Dumb as a bag of hammers but doesn’t qualify for a Darwin Award. For that you have to take yourself out of the gene pool before reproducing. That’s not to say he hasn’t done dumb things that could have potentially qualified him before.

I should have titled the post “Future Darwin Award Winner.”

Did you count his fingers ?

At least he is wearing blue poly gloves in the second (follow-on) video ... but what the heck is he making ? Looks like a Viking dagger, or something similar, with an antler handle

Oh Shoot! I couldn't Watch it Through.,
I am not Brilliant within the site of Blood, and while up to when I stopped it, he hadn't drawn any, he just went too, too, close.

There was a future Darwin Award winner a few days ago. Fellow gave his life taking a selfie with a wounded/hurt bear.

Man mauled to death while trying to take selfie with bear

According to his FB profile, the man in the OP has a PhD in public health. It's also interesting that in his profile video he is using the side of a grinding wheel while holding the angle grinder upside down in his lap with one hand. Probably doesn't know what it looks like when things go wrong with an angle grinder. Maybe should spend some time studying public health impacts of misuse of power tools...

It was very painful to watch. Kept waiting for the blood. I am sure there will be accidents in the future if he keeps it up.
