Miss. woman gets shot in head, but makes tea
Somebody is watching out for her....wow!
The crazy thing about this, is that while a small object like a bullet can go through the brain without doing any serious damage, bullets usually are usually travelling fast enough to cause a shockwave that seriously tears up soft tissue, like gray matter.
Isn't there a space between the two halves of our brain down the center? I've heard of cases where a person has had a fourth of their brain removed due to gun injury, and we can live without a portion or something of the upper area of our brain.
Freaky man, maybe the tea had reviving properties?
That's what you get for using a .380. There's a reason even James Bond has moved on.
Phineas Gage would like a word. I'd bet this woman won't be completely free of sequelae.
prince's father shot himself and lived
Come to think of it, I think I remember reading something about that.
damn , but i have to say if i was shot in the head and survived id like id want something stronger than tea
Good Grief! She made herself tea afterward? Is this after or before she went to the hospital? Lord Knows, I'd been bookin' it to the Hospital (or would've that made blood gush from my head?). The tea would have to wait.
Her husband attempted a muder/suicide. But by some fluke the bullet passed perfectly between the hemispheres of her brain. Causing little damage. And she barely noticed because your brain doesn't have pain receptors.
Haha that story is the first thing we learned in Neuro back in Med School. Personally I always thought Kluver Bucy and Pick's Disease were more interesting.
I hope she poured the tea on her head.
My plan of making an invincible army of brains is starting to come together!
I never knew that a bullet could pass directly through the 2 hemispheres. Really odd.
Damn. I guess you could say she got one hell of a headache from that, huh?
*Gets hit with rocks from bad pun*
I keed, I keed! Anywho, this woman should get a medal for having the balls (despite being of the opposite sex) for shrugging off a bullet wound to the head. Though I do wonder what kind of tea she makes...
