An unfortunate method

Another hospital story:

Attempted suicide by nailgun. I saw the x-ray. It looked something like this, except through the side of the head.


  1. I hate it when that happens.


  2. So, how many nails does one need to shoot into ones head for the attempt to be sucessful? Or is it really more location than quantity? Yowza.

  3. This is generally a poor choice for suicide as brain damage is the more probable result. For it to work, I think you'd have to get a nail through the brainstem causing the heart to stop.
