    The same reason that you faint if someone karate chops you on your upper lip, faintings to do with pain (your body senses more pain than it sometimes lets you feel), as your fingers are used for touch nd are extremely senstive, so there are a hell of alot of touch receptors there, just like your upper lip (why kissing feels so sensual) and other places feet, ears, nose, palm, inner thigh and just about every dirty place :) :p
    So imagine hitting all these billions of sense receptors with a hammer, or slicing there connections, causes blocking of the pain nerves etc sending messages, and your brain/spinal chord cant handle it, so just switches you off :) so that it can sort itself out without having all the extra attention of you trying to think at the same time :)
    heh the bodys a clever thing ....

    I have a lot of small scars on my hands from allsorts (glass, metal, paper, hawthorn bushes, grass...). Victorinox knives are good, but I stick to lock knives myself, because they don't decide to close on their own.

    I agree with the pain thing, last week I was in the woods with some friends and we found a rope swing over a river, We all had a few swings and then I decided to drop into the river, I was barefoot, and dropped onto a very sharp very jagged rock, I didn't really feel anything but I thought I had a small cut. I climbed out of the river and saw I had a 3inch long gash on the base of my foot which was about an inch deep, you could see the bone in places. Strangely enough although in quite severe shock I was the only one who stayed calm and had to tell my mates what to do...in the end I had 10stitches and I'm now on crutches for about a month,

    It has also made me a little scared of my Knife, I did something similar although half my finger didn't drop off, I just cut a bit about 1mm thick off the tip of my middle finger,

    Well My stupidity tops all. I had a drill mounted 2inch circular saw (gheto dremel) that went dull when I was cuting some small pices of wood. So in a stroke of genious I decided to sharpen it. But Sharpening it I decided to mount it on the drill spin it at full drill speed 3krpm and I put a knife sharpening stone on it to start sharpening it. Menwhile I was holding the stone some one called me and I got distracted thus my midle finger went right into the flade for a cuple of spins. It touched bone and then some.


    Funny thing is that I didnt even go to the hospital to get it fixed. I just bandaged it with some tissue paper and then put electrical tape ontop and squeezed it till it was snug and continued working. About a week lader my scab fell out and there was a nice looking scar right down the fingerprint side of my finger.

    I would take a pic but I dont have camera bettery's handy.

    So any one dare challenge the king of stupid <------- :D :clap: :clap:

    Not modding, related but I think mine warrents points for stupidity.

    It was New Years Eve a couple of years ago, and I was working for a band (I know working on New Years is a bit sucky but it was double pay :D). Anyway the show went off without a hitch, as did the load out. All the gear was in the truck and all I had to do was fold up the hydraulic lifter on the back. as it was coming up I notices the chain which secures it was tucked inside where I couldn't reach it. I thought (this was 4am) that it was a good idea to reach in with my finger and hook it out. *CLUNK* Caught the tip of my infex finger just above the first joint. Cracked the bone and needed half a dozen stitches :duh:

    Got a couple of months off work though :p And I haven't worked another New Years since :D

    thats not sooo bad.

    My dad cutted of half of the top of his thumb, with his Leatherman wave, the flesh was actually hanging from a little piece of skin.. you could see the bone in it!

    blood blood and even more blood !!! strange thing is he didn't even go see a doctor :duh: , it healed... after about 2 months.


    but even more stupid:

    My dad and my neighbour were chopping some wood, for the fire place's. (his and ours). and my neighbour was working with my dads table saw (not electric, but with a engine). and my dad sed he should be more carefull, because he was getting close with his finger...

    and about 10 minutes later... bingo !

    a nice cut OUT of his thumb... loads of blood offcours, luckily it didn't need any stitching ... so they took a break, and ate lunch

    so a few hours later, they went back to do some more work done..
    my dad sed he should do something else, while he uses the table saw, but my stubbern neighbour wouldn't listen. so he continued using the table saw

    about an hour later... bingo !

    this time the middle finger had to take it , this time it took out his nail !, to the emergency room of the hospital, this needed some stitching, they also took pictures, there was a bit of the bone missing, cutted right out..

    it should heal , luckely for him though, he still has all his finger, but lost a few finger prints...

    so uh.. be carefull

    and: gloves don't stop a cutting blade ! lol

    L

    ::edit::

    I've cutted a few piece's of my fingers with my swiss army knife aswell, those things are sharp.

    but now I have a Leatherman Wave (two actually, one is in my toolbox for my RC Car (HPI RS4 3 EVO) and the other one is for general use, take it just about everywhere). and those knives are even sharper!!! (ask my dad, lol).

    so i'm twice as carefull with those knives.
