missed all his vital parts.

Doesn't matter how long it was. Only 8 inches or so are actually in his head. The rest is just for show.

Thank god he didn't take it to the knee.

I knew a man who had a hole clean through his whole shoulder, once.
Used to keep a spare hankie in there."

Yeah, but can he still play the banjo???

Perhaps he'll spearhead research into avoiding future fishing related injuries.

9beers: I just saw this on the news, farking crazy. Not sure how anybody can be so farking stupid as to have a spear pointing at them when loading the gun though.


It's Florida.

more like a spearing injury doc...

It's the girth that hurts you, not the length.

But which side of his brain did it hit?
Also, did it hit any major blood vessels?

TFA wasn't clear on these points.

I have seen union strikes before, but they rarely result in spears to the head.

Now, I heard of a pacifist getting speared in the side, but that story can't be corroborated.

Guns don't kill people. Neither do spear guns, in case clarification is needed.

Good thing he didn't have a brain in there or he could have been seriously hurt.

Right side, no major blood vessels from another article.

The first rule of speargunnery is don't load it above water.
That's because sooner or later it will go off and if you don't hit something good and meaty like your friend's brain, the cord will yank the spear back and it might hit you.

Well, he's from Florida, so it's not like there was anything inside his head to begin with.
 
2012-06-19 03:51:32 PM
You would think that a three-foot fishing spear through your head would pretty much be the end of you, not for this teenager

.....until his parents get the medical bills, they all end up living on the streets, and the kid turns to a life of crime because of desperation and guilt.
 
2012-06-19 04:00:27 PM
Anybody see a photo of his face? Look at the x-rays and tell me those teeth don't have "durrrrrr" written all over them.

Not to worry. They'll just sue the company that made the speargun.

Remember kids, never load, or take a loaded spear gun out of the water, and have the safety on before loading it.

/derper just got derpier.

I think the ever important "don't aim it at your friend's face" lesson was also skipped.

It is Florida. That may be a step up

I blame it all on the spear chuckers.

The spear firing devices, that is.
