I saw this happen the other day. A guy accidentaly shot himself in the thumb while using a staple gun. I didn't talk to him about it, just heard him yell "OH ****", then saw him pull it out and bandage it. I wondered, would he have came to work for the less than 300 bucks he made that day if he knew he would mess his thumb up?
Then I wondered, how much would a fooster want to do the same intentionally? Seemed like an interesting thread idea. Kinda MERTONish too, and that's always a plus.
I personally would blast my thumb with a big old staple for 700 bucks, maybe less if I was in the mood. Just not through the nail. How about you?
