    Apparently they are so short handed that they have to use household items. There is an actual video of the doctor using a battery powered drill to drill into the guy's skull.

    How would you guys feel if someone took a drill from the garage to drill into your skull?

    That's gross. It's all rusty and stuff. I thought it'd be a new drill.

    Reminds me of a recent episode of House M.D. The one that was one after the Superbowl this year.

    They used a drill press, which is stabilized, as well as a high grade industrial tool.

    Indeed they did. Here they were just using a regular cordless drill to drill into the guy's skull.

    What would happen if he was putting that pressure on and the "popped through"?
