Nails To The Head

So, this guy tried to commit suicide, didn’t die, and then walked around with these things in his head for a considerable period of time.

The unidentified 33-year-old man was suicidal and high on methamphetamine last year when he fired the nails – up to 2 inches in length – into his head one by one.

The nails were not visible when doctors first examined the man in the emergency room of an unidentified Oregon hospital a day later. Doctors were surprised when X-rays revealed six nails clustered between his right eye and ear, two below his right ear and four on the left side of his head.

The study did not say how long the nails were, and a hospital spokeswoman refused to release that information. A photo published in the study suggests the nails range from 1 1/2 to 2 inches long.
