Regardless of how in touch you are with your inner Canadian, or your own personal level of chainsaw skills, this probably should not be tried at home.
This short video, posted by Daniel Maylan of Alberta, shows just what a live chainsaw can do on ice in an urgent in-need-of-transpo moment when stranded in the Great White North. Of course, the fact that you are leaning over a running chainsaw while balancing on ice has an element of sketchiness about it.
With that in mind, we wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, anywhere, or from Saskatchewan even– with the possible exception of Regina’s own masked mystery man of medical experimentation gone wrong, Deadpool.
But if the ice is too thin you could wind up like this.
