Take two asprin and call me five years from now

I swear like a sailor when I stub a toe or get a paper cut (okay, I actually cry like a baby), so I find this guy pretty impressive, if not a little oblivious:
A Polish man living in Germany went about his business for about five years without noticing he had been shot in the head because he was drunk when it happened. Police in the western city of Bochum said on Tuesday doctors found a .22 caliber bullet in the back of his head after the 35-year-old went to have what he thought was a cyst removed.

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'm not really one for going to the doctor, either, but that has more to do with the fact that he has cold hands and I dislike sitting around in my underwear for 45 minutes waiting for him than getting shot in the head. That's the kind of thing I might notice and/or seek treatment for.
