FTFA: when an electric nail accidentally hit his head

I don't know about that. Nails are vengeful, angry, and unpredictable creatures.

Bit stupid and pointless, if you ask me.

The next son of a biatch who uses the term 'nail-shooter' in my presence shall receive one free flat-bar to the head. TO THE HEAD.

I'm still trying to figure out how a nail, excuse me, electric nail is going to fix a drill.

How do you repair an electric drill with a nail gun? An don't all nail guns have a safety collar that has to be depressed to work? I would guess this is Darwinism at work.

This is too stupid for words.

Everyone knows that you use a drill to repair a nail gun, not the other way around.

An Indian construction worker in Saudi Arabia? I'm sure everything about that situation was completely legit, that he was a fully-trained professional working in a "safety-first" environment.

Not the electric ones. They're surprisingly mellow, usually.

Someone did something incredibly stupid and died.

The only part I'm lost on here is what exactly went wrong.

Fixing a drill with a nail gun and gets a nail in the brain, killing him?

Does that sound like "accidentally falling down an elevator shaft and on to some bullets" to anyone else as well?

I'm still wondering how and why the hell anyone would use a nail-gun to repair an electric drill. The guy's dead now, so I guess we'll never know.

Odd, I don't get squicked by gore or the ridiculous "porn" that Rule 34 invariably brings to my eyes eventually. I've stared into the abyss and it's stared back and we both kind of went "meh" and got on with our days. But that made my skin crawl and my stomach try to come up because the x-ray forced me to really think about what happened there.

Provided that's real, that's a hell of a way to kill someone. That's... a lot of nails.

I can try to reproduce the accident so we can know. I can alot of nailguns and even a broken drill. I'll start with a framing gun. Be right bac

If he's wearing a Vault 3 Utility Jumpsuit and has the Jury Rigging perk, I don't see what the problem is?
