Is the OAM a time traveler?

Does the OAM wear women's clothing?

Did the arm removal occur in the kind of place you would normally expect an arm to be removed?

Do they know each other?
Yes

Does the missing hand tie back to the man who was shot?
Yes

Did the one armed man intend to shoot Man A?
Yes

Was the shot man directly responsible for the One-Armed Man's one-handedness?
Tricky, Yes

Was their subway meeting coincidental?
Yes

Was there a sudden flash of recognition?
Yes

Did the OAM know that the shot man was responsible for the hand loss prior to their meeting on the subway?
Yes

Did the shot man know he was responsible for the loss of the OAM's hand?
Yes

Did the OAM shoot the other person BECAUSE the other person was responsible for the loss of his arm?
No (this one gets into semantics a bit)

Does the OAM care that the other is responsible for his missing hand?
Yes

Not a surgeon

Not an accident

OG doesn't have the OAM's arm

No negligence

not conjoined twins

not related

Didn't lose it in a deliberate act of violence

The shootee did do something heinous to the shooter to cause the shooting.

Not co-workers

No business relationship

The OG did not commit an act o violence that resulted in the OAM

Is the means by which the OAM lost his hand relevant to his motivation for shooting the Shot Man? - Yes

Not a workplace-related injury

Not lawyers

OAM intended to kill the OG when he fired the gun

There was not malevolent intent on the part of the OG when he cost the OAM his arm

They did not have a close relationship

They were not friends

Basically no prior relationship before losing the arm

Had not seen each other since the incident

OAM had not been down on his luck

The OG was not helping the OAM when the hand incident took place

The OG recognized teh OAM before being shot

Professions are irrelevant

Loss of arm not violent but was deliberate

The were other parties involved in the hand incident but not the shooting

My wife is now participating at home

The OG was not trying to help someone else during the arm incident

The arm incident was the "only way out"

Arm not severed in a subway door

Hair splitting going on here

Not tied up or held hostage

the OAM was not anesthetized when he lost his arm

My wife figured it out

OAM was kinda trapped

not pinned down or tied up

OG did not necessarily cut OAM's arm off

OG is not a doctor

Location of the arm-removal is relevant

Job/preferences/wives whatever individually about the men not relevant

The other party was not necessarily related to the OG

Not a case of mistaken identity

Arm removal did not happen in the subway

Not a time traveler and did not wear women's clothing. (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Were the two men handcuffed together at some point in the past?
