OK, here’s the thing wannabe Mythbusters, don’t try the “shooting bullets through a phone book” experiment at home, especially if your aim is shit. An Ohio man got all enthused after watching an ep of Mythbusters so decided to test the ballistic stopping power of a telephone book. So he plonked some on his fireplace mantle and began shooting with his 9mm pistol. Only prob was, he managed to hit the phone book once while the other rounds went through his wall and hit his neighbor’s home. Fail.That’s a discharging a firearm into an inhabited dwelling charge right there!

A man in Germany went to the docs after feeling a lump in the back of his head only to discover it was a bullet. Yes, the man had been shot during a New Year’s Eve party five years prior. The Polish man who had been drunk at the time recalled receiving a blow to the head but didn’t bother seeking medical attention. Fortunately for him the 22 caliber slug didn’t penetrate the skull.
A big shout out to British soldier Lance Corporal Luke Reeson who was shot in the face by the Taliban but simply spat out the bullet and walked 2 miles for medical help. The bullet evidently bounced off his body armor went up his lower cheek (breaking his jaw) before ending up in his mouth. Reeson is expected to make a full recovery.
