Yeah but it would be an epic fail of 2010.

A guy that worked for my dad many years ago stuck his finger in a timing chain (to check tension or something) on a running engine. Finger went bye-bye for a while. It was reattached later at the hospital though, mostly at least.

It's only a top 9 list - see the original article:

Remembering the top 9 Epic Auto Fails - GTcars

I think there was 2 threads for ChuckyZ because they were somewhat related, but still one big fail.
