PORTLAND, Ore. -- One day last year, a 33-year-old Oregon man picked up a nail gun and put it to his head.

Just what drove him isn't clear. Mental illness, personal problems and methamphetamine all probably played a role.

He fired. And fired again. And again. Twelve times.

Six nails clustered between his right eye and ear. The nailheads caught on the skull, the points pushing into the brain. He shot two nails below his right ear, four more through the left side of his face. At some point, he reloaded: Eight of the nails measured 1 1/2 inches, four had 2-inch shanks.

That's insane. I remember a similar story about a guy that had cut off his hand or something. I forget exactly, but he thought that shooting a few nails into his head would relieve the pain. I guess it took his mind off of it anyway. :?

It looks like he should have eliminated those personal problems on a permanent basis if he were not so lucky .... :shock:
