Now I'm pretty sure if someone had stabbed me in the jaw, broken the damaging implement and a blade stuck in my brain I'd seek a little more help than Panadol.
So many fuckwits, so little time. Have a wonderful weekend folks. Dinner with friends tonight, massive garden clean up tomorrow and hopefully it'll stay dry for Tropfest on Sunday. Now . . where's that chardy. Where's your head at?Updated: Thursday, 17 Feb 2011, 11:29 AM ESTYUNNAN, China (CNN/CCTV) - Doctors in China have recently succeeded in taking a 10 cm. dagger blade from the head of a man who had been suffering from an unknown headache for more than four years.

Mr. Ni came to the hospital seeking treatment of what he suspected of aural disease. After careful examination, doctors found a metal blade in his head.
"We checked his mouth, but no wound or scar has been found. It is very strange as to how the blade got into his head," said Xu Wen, deputy director of the stomatology department of the People's Hospital in Yuxi city.
It turned out that Mr. Ni was stabbed in the lower right jaw when fighting with a robber four years ago.
After that, he had suffered frequent headaches of unknown causes. His mouth would bleed and it felt difficult to swallow food. His voice also became hoarse and he spoke gibberish.
But he had had hospital examinations on several occasions and no cause of the symptoms was found.
"As time goes on, I used injections to kill pains in head and ears," said Mr. Ni.
Doctors were able to remove the blade. Fortunately, the blade did not touch the brain artery and important facial nerves and that has kept him alive.
Mr. Ni is now receiving recuperating treatment in the hospital.
