Yeah.. uhh.. ouch.

I put one into my hand once.. a nice sized 10D crate nail.. those things have wires on them that act like fishooks once they are in you.. it's hard to just "pull em back out" especially when they are through tendons.

what a dink.

Could that story have been written any worse? Was he showing the woman how he was going to kill her or was he showing somebody else how he was going to kill the woman? Where did he get shot? Did the nail ricochet or did he actually point the thing at himself and pull trigger?

At any rate, it shouldn't be too difficult for the police to poke holes in whatever defense he makes.

There oughta be Darwin Jr awards for folks who harm themselves but through no fault of their own dont have enough follow through to qualify for a full Darwin award.

I hear they are really going to make a point of pinning this on him (after all the details are hammered out)

This makes no sense. The whole point of a Darwin Award is that you don't survive to reproduce. The only way a Darwin Jr. Award would work is if their acts of stupidity were so bad that they remove any chance of ever enticing any member of the opposite sex to mate with them for ever and ever. I.e. Non-Fatal-but-non-reproductive stupidity.

I thought there already were Honorable Mentions for people stupid enough to qualify for a Darwin, but who didn't quite manage to kill themselves?

That can still technically be a Darwin. If you remove your physical ability to reproduce through an act of idiocy, but survive, it's a Darwin.

There are, but never as funny as the real deal for some reason.

Was it a powder-actuated nail gun?

Snoop would like to know.

From TFA:

An unidentified woman at the home told a deputy in sign language that Vasquez had hurt her and threated to kill her with the nail gun. She tried to call 911, but Vasquez allegedly grabbed the phone from her and threw it, authorities said.

So she had to tell the deputy all this in sign language, yet she had previously called 911? I can only assume the was going to tap out her call for help in Morse code on the mouthpiece.

/that or inarticulate groans
//Helen Keller once fell down a well and broke three fingers yelling for help
