 :o Here's the link to a truly bizarre story;



Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep insights can be winnowed from deep nonsense. ~ Carl Sagan

"...man has an irrepressible tendency to read meaning into the buzzing confusion of sights and sounds impinging on his senses; and where no agreed meaning can be found, he will provide it out of his own imagination." ~ Arthur Koestler

'he didnt notice it until he looked in the mirror'

i think im going to spend more time in the mirror from now on.   no telling what is lodged in my brain.

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

hope his IQ isnt lowered from this experience..

i once read an article about this boy who lost half his brain from a gun shot. He actually survived, and with plenty of surgery, made a full recovery.

fantastic, since half his brain had to be removed so the other half can re-wire itself.

Sounds like this story when the guy was said to have shot out his tumor.  ::)

"The nail apparently ricocheted off a piece of metal, went through his eye socket and lodged in his brain."

Personally I'm not buying it, as it is too bizarre to be believable in my opinion. ::)
