From the stupid people files…

In Slovenia, 22-year-old Julija Adlesic carried out one of the most gruesome and ridiculous schemes hoping to collect a $1.2 million insurance policy payout. Instead of cashing that check, she’s going to jail for a few years.

The woman cut off her own hand with a circular saw and showed up at the hospital with her boyfriend, claiming she’d accidentally severed her hand while cutting tree branches.

Prosecutors say that she’d taken out five insurance policies about a year before the hand-chopping and that her man had also conducted internet searches on artificial hands. He received a three-year prison sentence.
