A Polish man living in Germany recently went into the doctor to have his head examined. Not, like, a psych evaluation – he had a huge, gross cyst sticking out of the back of his skull. Doctors examined the lump and excised what they also thought was going to be a cyst. In fact, it was a .22 caliber bullet.
The Telegraph reports: “Presented with the 5.6mm projectile, the man recalled he had received a blow to the head around midnight at a New Year’s party “in 2004 or 2005”, but had forgotten about it because he had been “very drunk”, a police spokesman said”
German police aren’t pursuing the case as a crime as they thought it just as likely that a partygoer fired it in celebration as in malice. They even went on to hand-wavingly explain that the bullet could’ve actually hit the man on its way down, so there’s really no cause to go after anybody. Sheesh. Sh*t happens when you party in Germany, apparently. A couple of guys get together, they have a few drinks….oh, hey, what’s that? A gun?! Why wouldn’t I dance with this?
