Man shoots 3 inch nail in to his head

A construction worker defied the odds by surviving a particularly nasty nail gun accident.

Jeff Luptak stunned doctors by being more concerned about saving his hat then the 3 inch nail protruding from his skull. "When I reached up to get [the nail gun] I pulled it down and I heard it go off," he said. "I immediately felt this pressure in my skull so I knew I'd just got shot in the head." After being flown 500 miles to St. Paul's hospital in Minnesota brain surgeons were able to successfully remove the nail from his skull.

"Shooting a three inch nail into your skull, sounds like a painful experience, but when construction worker Jeff Luptak accidentally did exactly this, he surprisingly reported that he 'didn't feel any pain."

i ran into a nail on a construction site and the nail went deep into my skull on the upper right side of my head when i was around 10 years old( I was chasing a friend, he managed to dodge the nail, it was too late for me to see). I remember very well that i didnt feel it when it happened, i was bleeding heavily and i had to be rushed to the hospital. It was a very weird experience because i didnt feel it and this was my skull! Same thing happened to him!

Yea, the brain doesn't feel pain....Which is a good thing I guess. What's with all these people shooting nails into their brains? This seems to be happening one or twice every year now. Even more startling is I can't remember any of them being killed by it. Note to self: If chased by a monster, do not shoot in head with nail gun. Monster will keep coming.

Man is obviously a Republican - so his hat is undoubtedly worth more than his head -- probably more reasonable, as well.

One morning in Africa I shot a wilderbeast in my pajamas. What he was doing in my pajamas I'll never know.
