    The crazy shit thread

    Post whatever you come across that beggars belief. You know, crazy shit!

    Huffington Post: Julio Aparicio Gored in Throat During Bullfight

    Julio Aparicio, one of Spain's most famous matadors, was gored in the throat today during a bullfight. The horrific injury has left him in critical condition:

    "[The horn] went though the tongue and penetrated the roof of the mouth, fracturing the jawbone," one of the medics who worked on Aparicio told AFP news in Madrid.

    The incident took place during the Festival of Saint Isidro, considered to be the most important event in the bullfighting calendar, at the Plaza de Toros las Ventas bullring, which can seat up to 24,000 people.

    Scroll down for photos and video of the goring. WARNING: they are not for the faint of heart.

    Holy crap! How did I miss this thread. Sorry, I've been having a pretty bad week and haven't been keeping up with things. I found out about this story recently and related it to my recent dentist experience that I posted elsewhere.

    That image is one of the craziest f'n pictures I've ever seen! Completely insane! I don't even really feel bad for that guy. You mess with the bull, you get the horns.

    Yeah, it's pretty crazy. Well done for the bull though, for sure. Cool
