I think today's pot talk would have worked in perfectly into the pilot. With a budget they could get some ballistics gel molds with bone inside and see which way really is the best to cut a leg off.

I think the dummies at the network have something. I think it could work for at least 22 mins, then it would go the way of XFL.


And by the way, I would cut off my leg like they showed in LOST.

That's a great idea for a show.

You might even say it has legs...

The whole cutting your legs off bit was great. I wouldn't discount the train option. When I worked in the steel mill, I was trained to drive a train (hrmph-hrmph) with a remote control. You could totally do it by yourself.

My other thought was with a log splitter. Slow, painful, with a remote control as well.

Ballistics gel? Just use a cadaver. You could dig a few up if there were none available

I would coat my legs with gravy and attend a weight-watchers meeting

I think I'd have to go with either:

A) A car with no tires, just rims. Jack up the front or back of the car (depending on the drive wheels) and attach a rope. Put a weight on the gas. Lay infront the car and pull the rope.

B) Put your legs in liquid nitrogen smash once with a hammer, you could just sweep up the bits if your quick.

I could think of plenty more.

I would deep fry my feet, then sit on Bob Kelly's kitchen table. Virtually painless.

i say the dude did it in a pro fashion, tie it up tight, maybe below and above the knee for good measure... wait until they are dead feeling, then zip through the bitches...., but you would have to call 911 before you did it so there would be a recording in case you bled out and died..., something for the news to suck nourishment from.

Lie down on an auto shop floor and drop the lift down on your legs.

trains. quickest way. find a train, not moving too fast, and stick your legs on the track between freight car wheelsets.

dont stick your legs out in front of the locomotive, the plow will get them and just roll you up, fucking up more than your legs.

Ugh...it was almost too much for me to hear today. Funny, but I actually turned it off for a few minutes. I never caught as to why they wanted to cut their legs off though.

How about that water jet thingy they use on American Chopper....that looks quick, and the water would wash all the blood away!

Yep, that wheel chair is going to be far easier to get around in! My boobs bother me sometimes but I've never wanted them off. I just think of the good things about 'em!:D
