it's that if you're a six-fingered man and
you kill a guy, you're best off chopping your
arm off so nobody can identify you by your
fingers. No, wait... if I've learned TWO
things from the movies, it's the thing about
the fingers AND that if you're a one-armed
man, you're equally screwed. So never mind.
