You can bet this guy was feeling the permanent press-ure.

A man in China got his head stuck inside a washing machine that he was fixing on Sunday. The poor sap was working on the drum inside the unit when his noggin got lodged inside like a sock that you can never seem to find.

Fortunately, it only took firefighters an hour to save him, although they had to use a chainsaw to do it. We can only imagine the horror he felt when A) he heard that tool was an option and B) he heard the sound of it being revved up. How exactly do the Chinese say "Leatherface?"

The man is doing okay now, although it sure sounds that for one brief moment he was static clinging to life (sorry -- we just couldn't resist).
