At least when it stabbed him, it was clean!!

Yep, clean into the front of his head!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

If we could ban stupidity, all world issues would be solved.

The lack of brain trauma indicates a lack of brain matter. A logical answer to cleaning a loaded speargun.

reminds of a quote by Noel Coward went something like this: Blew his brains out did you say? he must have been a rather good shot.

Seems more realistic that this dude was going to commit suicide with a harpoon gun. When said spear entered his eye, I imagine he reconsidered. I just don't see how someone could shoot themselves in the eye with a harpoon gun by accident. Give me a break.

Yes doctor, I was shaving the hair off of both of my wrists when somehow I slashed them both at the same time! Weird Eh?!

Yes doctor, I was trying to bleach my teeth and drank 6 gallons of bleach on accident.

Yes doctor, I was cleaning my bear trap when somehow it clamped onto my neck. I don't know what happened!

And how many accidental gun shootings and construction workplace injuries exist in the world? bloody millions, chances are he was holding it in a stupid fashion because he was trying to rush the cleaning of it (seriously think about it... you wouldn't at any time do any kind of operation whilst looking down the barrel of any gun let alone one roughly the same size as a automatic machine gun), a spear gun would be a pretty useless way to off yourself too. If several hundred people a year can shoot themselves with nailguns while they are on the job it's bound to be easy with all gun products no matter the usage you look into the barrel and perfom an operation chances are it's gonna hurt you lol shouldn't that be old facts.

why is everyone so &^%$ing concerned with "the end"...
new beginnings is what you should be concerned about...

we should ban harpoon guns from idiots you mean. This isnt a unexplained mystery, idiot fully defines this.luckier than someone winning the lottery is also another easily accurate description that makes it equally less an unexplained mystery
