October 1, 2008: Knife in the head
sweetwater Tuesday Sep 30 11:01 AM
Good news for the victim, but if somebody stuck a 5 inch knife into my head and it missed my brain I think I'd be insulted. And if I wasn't sufficiently insulted then my siblings would take on the job.

Who the hell stabs somebody in the head?

I've never tried to stab anyone through the forehead, but I'd expect it would be difficult to control a knife in such a maneuver. I'm a little amazed that a knife could penetrate through a skull in the first place.

I think it entered the skin and curved around the outside of the skull.

Wonder if the Ginsu company will cash in on this promotional opportunity.

This reminds me of the story of Phineas Gage, which I learned about in some psych class. In 1848 an accident sent an iron pole through his skull. Because he survived it was a look into brain injuries as it relates to personality.

Is he the guy that turned into a complete dick?

Why did they take the first X-ray with his sunglasses on? (Maybe they were Ray Bans?)

Here are photos of a soldier who survived being stabbed in the head with a 9 inch knife.

Now losing your knife in someone else's head is the wrong way to get into a knife fight.

How... why... ICK! How did that NOT kill him?!

And what, no "splitting headache" gags?
And this connects to the "knife advice" thread. This is what happens when an amateur takes a knife into a fight - inflicts a non-fatal wound to the head and loses his weapon, then drops his hat and phone and runs. With any weapon, you really need to know what you're doing.
Upper cut to the torso, either under the rib cage aiming upwards, or right of center, angled upwards to slide between the ribs. Or so I've heard.

Not only did they stab him in the head, they also got him with the purple sharpie.

You posted this for Oct 1, yesterday. Yesterday was September 30 for me. Probably a time zone thing.
