    Youth of today, don't know nothing about nature, too busy on their Grand Theft Autos and their Call of Duties to know what a tree looks like. If you ever saw an oak for real you'd just be all like, ooh, look at that ambient occlusion, ooh that anti-aliasing is amazing. Pfft.

    They also probably said "you're an idiot, get out of my A&E."

    Some of your tax money got spent then on this person.

    I'd hardly call myself a youth. I don't have GTA5 and don't like the COD series either!

    I'll just go with 'a moment of stupidity'.

    I've been searching for "MY BRUTAL ACORN HELL" on the tabloid newspaper sites and have been unable to track down any cases of acorn concussion.

    So far.

    Try the trashy women's gossip magazines like Bella and the like. They all have it all. Most are like paper based version of Jeremy Kyle...

    I am afraid I don't believe an object with as little mass as an acorn would do that sort of damage even when thrown by even the biggest Year 6 we have here. Perhaps if it was fired from some sort weapon then it would cause an injury but then a penetrating wound would be more likely due to the small diameter of the acorn.

    Now if it hit someone in the eye then a hand launched acorn let alone a weaponized version would be much more dangerous...

    This is probably an investigation that Mythbusters should carry out

    Well, this is an example of small things causing damage!

    Wonder if the children still use slingshots?
