    I'm trying to think of a situation where I would wake up one morning and actually think that this would be a good idea.

    Wow, you have to be pretty motivated to stay unemployed to saw your own foot off. I say give him lifetime benefits. Anyone willing to saw their foot off and cook in in the oven, should be honored, not vilified.

    I'm not sure I could even stomach sawing off my own foot, if it were trapped and I needed to do that to survive ala that hiker that sawed his own arm off.

    You MUST be joking? Cutting off your foot because it was trapped under a rock in the wilderness and you would've died otherwise is something humbling. Cutting off your foot cuz your are a lazy SOB and don't wanna get a job like other hardworking Americans just so you can get benefits from u/e is worth villifying. The gov't should send a msg and do to his u/e what he did to his foot - cut it off! This type of stuff should be completely discouraged and frowned upon. He is trying to work the system, funny thing is that it may not work. Really hope this backfires for him
