Finger Tips

So, a taxi driver in Denmark bit off the tip of a man's finger after an argument over how many people he could fit in the cab. The driver claims it was accident that occured during all the commotion.

Say what you will, but I believe the driver. Let he who hasn't bitten off someone's finger cast the first stone. That's almost in the Bible even. And if you're like me, you've accidentally bitten off more than one finger in your life. And I'm not just talking about conflicts-of course you're going to accidentally bite off tips of fingers in times of trouble. But there are situations like building a Pinewood Derby car with your Dad (to use one from my personal life) where it naturally occurs. One minute you're painting a crooked "7" on the hood of your pinewood car, the next minute you've ripped off half your father's pinky with your teeth.

These things happen. It's life playing that silly game with us (you know, the game where life bites off one of your digits). And frankly speaking, if you're not going into an argument and/or cab with the knowledge that you might lose a finger than, take the bus my because you, my friend, are not ready to argue.
