How Thick Is Your Skull?

Yes, it was another wild weekend on call.

Highlight was a 20-something guy I saw for a head injury. Get this, Grumpy fans:

He had a fight with his girlfriend outside a restaurant and said he was going to teach her a lesson.

So he began repeatedly banging HIS head against the concrete sidewalk until he was covered with blood. At that point the police and paramedics pulled up, and so he began banging his head repeatedly on the police car's windshield until he shattered it

He then went back to beating his head on the sidewalk, which continued until the cops tasered him and the paramedics gave him a dose of Valium.

The admitting diagnosis was "Self Assault"

Exactly what lesson his girlfriend learned from this is unclear, but I suspect it had something to do with getting a better boyfriend.

My wife and I are both fond of chickadees. Chickadees often repeat the same mate year after year (though they are known to "cheat").

One naturalist saw the male build a nest on a light pole instead of a tree. The next year the previous year's girl friend had a new boyfriend. Not as bad as your example, but what can you expect from a bird brain.

Well, that will show her now won't it. It never ceases to amaze me how stupid some people can be. He obviously didn't have much for sense any way, maybe the head pounding knocked some sense into him,
