Some seriously sick scumbag did this to a cat in Cavan. Only an absolute monster could do something like this to a defenceless creature, someone’s pet.
Mani, from Constellation: a portrait series by New York artist Kumi Yamashita.
Each image is made from a single unbroken strand of black thread woven through a dense array of galvanised nails on a plain white board.
All Hail Dante Autullo, extreme Facebooker:
Autullo was recovering Friday after undergoing surgery at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where doctors removed the nail that came within millimeters of the part of the brain controlling motor function.
“When they brought in the picture, I said to the doctor `Is this a joke? Did you get that out of the doctors joke file?”‘ the 32-year-old recalled. “The doctor said `No man, that’s in your head.”‘
As he was rushed by ambulance to another hospital for surgery, he posted a picture of the X-ray on Facebook.
Autullo, who lives in Orland Park, said he was building a shed Tuesday and using the nail gun above his head when he fired it. With nothing to indicate that a nail hadn’t simply whizzed by his head, his long-time companion, Gail Glaenzer, cleaned the wound with peroxide.
“It really felt like I got punched on the side of the head,” he said, adding that he continued working. “I thought it went past my ear.”

How to make this.
Don’t look at the video yet. Even the screengrab is a spoiler. See if you can figure it out.
Now. How’s about that?
