Bullet Lodged In Head For 82 Years

A man who was accidentally shot in the head 82 years ago has gone through life without suffering any ill effects, despite the bullet being lodged deep in his head. The Russian was shot by his brother when he was three, the bullet coming to rest in an opening at the base of the skull where the spinal cord passes. Doctors opted against operating at the time because they believed the risk of severe nerve damage was too high and, against the odds, he made a full recovery, according to a report published in the New England Journal of Medicine. When the 85-year-old, who went on to become an award-winning engineer, recently went for a cat scan following a heart problem doctors noticed the bullet but, to their astonishment, they could not find any evidence of neural damage.” w/ photo

Distribution of the drug’s active pharmaceutical ingredient is rigidly allotted to manufacturers each year by the DEA. The system is designed to stop the creation of stockpiles that could be diverted for illegal use… Adderall manufacturers claim the DEA does not always approve enough material in time for them to supply customers.” w/ photo

“Everybody knows that actual scientific advances have started out as science fiction, including Radar and geostationary satellites. Your tablet computer is basically right out of Star Trek. But that doesn’t mean that every scientific idea expressed in science fiction is automatically true. In fact, science fiction is full of beautifully nonsensical ideas about the universe — which make no sense but are so beautiful, or silly, or exciting that you have to love them anyway. Here are 10 wonderfully insane theories expounded in science fiction.” w/ photos
