Submitted by: eugenius 9 years ago in Weird

He fired a 2.5-inch nail in his head but says he feels OK after a doctor used a claw hammer to remove it--a claw hammer?

Well, what ELSE are you gonna use to get a nail out? A screwdriver? Belt sander? Jigsaw?

you would think that the thousands of dollars these doctors make that they would at least have some sort of tool better than a hammer to get a nail out of a person. can you imagine the doctor yelling out....HEY SOMEBODY RUN TO HOME DEPOT AND GET ME A HAMMER TO GET THIS NAIL OUT THIS GUYS HEAD!

Apparently getting hit in the head isn`t a sure way to die. There a countless stories of people getting head trauma, even BULLETS straight in the forehead and being able to live for days.

Of course he didn`t feel pain, the brain does not have nerves; only the surrounding area does. The brain shouldn`t feel pain...

Hitaki, I was born in Kansas and raised in California. After visiting relatives, not to be mean, but... uhhh... I`m REALLY glad I didn`t grow up in Kansas.

It`s understandable that he didn`t feel pain, at least. Your brain was so few pain receptors that it literally does not feel pain at all. I`d think all the major pain would have been in the nail going through flesh and bone, but apparently it just stings? Odd.

Why is everyone insulting Kansas? Seriously.
That could have happened in California or soemthing; would people say Californians are dumb? Oh, of course not. `Cause that`s where all the stars are. X_x

his survival would be surprising if it weren`t the whole Kansas thing.
Since he apparently has money to build, and afford some medical care, if he had a brain he wouldn`t be in Kansas.

this is probably the fifth version of this i`ve seen so far. man gets a knife, grinding wheel, nail, axe, or something else stuck in his head and lives! for the record, if a sharp object enters the brain cavity, that person will has a fair chance at living. if the person is shot, then that person will most likely die.
