  • Another Darwin Award Hopeful

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7091904.stm

    A US man has injured himself in both legs after attempting to loosen a stiff wheel-nut by blasting it with his gun.

    ...

    Shooting at the wheel from arm's length with his 12-gauge shotgun, he was peppered with buckshot and debris.
    Silly me... I always just use a lug wrench. Guess that's as good of a reason as any to keep a gun in the trunk!

    I think that tool is better used to blow a nutjob's head off, than blowing a stiff wheel-nut off, but I'm not a professional mechanic.

      Heard about this on another board. The guy may not be a Darwin winner but he is certainly in the running.
      Those that forget history are condemed to repeat it.
      If you're going to be one you might as well be a BIG RED ONE

        I'm not sure he's running anywhere
        He sustained injuries from his feet to the middle of his abdomen, with some pellets reaching as high as his chin, police said.
        Yikes! That's most of my favorite parts of me!
