Chainsaws. They're dangerous...obviously.

Australian golf champion, Greg Norman, (a man who's made quite a bit of money with those hands) recently posted a picture on Instagram standing next to a tree with a chainsaw in hand and a caption that read, "Never ask someone to do something that you can do yourself. Love to work!"

Unfortunately, one of the next pictures the 59-year old pro posted was a shot of him laying in a hospital bed with a caption reading, "When working with a chainsaw always be respecteful of the unexpected." He nearly cut off his left hand with that dangerous chainsaw in a labor of love.

Fortunately, he's fine and recovering quickly from an accident we bet he never 'saw' coming.
