Patrick Matheson was working on Hickey Lane earlier this month when she shot himself with a 3 1/2-inch nail, according to the Nantucket Inquirer.

Beyond the question of how you shoot yourself in the neck with a nail gun, how does that make your sex indeterminate?

The way it's worded, it seems more like a Schrodinger's cat thing. Both male and female until you pull down the pants to check and the wave collapses.

Well his "nail" was only 3 1/2 inches. That's borderline clenis.

Cool story: I actually shot myself in the hand with a nail gun.

propasaurus: Cool story: I actually shot myself in the hand with a nail gun.


My uncle did that, well through three fingers anyway. Somehow it missed any bones and he recovered just fine. My dad went to visit him in this hospital and said "We're here to see the idiot." They asked "Nail gun?" He said yep.

Anyway nothing permanent but he did say it bled out like a sonbiatch when they pulled it out.

This smacks of something. I mean, I know I've heard a similar story before. I'm sure you have, too. It's an older story, but it's not too bad. In fact, this is the time of year when we tell it most often. Well, now and the Spring.

But, seriously, this totes reminds me of ... something.

WHY CAN'T I THINK OF IT?!

Right between my thumb and forefinger. The idiot, however, was the ER doc who asked 'how'd you do that, with a hammer?'

Pfft. Big deal. I heard about this one carpenter that got nails in both hands and feet!

I was hoping this was a Chris Carpenter story, so we could turn it into a dumb baseball injuries thread.

However, this more reminds me of the time my dad ran over his coworker with a woodchipper. Yep, they're both scarred for life, one emotionally and one physically.

Probably not as stupid, but equally reckless.

haha that would be hard to do. You'd have to be REALLY hardcore to actually pound a nail into yourself.

I remember a temp that nailed his dick into his leg. He was not very happy.

I used to be a carpenter like you, then I took a nail in the neck.

We're missing the bigger story here. There is a carpenter named Patrick Matheson, not Juan or Miguel.

We're taking their trabajos!

Not a particularly good carpenter to hit yourself in the neck. Foot or hand, sure.

I shot myself in the farking hand with a nail gun, the long nails thankfully not the short spiny kind.

The end of the gun acts like a safety, unless it is pushed in pulling the trigger won't do anything. When the gun hit it wasn't fully engaged, so it didn't have full power.

Hit in my palm of all places, nail went straight up and stopped at the bone. Pulled it out, tetanus shot, no big deal (as in no drug test for leaving work). As time went by I thought I had nerve damage though, touching my palm would make my thumb wiggle uncontrollably, and the scar itched a lot.

One day I was talking on the phone, scratching the spot, and thought I was peeling up skin, it was a huge chunk of wax, pulled it out and all of the scary crap stopped.

meh. My boss nailed his foot to a roof once. (not something you do twice) He also lopped off his thumb and finger with a radial arm saw. Then there was the time he fell off a ladder with a chainsaw in his hands. Shiat happens.

Surgeons said had the nail entered his chest just a millimeter to the right, he would have likely bled to death and if the nail was an inch longer, it would have pierced his spinal cord, the newspaper reported.

and if it hit his ass and nailed his ass cheeks together he would have died too. or just been as full of shiat as the "if only a parsec to the right ..."

fark, if he/she could move like Neo this would never have happened.

Your boss is a dangerous idiot.

Stay far away from him. Eventually he will take you with him!

Rules for safely using a nail gun.

1. NEVER DISENGAGE THE SAFETY MECHANISM!!!
2. ALWAYS TEST THE SAFETY MECHANISM BEFORE WORKING!
3. NEVER EVER EVAR let any part of your body get in the potential trajectory of the nail even if the wood is a foot thick.
4. ALWAYS test your PSI to make sure your nail isn't going to punch right through the wood.
5. Be wary of rotten/thin/weak wood,
6. ALWAYS be aware of knots/screws/nails/etc that can alter the trajectory of the nail
7. Just like a firearm NEVER point it at something you don't intend to put a nail into

Uh... perhaps but the sh*t you described does not "just happen". Find a new crew to work on. Your boss is a dangerous, neglectful idiot.
