Definitely won't be an open casket funeral for those two. Encountered this once in my career and I got to tell you it'* not the sight of the accident that was bad, it'* the smells that send you over the edge.

I knew a guy personally that was stealing copper, he lost his arms from the elbow down and lost his legs from the knees down.

Is this a start of a 'what do you call a man with no arms and no legs' joke?

He could drive a car and spin the tires around a corner, without using fake arms or legs.

You forgot 'Art'.

There was a guy in my hometown, drove around on a moped, holding on with his one hand. The story was he attempted to steal copper (back in the 80'* - I guess he was a pioneer in this particular field of idiocy) and lost his arm out of the deal. The guy'* nickname, no kidding was-- The One Armed Bandit.
