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
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.
