I read before that if ones finger is cut off,it can be reattached. but if it is bitten off by a human,it can not.

Explain why?

Maybe the nerve endings are "crushed" instead of severed?

Because you wouldn't get it back for about 8 hours.

1. A cut is straight, a bite is jagged.
2. Infection.

You specifically?
You'd swallow on instinct
I kid, I kid.
I honestly don't know. Maybe the guy whose finger you bit off would be pissed and beat your shit apart?
Anyway, how is this relevant?
Why are you biting people's fingers off?

infection and tissue trauma.

It's not like you whacked the finger off with a ginsu knife... human teeth are not that sharp, and you get a lot of blunt trauma with a bite of that sort.  Humans also have extremely bacteria-rich mouths... which further decreases your odds of replantation.

Unless you're a shark posting on a web forum (which would be fucking awesome), you have very dull teeth, which would kill the nerves in your "enemies" finger.

Next time, try blading at roughly 45.
