Looks like this dude could use a little help in the first aid department.

Via Bits & Pieces,

"This guy fell backwards onto a cactus after a few drinks while playing a round of golf at a desert course.  It took paramedics over three hours to remove the cactus before he could get into an ambulance and go to the hospital."

Ouch. The cholla cactus is one amazing beast. Brush against it ever so lightly, and it grabs on - deeply and painfully. Scroll all the way down to see the cholla in action, starting at 0:28.

I cringed so bad at the video, then i scrolled up and saw the guy covered in them and I cringed some more. That is brutal, is there a more gentle way to remove them? Cactus solvent!

BIG cry-babyyyyy, LOL!!! Been there; done that. But only through pants :-). You wont catch me with my pants down, with lots of cacti around!
And yeah eshian, you can dissolve them, real-fast! with a BIG blowtorch! See, that way, you won't notice, so much, the problem you just had, with the cacti. The cacti in your flesh act, will only be a washed... err rather, burnt-out memory in the back of your mind. Enjoy!!

PS. The torch makes the skin more giving and pliable too.

Disclaimer:
None of the above methodology about the blow-torch is to be taken seriously.
And furthermore, you take full responsibility for any and all injuries you suffer from trying said blowtorch method.

ARGH I read halfway down, burned my leg and read the disclaimer! Curse you Not so Fine print!
