brain

When magnets are applied to a specific part of the brain (the posterior parietal cortex region, which is involved with planning physical movements), researchers at the University of California Berkeley found that their 33 right-handed volunteers started favoring their left hands for smaller tasks instead.

Chorlton, United Kingdom – A CT scan reveals a bullet that entered Peter Hesford’s skull while he was in his garden. Police are working on a theory that a gunman may have fired a shot in the air from a few streets away only for the bullet to land in Mr Hesford’s head as he looked up.

Full Story – HERE

Lucky he’s alive!  The bullet must have just coasted along the top of the inside of his skull to end up at it’s final resting place.

His speech is slurred, his memory has deteriorated and he spends most of the time sleeping.

Hopefully he makes a full recovery.  It would be a shame if he didn’t all because of someone not following one of the cardinal rules of knowing your backstop!  Maybe the shooter was aiming at something solid, but people need to take into account where the bullet will go if they miss.

A 2005 study by graduate students at MIT determined that a tin foil hat could either amplify or attenuate radio frequencies depending on frequency.

And I just find this out in 2010? Damn it… :lol:

Wait… is this just to trick us into taking off our tinfoil hats because they actually DO work?  Definitely something to consider :P

So much for the standard “I lost all my guns in a tragic boating accident”
