Brain Sharpener


That's an x-ray of Mary Townsen's head after she tripped and fell on a knife, which went through her eye socket and into her head. Remarkably, her eyeball was somehow untouched, but the knife became embedded in her brain. Because it missed her brain stem and the main artery to her brain, Mary lived to tell the tale.

No, she didn't have the TV station logo tattooed on her skull -- they added it to the image to be sure they get credit. [thanks to Mark Reardon for the contribution]
