Shotgun Proves Sub-Optimal For Busting Nut

You know how it's always the last lugnut you can't remove when you're in a hurry to get the Lincoln rolling again? You try every leverage trick known to Archimedes, hose everything down with Liquid Wrench, the works, but that obstinate nut just won't turn.

Quicker than you can say "Steel is harder than lead," it was off to the emergency room for some fun with X-rays and scalpels! [Associated Press]
