Editor's Choice - Picture of the Day - August 29, 2011

Shears
In this image provided by the University Medical Center in Tucson, a CT scan shows a pair of pruning shears embedded in the head of an 86-year-old Green Valley, Ariz., man before it was removed by Medical Center surgeons in Tucson on July 30, 2011. Leroy Luetscher was accidentally impaled through his eye socket after falling on the shears while working in his yard, the handle penetrating his eye socket and reaching down into his neck. He is expected to make a full recovery. (AP Photo/University Medical Center, Tucson, Arizona)

Lesson here? Don't buy the cheapo shears...Felco or bust.

Full recovery? Including the eye?

That's horrible... But HOW does that happen!? Of course, I'm the guy who pulled a fence post driver, (30lbs of iron) full force onto his noggin when it caught the edge of the post when I went a little to high on... It hurt a little- I admit.
