I got a new chainsaw last week and there were a lot of warnings concerning the use of it. I swear to God, there was a graphic of a guy doing exactly this in there. I can't decide if the people who wrote the instruction book are doofuses or if someone had done this before and they felt compelled to include it.

Nice illustration.
If warning labels were not included, natural selection would resume its place in the balance of nature.

I agree. Have you ever heard of the Darwin Awards? They are given to the stupidest actions that humans do in the previous year...I can't remember any specific events that won but they are amazing in the depth of their stupidity. That a chainsaw company would actually put this in the instructions means that somebody probably did it at one time and they (or their survivors) probably tried to sue the company because they weren't warned).
