What Were You Whining About Again?

Okay, before you start complaining about your morning aches and pains, take one moment to think about Patrick Lawler, a carpenter in Colorado who thought he had a tooth ache.

He went for six days trying to treat the "tooth ache" with ice cream before he went to the dentist complaining about the roof of his mouth being sore.

He didn't have a tooth ache...he had a 4 1/2 inch nail embedded in the roof of his mouth.

He apparently shot himself with a nail gun and didn't realize it. The nail literally went into his brain and nearly hit his eye.

Doctors pulled it out. He's going to be okay.

Get up and go to work.
