I remember reading the 9-11 threads on Fark...when they were current news.

Granted, there were several breaks since then, so to say I've been lurking for 12 years is a bit disingenuous.

I lurked from '06, didn't post till end of '10 I think. I was just starting a business then, so not much time to spend here. Business failed though, so let's talk about dead presidents!

HotWingAgenda: I'm guessing it was a graze?


Not necessarily.  People survive dead-on through-and-through headshots surprisingly often.  It's not unheard of for people missing large chunks of brain to be awake and communicative as the EMTs walk them to the ambulance.  (It's not the most likely outcome, but it's not particularly rare.)

Small rounds in particular (.22 and the like) apparently often get in but can't get out again, so they bounce off the inside of the skull a couple of times and don't do the catastrophic damage a straight-through large-caliber track with an exit wound would involve.

22 caliber is the decisive choice for close-range hitmen, specifically because once it enters the skull it doesn't have enough kinetic energy left to leave, but has enough to keep bouncing around and scrambling the brains. Also, less loud than something like a .45.

Came for the "Bones" reference, left happy, unlike the cranky person who a) posted something that sounds nothing like the actual show (maybe thinking of "CSI Miami"?) and b) should just not watch it.  Better for the blood pressure.

Bonus pun tie-in:  On "Bones" the Booth character is actually related to John Wilkes.  He's not crazy about the fact. (He's been described as a "direct descendant" or JWB, but that's impossible, since Booth had no children)

I don't. My wife does. And you're right. It's very realistic.

So... usually, when a person survives a gunshot to the head with little to no loss in cognitive function or mobility- and this guy apparently never even passed out- it means that the bullet didn't hit anything particularly vital. So... given the level of function this guy maintained, am I wrong in assuming there must not be much of anything vital in his head?

I keep seeing this about .22s "bouncing around inside the skull" and I gotta call BS on that. Doesn't happen. If a slug doesn't have enough energy to penetrate the skull it might bounce off once, a little, but that's it.

One of the first well-studied TBIs was a guy who had a 1.25-inch-thick iron bar blown right through his skull.  As he was being treated he vomited and "the effort of vomiting pressed out about half a teacupful of the brain, which fell upon the floor".  And then there's the frontal lobotomy, which originally was literally what the roots imply -- the severing of large parts of the frontal lobes from the rest of the brain.  You can still function relatively well to casual observation even after some rather horrifying brain injuries.

No, you don't get the fabled "like a pinball machine", but you do get sudden path changes a lot.  From the reading I've done, surgeons hate .22 (and they see a lot of .22LR) because the victims typically present with long, hard-to-follow tracks to bullets (or more often, lots of small bullet fragments) still inside... somewhere.  And then a week later they die of infections and therefore aren't even any use as organ donors.

Apparently you get deflection off the front more than the back, as the frontal bone is thicker and harder.

At least one account I read awhile back had the bullet entering the skull at an angle, glancing off the inside surface, and following the curve of the skull until coming to rest halfway around from the entrance point.
