True stories from a guy with whom I used to work....since retired.  He was felling a tree that he had to make sure fell in a certain spot.  So he tied a long chain to it and to his tractor and told his buddy to cut the tree.  His buddy hollered, "You sure that chain is long enough!"  "Yep", he replied, "Go ahead and cut the tree. He then put tension on the chain with the tractor. Sure as hell......that chain wasn't quite long enough and the tiptop of that tree DanG near whipped him to death when it fell on the tractor.  Another time, this same fellah was walking down a wooded hillside on his property when he came to an old dead rotten standing pine limbs.  So he figured he'd just push it over. So he pushed and let go and pushed and let go and pushed and the top of the dead trunk broke off and fell right on top of his head laying him out cold.....after he rolled down the hill a bit. When he finally was able to get up, he was covered, inside and outside his clothes with the powdered rotted wood.  He said he learned that ya ain't supposed to push over an old dead tree like that. He had never figured on it breaking off at the top.  ;D

Charlie -- Did you say he was retired or disabled- :D  Reminds me of a sub I had working for me . This guy always tied into electric lines , if they were available, if they were closer to where he wanted to set up his work table(usually in the shade).  Well I was on the job site one day when he set-up and he was on an eight foot ladder tieing into the electric and the poor fellow turned to chat with me and touched two together---well the next thing you know he gets blown about 10 feet out in the yard. :o :o He quit that practice -but he still stutters to this day, and he was very lucky !!
