Moral of the story: Don't get shot in the head, execution-style

Originally uploaded by Ian__.

This is a CT scan of an unfortunate gentleman's head. His occiput is on the bottom and his forehead on the top in this image; a bullet entered in the back and traversed his entire brain, exiting above his left eyebrow. He did not do well.

Don't play with guns, or play with people who play with guns.

Hi Phoenix! Thanks for the Thanksgiving greeting, by the way -- I hope you had a great holiday too!

It's great to see a new post on here! Okay, so November isn't exactly "new," but I used to check your blog every day way back in... oh, who's counting anyway? I'm not only a stranger to the medical field, but I find the stuff bores me immensly.

Still, though, you can crack me up with the best of them. I decided to take a look and THANK GOD! More stuff to keep me from studying for my finals!

Thanks for the comment! The medical field bores me too.

I like the mohawk, by the way -- I would get inventive with my hair, too, if my chairman wouldn't fire me. It's practically a program requirement for us to shave every day, for f*^#sake. But then who ever said the field of neurosurgery is a bastion of self expression?
