Man Nailed Own Brain, Didn't Even Feel It

Nail in the head ain't nothin' to Dante Autullo, who accidentally fired a three-inch nail into his brain and didn't even feel it:

Dante Autullo remained conscious after the self-inflicted injury and initially believed he had only brushed his nail gun against his head.

The 32-year-old, who is recovering in hospital, even continued doing handiwork around his Chicago home for the rest of the day and chatted to his family.
But he was taken to hospital the following afternoon after waking up from a nap feeling ill.

An X-ray revealed the nail lodged in his brain – but Mr Autullo was still well enough to post an image of the scan on Facebook during an ambulance ride between hospitals.

There are no noxious stimuli (pain) receptors in the brain. He probably did feel a sudden pressure in the back of his head but ignored it. It's actually quite common with gunshot wounds to the head.
