Put your fingers in a jet if you want to erase them from existence. You aren't just chopping or burning them off. There's like, no trace of them at all. Your parents can't even remember if you were born with fingers or not. Jets are that powerful.
You're almost done erasing your fingers when the jet starts sucking all of you in. You would try to grab the closest thing to you, but your fingers don't exist anymore, so you hold onto the mats (まつ) at your feet with your toes. The mats are super strong (they're made for jets, after all) and you manage to save yourself!
