Sean: First off, some basic information: How old are you? Where do you live? What do you do for a living?
Сергей Губанов: I am 47 years old and I live in Moscow, Russia. I’m p.h.d in computer science, I work as head of IT-department in one medium-size Russian company.
Sean: Is their any other personal information that you would care to share?
Сергей Губанов: I married and have two sons – 5 and 11 y.o. My hobby are photography and guitar playing.
Сергей Губанов:No. I don’t like tattoo,s piercings and other body mods.
Сергей Губанов: It’s difficult to answer. I dreamed about it from my childhood. And I don’t know why.
Sean: How did you go about doing the amputation?
Сергей Губанов: Those day I made some carpentry work with electric saw. It was in my summer house, just for fun. I was alone. Suddenly I felt “now or newer”.
Then I called to ER ;)
Сергей Губанов: No, I happy doing this and I regret that I didn’t do this 25-30 years ago.
Сергей Губанов: There are no difference except one – I can’t scratch inside my right ear
with my right pinky :)
Сергей Губанов: My relatives and friends think that it was an accident and sympathize to me.
From time to time I see stares to my hand, but I don’t know what those people thinks.
modifications in the future?
Сергей Губанов: I don’t think I will. Finger amputation only attracts me, but I need 5 left
fingers and 4 right to play guitar.
On behalf of myself, and several of the modblog readers, thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to answer my questions and bring us some insight into your life, your motives and your amputation.
