Yeah, I saw a thing in the news about the guy. Apparently his nail gun went off and he didn't even realize he'd shot himself. HE finally went in WITH A TOOTHACHE!

I guess it's a good thing it wasn't a finish nail.

Actually, you'd be surprised at how common injuries like that are (I've seen something like four personally, not counting the ones my colleagues have seen while I was working at the same place, same time, etc.).

And for as bad as they look, they cause surprisingly little late sequelae unless they hit something sensitive (like the eye, or a blood vessel, like that) on the way in. One of the guys I took care of had (deliberately) shot himself in *both* temples, as a suicide attempt. He came in by ambulance, but only because someone had found him; he could have walked. His only problem was that he had a mild headache, and he was very unhappy that he wasn't dead.

Is this a hoax? Daaaaamn! I've hear of men trying to commit suicide with a pistol and only severing the optical. This is just absurd.
