Isn’t it amazing the way people ignore safety rules, the laws of physics and even commonsense when they are not at work. Do-it-yourself stump removal seems to be Exhibit A, as seen in this video:
If that happened once, you might think it was just a dumb mistake, but it turns out the internet is full of man Vs. physics failures involving tree stumps. That includes a news report last year when someone died when he was trying to pull a stump with an SUV and the vehicle flipped.
Sometimes we are our own worst safety hazard!
