    yet people still die daily from falling and hitting their heads on the ground. these are statistical flukes, not the norm.

    as far as the knives go, the brain is not a standard vital target.

    and vital strikes dont need to kill you, just put you out of commission. twelve yr. olds can generate enough force to kill each other with temple punches....which happens alot more than people surviving rods and such through the cranium.

    These guys just got lucky. If the knife had gone in any further, or at a slightly different angle, the guy's cartoid artery would have ruptured and he'd probably have died on the spot. Or maybe it could have slashed up his temporal lobe.

    God damn you guys. Can we all at least agree that this man is living proof that it's safe to jam knives in your buddy's head?

    You guys forget that the knife has no chi...no wonder it wasn't lethal. If instead of a steel rod Phineas Gage had had his skull impaled by oh, say, the giant erect penis of an 80 year old Chi Kung master, he'd've just been one more dead construction worker and I could've slept through those ten minutes of Physical Psychology.
    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

    Bah, nothing new here. We all know that lots of people live and thrive without a single functioning neuron.

    To broaden our collection of invincibles (this time nail related):

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080611/...sp2w10wvehOrgF

    SHAWNEE, Kan. - A suburban Kansas City man accidentally fired a 2.5-inch nail into the top of his head, but says he now feels fine after a doctor used a claw hammer to remove it. The mishap occurred Friday while George Chandler, of Shawnee, and a friend were working on a backyard project.


    The nail gun hose became tangled, causing the powerful tool to fire once. Chandler said Monday he told his friend he didn't know where the nail went, but he felt a sting on the top of his head.

    Soon they discovered that the nail was driven into Chandler's skull, so they called an ambulance. He was rushed to a hospital, where a doctor used a common claw hammer to remove the nail, Chandler said.

    Chandler said he feels "very lucky, very, very lucky" to have escaped serious injury.

    On topic though:

    Awesome. DIY brain surgery: Contact your nearest hardware shop today!

    I've heard several stories about this kind of thing over the years. They always freak me out, having a knife (nail/pipe/other metalic objects) sticking out of my head remains a cringe worthy mental image.


    Chaos? Panic?... Disorder??
