Keep your finger off the trigger until

I learned a new way that people can shoot themselves last night. Apparently, one is able to stick their face in front of a clay pigeon thrower and pull the trigger. Fun times in the ER.

I received an excellent review of facial nerve anatomy while removing the shrapnel. Lots of sutures. Lots and lots of sutures. No intracranial bleeding. That would have really killed his buzz.

How did it activate (fling)? I have great respect for my flinger. I have an electric one now so I don’t have to pull the big flinger back against the tension of that giant garage door spring anymore, very scary.

The story that I was told is that someone jokingly said “pull” and he pulled the trigger mechanism. Alcohol was involved so who really knows.
