    I heard about this earlier today on the radio. If this guy says he'd give his right arm for something, don't doubt it!

    He must really believe in Carpe Diem!

    Guess football is very important to him.

    :D

    Wonder if he would give that for the team? :p

    I would take it! :D
























    On second thought, not so much. This is ridiculous to say the least.

    Honestly I don't blame the guy, and not because he did it for football.

    He would have to undergo numerous surgeries, and not to mention a very high chance of arthritis. He probably has saved himself countless years of pain.

    You would take his crotch? ...that's a little weird

    Things I would amputate a pinky for:

    - $250,000
    - to save my partner's life, or my best friend's life, etc etc
    - cool bionic finger replacement
    - whirled peas ;)

    Any other finger would be at least $500,000, and I think my pointer would be $750,000. A thumb would be at least a million because that thing is pretty important when it comes to doing.. well, just about everything. Your whole forearm could atrophy without one.

    Yeah, a pinky isn't anything special. You could get a prosthetic in there with a laser pointer even.

    HAHAHAH Laser pointer FTW

    I think I would want to keep my finger. This guy doesn't have much of a football future, he is completely retarded for amputating his pinky. How is he going to hit the Enter Button correctly? or shift!?

    I guess it's a good thing there are two shift buttons?

    Honestly I can see his point. It really is not that hard to imagine life without a pinky, and as evilgEEk said, he probably saved himself a ton of time, pain, and money in surgeries and such. Hardly seems worth it for such an inconsequential digit. And if you love the sport and the team that much, sacrifices can be made.

    I pulled my little pinkie out of its socket once playing British Bulldog. Without thinking I pushed it back in and it was fine. Reading this made me cross my fingers.

    Ahh, British Bulldog. Yet another game banished from our church camp after a priest broke a 7th grader's leg. :eek:

    Must be a church thing, then. I did mine at Scouts.
