    How could this happen?

    Supposedly a man cut his own head off with a chainsaw.

    His body was found by police on 5 July, who said his death was not suspicious. Post-mortem tests showed he died of a "complete transection of the neck".

    A spokesman for the coroner said: "As far as we know nobody else was involved.

    Apparently, a German also cut off his own head with a chain saw.

    Re: How could this happen?

    The second one you posted is the one I thought of when I saw the title of the thread.

    Also, I seem to remember reading about someone cutting off their head with a regular hand-held Skil-Saw type of device some time ago.

    Well.....I suppose if you watched these reruns back to back it would be possible.

    Kansas 24, Iowa St. 21, OT

    LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Iowa State had a chance to wipe away the bitter memory of last season's missed opportunity. Instead, the Cyclones let a berth in the Big 12 title game slip away in overtime again.
    Last year it was Missouri who beat Iowa State to prevent the Cyclones from playing in the league championship game for the first time.
    This year it was Kansas.
    The Cyclones wasted an 11-point lead and missed a field goal in overtime, then watched Scott Webb kick a 34-yarder to give the Jayhawks a 24-21 victory Saturday that makes them bowl eligible and sends Colorado to Houston next weekend to meet No. 2 Texas for the Big 12 championship.
    ``It's rare in life to get second opportunities,'' Iowa State coach Dan McCarney said. ``Sometimes you wait 10, 15, 20 or 30 years and don't get another opportunity like we did today, coming up short like we did last year in overtime. We had that opportunity today again in overtime, but again we came up short.''

    Any one want to fire up the chainsaw?

    In the new Andromeda Strain remake a guy did that after he was infected. Amazing CG effect. I suppose he had the throttle open plus the momentum got the job done.
