Article – What to do when body parts fall off

Originally published at Notes from the bunker…. You can comment here or there.

The guys at CNN really hit it out of the park when it came to headlining this article. Certainly got my attention.

When I was a kid I got a little careless around a band saw and cut almost halfway through a finger.  Scared the crap out of the shop teacher, lemme tell ya. In retrospect I find it amazing that any public school would put fifteen kids in a room full of ancient powertools and give them only one adult to supervise them.

Anyway, its an interesting article about what your supposed to do when you lop off a body part. We all know we’re s’posed to put the severed part on ice, right? Well…yes and no. The article says why.

I’ve a few friends missing small parts of themselves. In Montana you see a lot of guys who have had farm accidents that put them in the realm of counting in base nine. Or eight. Or seven.  Crom forbid I ever accidentally lose a piece of me butif I do at least now I know not to put it in direct contact with ice.
