    I lost my hand in mincing machine accident - but I still want to be a butcher

    I was doing some research on minced meat and came across this article. What a guy, very inspirational. All the power to him

    Very cool. There needs to be more focus on trades in our economy and butchering is a great one!

    That is pretty hardkore. I f I had had to undergo something as traumatizing as this, I'm not sure I could ever have gone near a meat mincing machine again .. much less barely a month after the amputation

    But do watch out for that other hand now buddy ...

    Clearly, butchery is in his blood, both figuratively and literially.

    "The butcher backed into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his work."

    This guy is hardcore. I sliced a small part of the end of my middle finger off slicing tomatos a long time ago and every time I cut tomatoes now it gives me the creeps. I couldn't imagine working without a hand.I don't know how he returned to work so soon after such a horrific & mentally scarring incident.
