"See kiddies, the bullet entered here, and the resulting force pulled my whole face to the left"

I'm guessin it was a .22. Shocked he ended up perfectly healthy and it didn't brain his damage.

"Mr. Pace was 8 years old when his brother, Marvin, accidentally shot him in October 1917."

I doubt that was an accident, then. I bet Marvin was a Bolshevik.

I bet this was an accident and the shooters first reactions was "OH MY GOD, DO NOT TELL MOM...or I'll kill you."

Shame to see he suffered brain damage.

Marvin, he was a friend of mine
But couldn't shoot for shiat
His aim sucked every time.

Marvin tried to blow out Bill's brains
Just opened up Bill's mind

He's very angry, but also very patient.

He needed that record like he needed a hole in the head.

In Marvin's defense, the bag of Skittles his brother was carrying could have been mistaken for a gun.

77 years later, poetic justice would rear its ugly head when Marvin was accidentally shot in the head by John Travolta.

If he hadn't been acting so Lawlis, he wouldn't have been shot.

It was the loveliest party that I've ever attended
If anything was broken I'm sure it could be mended
My head can't tolerate this bobbing and pretending
Listening to some bullet-head and the madness that he's saying

Marv died back in 88

Just proves that you don't want to shoot a texan in the head if you want to kill them.

Walked around with glass in my foot for 3 weeks, so meh.

I was disappointed when I RTFA, thought he had been sleeping since 1917 and just now died, being a vegetable the entire time.

octopied: Walked around with glass in my foot for 3 weeks, so meh.


Walked around with windshield glass from a car accident buried in the back of my head for 3 months. Found it by running my hand through my hair one day and slashing my finger open. Kind of a WTF moment. Turns out, the glass destroyed a nerve cluster for a 2 inch circle on the back of my head. I got the glass removed, but I still have no sensitivity on the back of my head in that area.
