    A friend of mine ended up with a 2" staple in his head, same thing, surgery to remove it. Came from his brother on a ladder, slipping........talk about sibling rivalry, eh?

    I was in an ER when a guy was wheeled in who had shot himself in the left foot right through all of the main toe joints except the last toe with a 16d ring shank nail. The ER doc put an x-ray in a viewer and asked me to have a look. The doctor asked how I would remove the nail. I told him to cut off the foot and send it to a machine shop. I didn't know that the poor guy that shot himself could hear us until he let out a wail. He, no doubt, thought that I was another doctor.

    According to the newspaper report "... accidentally shot himself in the back of the head with a nail gun Tuesday morning..." I'm still trying to figure out how you crank your arm up to where your nail gun is pointing to the back of your head.

    So if your brain can't feel a 3 1/2" nail embedded in there, why is it that some of the questions I am asked at the counter end up hurting my brain?

    some of the guys around the office have been asking the same question...a few think his fiancee may have assisted him, or there may have been a been a "shed contractor" hiding behind a grassy knoll.

    He obviously had the pressure set way too high, or he was way too high.

    You should probably see the doctor.

    I almost took at job there.. having said that.. looking at the angle of entry, how does one shoot a nail from a nail gun into the back of one's own head? Stretch Armstrong arms, maybe?
