I'm not sure what kind of woodworking you do, but I've been doing
woodworking for 30+ years and I'm not sure that I know how many nails
it would take to assuradly kill the victim. Your workplace is clearly
different from any I've been around if that knowledge is part of your
woodworking background! ;-)
I started out with nothing and after years of hard work have finally managed to
If I were to speculate, I would guess that the number of nails involved were
more than enough to get the job done. In fact, it was probably a crime of
passion and involved a lot of personal anger. Hence the numerous nails.
That most of the nails were shot after the victim was deceased.
Also, if you were to actually kill somebody with a nail gun, wouldn't nails
to the heart prove to be faster and more efficient in getting the job done?
Not that I have any actual experiene in these matters, of course.
One of the basic tests done to differentiate suicide from homicide is to
simply see if the weapon could be held by the victim in that position. With
the nails entering the back of the head, you would need a very long arm with
an extra joint or two to point the nailgun to the back of your own head.
I think homicide would be a logical conclusion here.

surely a simple time-travel device would get round THAT little problem?
More seriously, on my electric brad nailer I _could_ reach the back of my
head and trigger it with my thumb. I doubt I'd want to continue after the
first one, however.
I was thinking mire that death wouldn't be instantaneous and the deadguy
could have chucked the gun out of arms reach, or wandered a small distance

The funniest news report I've ever seen was a local "on-the-scene"
interview where the interviewer asked one of those inane "how do you
feel" questions. The answer should be printed in large type and used
as wallpaper in every "newsroom" in the counter, "It's very annoying
that you spend so much effort analyzing things you don't know shit
about." Must have been a live, non-tape-delayed broadcast or they
surely wouldn't have let that be broadcast.
4 always come to mind,
1. The excited anchor exclaimed "The airplane skidded into a crash"!
2. The on the scene reporter wearing yellow rubber boots and standing in a
2 inch deep pot hole filled with water blurts out, Water is beginning to
pond and it is becoming treacherous.
3. The "new" on the scene reporter desperate for words to fill the dead air
exclaims. You can see how much it has rained during the night by the amount
of water droplets that have accumulated on top of the cars!
4. On the NBC Today show. Matt Lauer was listening to an on the scene
reporter that was sitting in a canoe near a swollen creek/river. As she
was explaining the dangerous situation some one walked behind her in water
that was some where between ankle and knee deep. Had the canoe sunk, most
of it would still have been above water.
Must of been oneof those automatic, military style nail guns.
I wonder what type of "accident" could have happened to cause that many
nails to enter the skull. He was obviously doing something very unsafe.
Good thing OSHA didn't see this. Can you imagine the regulations they could
impement as a result of this unfortunate "accident"?
Studio chiefs successfully cast the part of Nailhead in forthcoming
blockbuster Hellraiser - The Hong Kong Connection after an unknown actor
turned up in full costume, gave a flawless, agonized performance and then
totally disappeared leaving a baffled casting director and second unit
"He kept stopping for aspirin" said baffled director Eliza Frupleskein, 27.
Baffled 42 year old studio security head, James Earl Smith said late last
night,"He rushed out of the studio lot without leaving a contact number. In
full makeup and costume. I'm completely baffled."
Director of Photography Alfred Stopcock, the famous 52 year old maker of such
classics as "Psychic" and "Dial P for Pizza" admitted to being completely
baffled. "The chap had the part completely nailed. Then he just ran out,
screaming. It's baffling."
"Alfred was going for drama" said Miss Frupelskein, 27. "To get the long dark
shadows he had the pin spots almost completely baffled."

Next thing we know we will have to register nail guns and sign
government forms when we buy nails. Lowe's employees will have to go
through FTA training and personality testing. (some should anyway).
