    OAK LAWN, Ill. (AP) — Gail Glaenzer still can't believe that her fiancé unknowingly shot a nail into his skull, let alone that he posted a picture of the X-ray on Facebook during his ambulance ride between hospitals for surgery.

    I'm glad I don't own a nail gun. I need a nail in my brain like I need another hole in the head. :banghead: <---- Me trying to dislodge the nail if it ever happens to me.
