    This guy is one lucky dude.

    I can just picture the scene in the hospital:

    “Are you the brain specialist? My brain hurts!”

    Well......
    He certainly used his head.
    He got the point.
    He hit the nail on the head.
    He nailed it.
    He drove home the point.
    "Like he needs another hole in the head".

    They said the nail came close to the area that controls motor functions. I wonder, if it spiked his punch?

    You must be young. The stupidity of people ceased to amaze me around 1990. Now I'm amazed when people DON'T act stupid.

    I'm not amazed much.

    Well, he didn't do it intentionally. :lol: The nail gun recoiled after its last shot and hit him in the head, which the sensor recognized as a flat surface and triggered the next nail to fire. He just thought he had been whacked in the head by the gun, and didn't even realize a nail had fired until he saw the x-ray.

    Okay, I had to wonder at first :lol: Esp when I know schmucks that would do something like that on a dare :p

    Sounds kinda like the guy that fell off a ladder, landed in a bush and ended up with a stick up his butt. Well next to it, but still... :eek: YOWSA

    Yeah, sounds like it was basically a freak accident -- more the result of dumb luck and clumsiness than stupidity.

    You have to wonder about the description of the incident, though. I mean, how could the thing recoil and then turn around 180 degrees to shoot a nail into his skull?

    When a nail gun is using a contact trip, it's very easy to fire a second nail directly on top of the first if you don't bounce the gun off the nail and on to the next spot. So, I imagine he fired a second nail directly into the first one, which caused the gun to recoil back into his head.

    It doesn't say in the article, but he also could have been underneath it firing upward.
