Default Destroyed wing. Reason: forehead

Ok I know the subject sounds weird, but I can explain. I recently totaled an aircraft and the wings were fine and a friend of mine was spinning the wing around putting all of his arms weight on it. He was saying how it was so neat that you could do that and it dove to the ground, lifted up and barely missed his face. I wasn't looking at the time so he was gonna (crazily) demonstrate it. He swung it up and a gust of wind caught it and smashed it into his face. He looked like he hit himself in the head with a big red wing on purpose!! I was laughing so hard I almost started crying! It cracked the wing structure in 3 places and tore the cellophane. I can't believe that his eyebrow and forehead cracked it!! I will NEVER forget it!

Default Using Your Head

It sounds like a logical contradiction to me. Your friend didn't use his head when he "used his head."
