Which part of the human body would produce the least disabling effects when shot by a single bullet from a gun
i was thinking shooting the palm of the hand would make you lose almost all hand control, a shot to the thigh might damage the sciatic nerve and cause a limp... if one had to choose a body part to be shot, what would be the wisest choice?
Additional Details
the damage from a bullet would be too big to affect just an earlobe... i appreciate your responses but i am in no way planning anything scary.. i am doing researches on world war 2 and vietnam era torture/interrogation techniques... to actually scare someone with a shot without causing much damage... by the way, shooting the *** might cause multiple nerve damage as the sciatic nerve passes behind/through the piriformis muscle...
                     




CarloS
Your butt is the safest place on your body to get shot and survive with minimal damage.


Wishing
umm scary question.

probably in the butt. seems like there would be a lot of fat to cushion/keep it from doign serious damage.

I would say the upper arm. my dad broke his arm last year his muscle was like hamburger (exact words from surgeon) 2 surgeries later, 6 mths phy therapy he's almost as good as he was before.


Just Q
Try shooting up your nose to your brain. It would cause the least disabling effects seeing that you do not have a brain.....Get real!


?
ring finger left hand first joint from the end behind the fingernail.

If i could choose a part, it would be a foot. you can always get an artificial leg. lol!


♥ Callie Ann ♥
your earlobe.....some part that doesn't have much nerve and more fat. The @$$ is a good place.

The earlobe.

through the upper arm, broken bone can be repaired, and the muscle in that area doesn't perform any detailed motor movements, it just opens and closes the arm at the elbow. I think that it would still work after being shot.

Part of the problem is the dynamics of the bullet and how it reacts in the body.

Anything to the torso is problematic, as if you hit a bone, the bullet could go anywhere.

If you hit the intestine, the bacteria causes septus.

Puncture a lung and it will collapse. Try breathing with that.

You might be able to hit the spleen, but it could get so damaged it has to come out.

Good luck on your date tonight.

probably in the foot. sure it'll hurt for a while but then it will heal and be almost the exact same.

Your rear end!

An inverted Y considering the head, spine, heart, lungs, and the long bones (femur) and major (femoral) arteries of the thighs are the most disabling places to be shot.


The Proof Is In The Pudding
Definately the butt.


bbqchezit

the side of the lower torso, no major vessals, no major nerves, though it would hurt


The CEO
The air. Shoot in the air.
but if you must shoot flesh, then the butt is probably the least harmful place, but sideways (not directly into it)


socal4jeani
All I know is that when I tell the doc not to hurt me with the needle he goes for the "tushie". ***-uming that is because it is proven to be the lesser of painful places, my vote would be for a cheek, not too deeply though.


emclean
i would think a gunshot through the meaty part of the arm would not be disabling.

pinky toe. though you would probably loose it. don't shoot the big toe, because that one is for balancing. or your nose.

sorry such questions are not good

Good question :) ... Even though I don't know either you and your background, you sound like you either studied this subject before ("for fun") or you're actually someone with a medical field. I am impressed at your knowledge of anatomy and how everything works :) Way to go!

As the answer to your question, I would've said "Head" since after that no one would feel anything at all, but I guess that won't do anyone any good... the person would like to live with minimal damage to the body... hmm.

Depending on the calaber of the bullet, the gun, and the person... There are a lot of muscle tissues, nerves, blood vessels, and bones in the human body. Any damage done to it, no matter how minimal and no matter how fast it healed, will come out and let you know about itself as you grow older (it'll start hurting and sometimes people don't know why, because they might forget about it). Even though cells in the body have a memory on how to rejuvenate themselves (i.e.: it takes about 3-5 years for the nerves to grow back and reconnect during the foot injury with just one-nerve broken--mononeuropathy), it'll take a long and pain-staking process to heal completely. Depending on the extend of the injury, nerves and other layers in the body part might not take that "short" of a time (3-5 years) to come back to "normal" and at other times, the person might need either a transplant or amputation of the body part.

In my opinion, any part of the body will hurt like there's no tomorrow if shot by the gun and having a bullet come through it. The reason to that being is that we have nerves everywhere in the body and no matter how "easy" you'd like to make it for the other person (even for yourself), it'll still hurt and he/she might sustain either short-term damage (scarring and minimal nerve damage) or permanent damage (loosing limbs and permanent nerve damage). Someone said that if shot in the "fleshy area" it'll hurt less... I'm not quite sure about that. I believe, it'll depend on the person and their pain threshhold (i.e.: how much pain can they sustain before screaming bloody murder?)

Best of luck with your research project, it sounds like a very interesting thing to learn about and research even further.



P.S.: I believe the wisest choice for the torture will be: to tickle someone untill they'll confess! :) It'll be fun (depending how you look at it) and very easy to do (all you need is a feather). There are a lot of ticklish spots on a person, and in the places you can't even see ;)
