Steel belt in tire showing

So I checked my rear tire today, and a lil less than 1/4th of the tire has the steel belt showing. Is it okay to ride on that tire for about a week or so? Thats the fastest i can come up with some money to get a new tire.

DO NOT RIDE ON THAT TIRE FOR ANY REASON AT ALL.
It can blow out at any time and cause damage to the bike or you.

Why is it worn so unevenly? Most of the tire has plenty of tread left on it, yet this one section has the belt showing a bit already.

That could be due to a few reasons. You could have had uneven air presure or inproper air preasure. It could have been from stoping hard on that spot ect.

My guess is that the wear bars were showing in the center about 1,000 miles ago as was already suggested. You need to learn how to check tires for wear my friend. You'd be amazed how easy it is to push something like a pencil through that tire where the belt is showing. Good way to get a blowout by simply running over a rock.

I've got a question, too. Figured I'd ask here, if you don't mind. Me and the fiance were wrestling around, when I slipped on the tile floor and fell head first into a fire poker. The poker went through my eye socket, and came out near the bottom of my skull in the back of my head. There is incredible pain and a fierce amount of bleeding. Should I go to the emergency room now, or will I be ok if I wait till friday, seeing as how I don't have the cash right now? It's very odd that I'm not dead right now, so I figured I could just push my luck and make it to the end of the week. What do you think?
