    I jump when I get a pin prick in the finger, I am sure I would have been dancing around if I had started cutting through my flesh and bone.

    I wonder if he ever finished the project :?: (The ceiling that is, not dismembering himself!)

    Apparently he struggles with some DIY jobs now and has to ask someone to lend him a hand.

    It was a close thing - he was lucky to save the watch.

    And hair. I remember a teenage boy at school had white (long) hair, which is how it grew back after being pulled out by a pillar drill in woodwork.

    all i can say is his medication alcohol consumption must fully mask the pain as the threshold must be 100% sensation removed
    all his pain and feeling levels as in sound smell and stupidity must be removed from the brain for him not to notice ??
