Do county officials really need a five pound blade? Sure, it's supposed to stay safely attached to the lawn mower, but when you have an accidental discharge, babies could be seriously hurt. Let's limit mowers to two pound blades to help prevent senseless mower violence.
Fortunately the little one was safe and sound. That could have been pretty ugly. That makes me think though, has anyone ever done lawn mower blade ballistics? That sucker went through quite a bit - "fliiine through the eehhhr" - before stopping.
