    Motorcycle firewood cutter - GIF

    We're fortunate to live in an era with no shortage of dangerous firewood cutting ideas. But this one beats them all. The helmet is a nice touch.



    Not exactly sure what we have here. It seems like maybe stupid-dangerous DIY machines are emerging as a cable TV trend?

    Stuntmen are much like the rest of modern society: they don't make 'em like they used to. Here we have a 1979 video of stuntman Kenny Powers attempting to jump the Saint Lawrence River in a rocket-powered Lincoln Continental. 4:25 video; the stunt begins at 2:10:

    What's wrong with the wood saw? It looks to be well engineered. There is an operator, a helper and another helper/safty observer. The only dangerous thing is that the helper/wood feeder is not wearing approved safty googles.

    I like how he's careful enough to tuck in his tie. Not sure that would be my first concern.

    First off other than a means to protect your personal space from intruders I can not for the life of me figure out what the spinning knife gadget would be used for.
    Looks like a prime way to loose both hands or destroy anything he tried to reach for.
    What's up with the look of astonishment or is that a look of horror.
    Things like this just proves that very dangerous things can be made but probably shouldn't.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Tough choice, but I think this guy might be even worse. At least the knife spinning guy can dull those blades.

    Now that is a man's circular saw. Nice thing about it though is being hydraulic if he releases the trigger the blade will almost instantly stop
