What the heck was this moron thinking? This could have turned out a lot worse than what it did.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Man, I wish they hadn't got off that easy. I have seen some terrible pics of power tools gone wrong.

Don't know, but if I was the referee I'd say "Ippon" and award the lathe a black belt.

Well I'm glad that's all they got and maybe they learned something. I believe in Karma and for those of you who know me, I've got enough problems then to ask for more.

At least he got slung over the lathe, with his foot stuck, and not something worse. I can't imagine having that chuck dragging my leg between it and the bed, till it just stopped. Or my face slamming into it, or any myriad of things that could have happened here. Wow. I hope he learned his lesson......

That was as stupid as the woman texting at the mall and falling into the fountain and then was upset because people laughed at her stupidity. Just be careful everyone because they do walk and live among us everyday.
