It’s all in your head

May 23, 2008

Neurophilosophy delivers a number of x-rays of penetrating brain injury, including one chap who over a period of weeks drove 11 nails into his own head. Another whose cranium was penetrated by a large chunk of asbestos.  And another who wound up with a paintbrush inside his his head.  And more.  Analysis of treatment and outcome is included.

It’s always nice to learn something new from a post and here’s something I did not realize: intentional self-inflicted nail gun injuries are actually quite common.

    I was under the impression that intentional self-inflicted nail gun injuries were only quite common among neocons.

    I’ve got a headache now. Going out for some Advil. Back soon.
