I've never had a knife stuck in my head. I imagine I would either pass out or freak out. This gentleman was surprisingly calm.

In northeast China's Jilin province, a man with a knife stuck in his head visited a local hospital, and according to witnesses, he calmly walked from the first floor to the fifth floor with the knife protruding from his head. No wonder, Chinese net users have dubbed the guy "Calm Brother" (淡定哥).

He might have been in shock, and it's amazing that he can even stand up.

According to NetEase (via HugChina and ShanghaiIst), the injury happened while the man was joking around with his friends. And, it seems, with a knife.

"Calm Brother" has been treated at the hospital and is reportedly in stable condition. That's good to hear. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Knife to head incidents are pretty interesting I think.

Someone once attempted to stab my uncle in the head when he grew up in South Africa, the knife ended up shattering on impact. Not as interesting as being stabbed and still in stable condition, but still, I thought it was interesting.

I'm glad it didn't happen to me, I'd probably think I was invincible after that.

Anyone else got any interesting knifing stories?
