Large Northeastern Obama-Supporting Institution: Woman Survives After Husband Shoots Harpoon Through Her Mouth

Via the AP, Stan Lehman reporting.

In Rio De Janeiro, a man shot a harpoon gun through his wife's mouth, critically injuring her and hitting her "cervical spine."

This turns out to be not even close to what I thought it was, but rather a series of spinal bones at the base of the head.

He says it's an accident. The cops say it looks like it is indeed an accident. That said, the woman is still unconscious...

"[O]nce she fully recovers we will be able to question her and get a clearer picture of what happened."

Here's the part that's very surprising: Doctors say they expect a full recovery.

There's a picture to go with this -- not a picture, actually, but some kind of medical imaging technology image, showing her skull, spine, and the harpoon that pierced her.

I'm giving you a content warning even though it's actually not gory-- because it's actually not a picture. The image looks artificial because it is artificial -- it's a body scan made into an image.

Still, it's not exactly nice. But click here if you want to know what this might look like.

Early Weekend For Me/Open Thread: I'm taking tomorrow off to travel. And I'm tuckered out.

I've also invited the cobs to not sweat it and also take the day off. They may post, but it might be sparse content.

I'll see you guys again first thing Monday morning, or as you call it, "Monday at 1:38 PM."

Speaking of: I can't have people attacking the coblogs personally anymore. I can't. They do an awful lot of work here... including covering for me when I'm off.

They are important to the site. The site could not exist without them.

Official banhammer warning on personal attacks on them.

In simple economic terms, they're more valuable to me than any single reader. They keep the site alive.

Just keep that in mind, please.

And just stop trolling, period. I really am tired to death of trolls. And yes, just because you're on the right doesn't mean you're not a troll -- a troll is a state of mind. A troll is just a nasty little thing filled with hate who just can't wait to spoil someone's day on the anonymous forum of the internet.

That's my job. Back off.
