If You Want To Stop Your Husband From Using The Internet, Chopping Off His Hand Seems A Little Extreme
from the next-time-maybe-pull-the-plug dept
We’ve certainly heard of family members growing frustrated over the amount of time a spouse or a child was spending on the internet, but you have to admit that it’s on the fairly extreme side of the spectrum of responses to deal with this by chopping off the person’s hand. However, according to some news reports, that’s exactly what one woman in China did to her husband after she felt he wasn’t paying enough attention to her. As he sat at the computer in an internet cafe she chopped off his hand. Oddly (and somewhat unbelievably) the guy claims he only noticed when the pointer on the screen stopped moving and he felt a numbness in his hand that had been on the mouse (and then he noticed the blood). It’s not clear how he didn’t notice his hand being chopped off — or even how it was chopped off. So, perhaps the story is simply urban legend, but there appear to be a fair number of news organizations reporting that same story. We’re hoping that at least one bothered to fact check to find out that it really happened.
