    Brains aren't really important

    Or at least, it appears so. *warning - contains injury photos*

    And yes, he was wearing his helmet.

    "a miracle"? this is a miracle if it's in the book of job. i would instead call this awful, horrible luck.

    it entered a 'non-eloquent' area of the brain? now that's funny.

    that photo make me say OUCH! I've seen injuries kind of like that - makes one wonder how quick one's important brain cells can "slide" outtatheway!

    One boy (he was @ 20) I know put his head where it shouldn't have been, and ended up with an iron rod through his head - entered just below & in back of his front teeth, and exited slightly to the left, but through the top of his skull. No coma. No brain damage. Just a few months recovery. Unfortunately, he was - in my book - an idiot BEFORE this happened (or his head would NOT have been in the way!... work related injury), and his recovery didn't change anything there! Then there are the kids who slam thier heads into a tree and become vegies.

    As with mud, life, too, slides by.
