I can't figure out how these guys don't faint or go into shock while doing it.

ridiculous. I woudnt have the balls to do it til I realized there was nothing else I could do.

Kinda sucks for this guy...he basically chopped his arm off for no reason.

I don't even think I could do it, even when I came to realization I had to.

its kind of a lame way to get an arm stuck. feel bad for the guy, but the hiker has a cooler story. i wouldve just pulled as hard as i could or something. find some type of lubricant and wiggle it out.

I actually read a book on that while I was bored at work... its a pretty shitty story especially after you see pictures of the space he was stuck in and the thoughts he had every day while stranded. Not to mention he spent days using a multi-tool with a small dull knife to try and get through his bone.

No cell phone in the pocket? And jumping the gun on the amputation? I know a human can go a more than two days without water - which he had anyway. Terrible situation. I was locked in a Sonic bathroom for like 20 minutes and that made me crazy.
