Default Kid gets shot with a crossbow in the face...and lives (pics)

Very Lucky Boy Catches Crossbow Bolt to the Face, Sans Death
Sam Biddle — Getting shot in the face with nearly anything other than pixie dust or a Super Soaker usually brings about a pretty swift death. Not so for English teen Lewis Tavernier, who put a bolt into his skull by accident. Whoops!

The misfire occurred so quickly that the kid wasn't even sure what happened, the Daily Mail reports: "‘I was only about a metre away but it was so quick and powerful I didn't really feel it go in. I just remember saying; "'mate is there an arrow in my face?'"

"Mate, is there any arrow in my face?" definitely has what it takes to be a British "Don't tase me, bro."

Once his mate verified that there was indeed an arrow in his face, he was rushed to the emergency room, where doctors were stunned to find that he was... pretty much fine. He'll need rehabilitative work on his face, but avoided puncturing vital nerves and arteries (to say nothing of his brain) by mere millimeters.

But don't worry—chap's learned a lesson: "‘I'll definitely be staying away from any medieval weaponry." Probably a pretty good guideline for anyone even without a cautionary bolt-to-the-dome experience. [The Daily Mail, Photo via Archant]

I've been looking at crossbows lately, might end up buying one for hunting season next year.

"Mate, is there an arrow in my face?" <------ this is legendary. This fool nearly murks himself with a crossbow and doesn't even realize it

Oh, you cannot afford food? Hope you get maimed by a bear, or maybe even a moose.

I hunt for sport but every animal I catch I use it as food afterwards.

They ate mostly vegetables (do you hunt vegetables with your rifle?), the option of taking another living beings life was last resort and very hard, fish were the bigger duty (that you dont need a rifle/crossbow for either)... If you are so keen on your ancestors way of surviving, then at least live in the middle of a forest in middle of nowhere next to a wolf/bear/tiger or lion/hyena territory and use no modern equipment whatsoever... if you survive a week i will call you a boss...

Just be honest man: "Its very thrilling to take another living beings life with these awesome weapons"
