, does anybody notice??
please only the bare facts.
guess he got wood....
It sure is. As a born and bred Steeler fan, I remember the death of former Steeler guard Steve Courson. As per Wikipedia"Courson stayed near Pittsburgh for the rest of his life. In November 2005, he died in an accident at his home in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Courson had been cutting down a 44-foot (13 m) tree on his property, but a gust of wind changed the direction of its fall, and he moved into its path while attempting to prevent his dog from being struck. The dog, a black Labrador retriever, was found alive guarding Courson's body when the tree was removed."
Trees give new meaning to the term "blunt force trama"
I got hurt more times than I can count when I was logging. Seems like every day there was a close call or something that slapped you upside the head, if not worse than that.
The wood removal expert, meeting all OSHA safety requirements, had not counted on the distraction from the young damsel walking lithely by, celebrating her birthday, thereby missing a crucial bit of information, that fine day......”TIMBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”.
New Jersey nudist camp?
Ooops, wrong Woods.
10 lb/ft limbs -- 70 feet up! Yikes!
Pine beetles killed off at least a dozen big pines on my place last Summer, and now, (including a couple actually in my yard) they are starting to drop big limbs. I won't even drive my tractor under one of them -- much less attempt to cut any of them down.
Some one could get rich by coming up with a remotely-operated method of dropping those beasts in a controlled fashion.
Too bad Detcord is not commercially available. (Dang terrorists screw up all sorts of good things...)
