FTFA: when an electric nail accidentally hit his head

I don't know about that. Nails are vengeful, angry, and unpredictable creatures.

Bit stupid and pointless, if you ask me.

The next son of a biatch who uses the term 'nail-shooter' in my presence shall receive one free flat-bar to the head. TO THE HEAD.

I'm still trying to figure out how a nail, excuse me, electric nail is going to fix a drill.

Man, I really hate when that happens!

How do you repair an electric drill with a nail gun? An don't all nail guns have a safety collar that has to be depressed to work? I would guess this is Darwinism at work.

OK, I'm going with "severe shock".

This is too stupid for words.

Everyone knows that you use a drill to repair a nail gun, not the other way around.

An Indian construction worker in Saudi Arabia? I'm sure everything about that situation was completely legit, that he was a fully-trained professional working in a "safety-first" environment.

Not the electric ones. They're surprisingly mellow, usually.

The only part I'm lost on here is what exactly went wrong.

Fixing a drill with a nail gun and gets a nail in the brain, killing him?

Does that sound like "accidentally falling down an elevator shaft and on to some bullets" to anyone else as well?

Odd, I don't get squicked by gore or the ridiculous "porn" that Rule 34 invariably brings to my eyes eventually. I've stared into the abyss and it's stared back and we both kind of went "meh" and got on with our days. But that made my skin crawl and my stomach try to come up because the x-ray forced me to really think about what happened there.

Provided that's real, that's a hell of a way to kill someone. That's... a lot of nails.

I can try to reproduce the accident so we can know. I can alot of nailguns and even a broken drill. I'll start with a framing gun. Be right bac

I'm guessing that Indian manual laborers in Saudi Arabia are about the equivalent of Mexican laborers in the United States. Very hard working, but often low skilled laborers with extremely lazy and often incompetent supervisors, and generally poorly maintained tools. It broke, he was told to fix it fast or lose his job, and he chose poorly.

And I'm guessing that Saudi Arabia is a tea party paradise, too. Probably no OSHA regulations or socialist worker's compensation fund, and when foreign laborers get hurt I bet they get shipped home to die quietly.

Thank you for fulfilling the requirement that every thread must be wrenched into the political realm by some dope who can't find the Politics tab. And kudos for adding the "smaller government means you want anarchy" lefty meme, we certainly can't do without that.
