SHAWNEE, Kan. (June 10) - 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.

OUCH.. that's one guy I wouldn't wanna be around when he's working with a nail gun!

He should work on his aim a little more, and shoot those nails where they're supposed to go, and into not his head!

I'm sure they're also gonna nail him for his bad aim!

If he gets into an argument with his wife, she can now really say "You think like somebody with a hole in his head!"

Actually, I'm glad he survived, and I hope he recovers without any problems.

"......If he gets into an argument with his wife, she can now really say "You think like somebody with a hole in his head!..." Another 'go to your room', Mike!
I heard about that on the 'idiot files' here on the local radio station. It was the talk of the store a couple of days ago, lol.

Does he end up in life as being an "airhead?"
Did he live because there was nothing in there?

Would it be fun to get nailed while your working?

I recall seeing a similar story here about another person who did the same thing, and he survived.

This made me think, is it even possible for somebody to shoot himself in the side of the head with a nailgun? Assuming the guy wasn't drunk, wasn't high on drugs, and didn't want to commit suicide, he would have had to aim the gun squarely at the side of his head!

And push on it hard enough to release the safety. When I saw this on TV my first thought was he and his buddy were in a nail gun fight and he lost.

LOL.. A clawhammer? Just the thought of using a clawhammer to pull a nail out of somebody's head sounds grotesque.. but I guess it can't be as bad as the nail going in at the speed a nailgun fires it!
