ChainsawWell, it turns out that a 43 year old German man was a bit upset about his recent divorce, and decided to cut his family's house in two with a chainsaw.  In case you're wondering you read correctly, he cut his whole house in two.  Some of you may be thinking that he merely cut through part of it in an attempt to make an empty gesture.  I assure you that he made a full gesture and hauled his portion of the house away on a truck.

What caused this man to do this?  A divorce is one thing, but cutting your house in half is completely different.  It's not like this was an afternoon job like cutting the grass… "Well, better go cut the house in half, been putting that off for a while now."  Part of me wonders if he was taking down his "Baywatch" posters when he ripped a portion of his German wallpaper which led to a series of unfolding disasters in an attempt to cover the blemish.  A little putty here, a trim there, and before you know it you've got 2 bedrooms and point five baths on the back of a flatbed truck.

I wonder what you think when you pull up in your drive and half of your house is missing.  It probably depends on what kind of day your having.  I can imagine pulling up and not even noticing it until you realize that your neighbors can see you tinkling in what used to be an ornate powder room.  

I guess the guy ended up going to his brother's house to stay.  I wonder what happened when the brother offered to help bring some of his things into the house.  "Gunther, you can sleep on the pull out couch, but you're not putting that thing in the rec room.  I don't care what you had to do to get it here.  Why don't you sleep in it?  I know, you already said it was drafty."
