Doctors Look at the REAL Damage Done to the Crooks in Home Alone! Listen to this article

Paint Can to the Face

This is just a fun one – Home Alone is set at Christmas, making it a classic for the season. As everyone knows Macaulay Culkin gets left behind as his extended family takes a big trip, and takes on home invaders Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci. What starts as a tale of a kid who is overlooked and is a bit of a screw-up who can’t seem to figure out a way to fit in ends up as a story about growth and self-discovery.

But as anyone who has seen it knows, Stern and Pesci take a load of abuse – red-hot doorknobs, torched heads, and on and on. An article at TheWeek has doctors taking on these incidents and assessing the likely hard caused.

The article walks through just about every famous setup in the movie and makes for a fun read (unless you visualize the actual outcomes, in which case it is just disturbing).

Michael Anderson
I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
