Yes, really! From BBC News - Man shoots nail into brain without noticing
Wow. Glad he's okay. He's lucky it hit where it did and that it didn't do a whole lotta damage.
Sounds like a he dodged a bullet on this one, if he appears to have his motor control and mental faculties. Or a nail. And didn't dodge it at all. Whatever, you know what I mean.
The man is lucky to be alive.
You hit the nail on the head.
Well there are no pain receptors in the brain ut you would have thought he would have felt it pierce his skull
People have bee known to survive pipes through the brain with minimal brain damage (although some mental changes are noticable)
Didn't this happen before? It sounds really familiar.
It's amazing how people can survive these kind of things.
What? That's kind of hard to believe. I used to be a framer and have seen some nasty nail gun accidents! To not have felt something like that, just seems a little odd...Anyway he's definitely lucky!
What a miracle.
Darn it, somebody already made the "hit the nail on the head" joke.
It's a great thing that it missed the most important parts of his brain though, truly a miracle.
I recall a story of how a man shot himself in the head with a nail and didn't realize it was there until years later.
Lucky dude, good thing it wasn't the last nail in the coffin........
Anyone? no, ok.
Well, looks like he dodged a nail.
Seriously, he's incredibly lucky he survived.
[BUM]I took a nail gun to the head once![/BUM]
No, no I didn't.
Ouch. At least on the bright side, he's alive.
Yeah, this makes me think of Phineas Gage. Though this doesn't seem to be as severe as Gage's situation, they'll definitely want to pay close attention to make sure his personality doesn't degrade.
I'm pretty sure it did.
