Partygoer Shot in Head, Keeps Partying

Police in Bochum, Germany, say that a man was shot in the head with a .22 caliber bullet at a New Year's Eve party in 2004 or 2005 (the victim was unsure because he was drunk at the time). He didn't notice until he recently went to a doctor to get treated for head pain:

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.

“He told us he remembered having a sore head, but that he wasn’t really one for going to the doctor,” the spokesman said.

I heard a story about a guy in a poker game that had a .25 cal bounce off his forehead, maybe in SC or Alabama. I don't recall any more details or even know if it really happened, but is sounds plausible. I guess it ain't a party till somebody starts shootin.
