Being Shot In The Face Not A Serious As You Might Think

In case you were worried about this, there was a piece over at Austin's KUT about a recent Austin area trauma surgeons conference that had this tidbit about gunshot wounds to the face:
“These injuries are high on the wow scale,” he said. “But because they are rarely a lethal injury they are much lower on the badness scale.” 
He displayed a bar graph showing the “wow” to be at 9 out of ten, but the “badness” as only a 3 on the same scale.
I feel much better about the possibility of being shot in the face already.
