Doctors at Hannover Medical School in Germany treated a 50-year-old man earlier this year complaining of constant headaches that were only getting worse. He had no history of head injuries or drug problems, but told doctors that he had been headbanging at a Motörhead concert with his son the month before. After scanning his head, doctors found a brain bleed.
According to their case study published today in medical journal the Lancet, doctors then drilled a hole in the man’s head to drain the blood, after which his headaches stopped. It was all the headbanging. [via]

Breezed through most of this tonight. Get it. You’ll be fascinated by the case studies, learn relevant neuroanatomy, ride along the fMRI tech talk, giggle and leave with a hankering for a good steak and a martini.
I’m officially re-inspired. Really looking forward to meeting Dr. Kiehl next week!
Jesse Lee Herald of Edinburg, Virginia, received an unusual sentence for child endangerment, hit-and-run driving, and driving on a suspended license: 20 months in prison, five years of probation, and a vasectomy. As part of his plea deal, Herald had to agree to get snipped when he got out of jail. He’s not allowed to undergo a reversal until his probation is up.
Herald has a fairly long rap sheet already, including a previous hit-and-run conviction, but it wasn’t just his life of petty crime that inspired the mandatory vasectomy, according to what assistant prosecutor Ilona L. White told NV Daily
White said her motivation in offering the vasectomy option to Herald stemmed from concerns raised at sentencing hearings in earlier cases about how many children have been traced to him from different women."It was primarily due to the fact he had seven or eight children, all by different women, and we felt it might be in the commonwealth’s interest for that to be part of the plea agreement," White said of the vasectomy provision.
