    In China, men who are caught organizing a rebellion against the Communist Party have their legs cut off and are forced to cut grass with hedge trimmers.

    When I was in a resort in Jamacia they used large knifes to weedeat with. Not sure if they were just that poor backward or it was a noise issue with the resort.

    yep...we've been fortunate to have visit many islands in the Caribbean and have seen this on most of them. In St Kitts back in June and saw it then. A guy cutting weeds 2 foot tall and higher with large knife (or machete), he looked to be 6' tall, bending over cutting that stuff to 6 inches or so. What's so amazing..we came back by 30 minutes later and the area he had cleared was unreal, don't think i can go that fast with wacker :cry: :cry: . oh yea...he was barefooted. :dizzy:
