Question cut off my feet?

one of our local radio stations did an interview with this guy this morning.

www.cutoffmyfeet.com

seems that this man needs his feet amputated and needs prosthetic feet (which will cost $40,000 and need to be replaced every 3 years) so he has decided to kill two birds with one stone.

he will be cutting off his own feet using a guillotine live on the internet on halloween night (with emergency medical personnel standing by). he is charging $19.95 to see this feat (no pun intended) to raise the money to pay for the prosthetics.

the website isnt done very well, which makes it look like a hoax, but after hearing him on the radio this morning, I believe it is quite real

would you pay to see something like that?

even if by paying to watch it you would be helping this man afford a neccessary medical proceedure that he obviously can't afford?

Wasn't there a thread where this was described as a sexual gratification being the motivation for removing his feet?

I believe this is voluntary.

Edit: I guess this is a different guy (maybe). Interesting coincidence that two people are offering live foot removal as entertainment. I'll wait for the Quicktime version on SP.

the actual process of doing it himself with a guillotine pay-per-view style is voluntary...but the man does actually need his feet amputated. he had some sort of accident that severed his spine and left him paralyzed from the knees down.

I'd be likely to pay him the money not to watch.

I the UK, he'd get the operation (eventually) for free anyway, so it seems a bit weird...

Originally he was supposed to cut them off on Sept. 19, my birthday. I think the guy is whacked (pun intended).

Why does he need prosthetic feet then? Surely if he is paralyzed from the knees down prosthetic feet would be kind of pointless?

So, do they have bionic ankles and toes... apparently you need your toes for balance, and I would imagine trying to walk without ankles wouldn't be much fun either.

If he is American, the surgery to have the feet removed would have been at least $40,000.00.

Since he is doing it himself, can't he take the money he would have otherwise spent on the surgery to buy new feet?

(yah.. and I clip coupons too)

Bah...you ppl are no fun. He's cutting off his own feet! Isn't that enough? Do you really need a reason? Sheesh. You ppl are so hard to please. I would pay for it if I had money to blow.

Besides, it makes more sense to me than plenty of amputee related things I've seen like :

we could all get together and have a "watch some guy sever his feet" party. that way we could all pitch in to pay the 19.95....it would almost be free!

For those of you still curious about "Freck", the amputation is to take place on Jan. 5th. 2002.

ack.....where's this come from???

i had almost forgotten about this guy. I don't think I'd pay to watch it, but I'll prolly find as much as I can to read about it after the fact. Curiosity has the best of me in this case.
