I hope this was spread over a life time and not just the first time he went to battle.

Interesting fact (non humorous) I've seen that picture before. If I remember correctly it is referred to as a "wound man". He was an illustration used to instruct medieval/early renaissance physicians on the nature and survivability of various wounds.
Sorry for ruining your fun.

Yep, it is out of the 1492, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wound_Man
In regard to the original post,the image has nothing to do with stopping power. There is nothing in the image that denotes whether a person with these sorts of wounds would be or was stopped or not. It could have been that the guy was stopped, completely, but survived. Stopping power and lethality are not necessarily the same thing.I thought you would get a jolt out of seeing it and remembering it the next time we are talking about STOPPING POWER.
Not New Orleans, He's from Los Angeles he is trying to find a
hospital which hasen't forced to close down due to massive influx of
uninsured illegal aliens.

I was given some incorrect information.
I was told the Wounded Man sustained those wounds to those body areas in a battle.
I sure did believe that since none of the inflicted injuries looked Immediately Life Threatening though many were nasty looking and no doubt quite painful and eventually likely fatal.
I just lost a lot of respect for that wound man if he (in reality) did not take that severe of a doggone a$$ Whupping & keep on ticking like a Timex watch.

Going on the original premise of wound man......I bet it was Chuck Norris' great-granddad.
now if he only got shot by a 25 acp. that would put him down.
An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
