SEOUL, Korea -- The X-ray picture shows a 5-centimeter nail stuck in an unidentified South Korean patient's skull Thursday, Dec. 2, 2004. According to a Seoul hospital, doctors found the nail after the man came to the hospital, complaining about a severe headache. They speculate that the nail stuck in the man's head four years ago in an accident but the man didn't know about it. The nail was removed in a surgery last Saturday. (12/07/04 AP photo)

My g/f attended a seminar a couple of months ago where one of the lectures included a similar x-ray, except this nugget had 6-8 nails in his head! He had put them in himself, with a nail gun, sometime during the previous 6 months. There were marks on his forehead (the healed entry wounds) so they did an x-ray and found the nails.

Apart from being in perfect physical health, he had gone to the hospital complaining of double vision!! 8O

on a slightly different tack :?

In a bar on the Strip at senelager (1980's), there was a block of wood which squaddies used to sit and hit 4" nails in with a piddley little hammer.

... anyone know why? :?:

They were playing "NAILS".It's a game;you take turns belting the nail with the not quite adequate hammer ,the winner is the one who manages to drive it in completely.Loser gets the beers in :lol:

Or,alternatively,they were nailing each others wedding tackle to the block.It was very popular among some gentlemen a number of years ago"OPERATION SPANNER as the police called it)
