Shame Natural Selection didn't quite claim another victim. Maybe next time.
When I was little I got angry at a toy and threw it at the wall. It bounced back and hit me in the face.
I think there's a lesson there.
Lol. There is.
I wonder what possesses a man to think 'Damn, thats tight. Shotgun time.'
Insert obligatory "that's why your mom/wife/sister left me" remark here @w@
Most incredible thing in the whole article: "he was not intoxicated."
Why am I not surprised?
I read about this story in the paper this morning, brilliant.
And was alone... Shame he wasn't. Because when you see a friend in danger, you never, ever tell them. Funny stuff.
Pfft. Isn't this what rifles are for? Duh.
You are wrong. RPG's work waaayy better
You think this guy would have tried WD-40 and a longer bar to get more leverage... but what is science and practicality good for when you've got a loaded shotgun at your disposal!
The article describes this incident as "an accident", but that doesn't quite do it justice does it?
He's still alive?
No Darwin Award for him.
I think that technique is in the DMV manual here in Washington state. Of course they only specify it for emergency situations. For example, having a flat on a busy 2 lane highway, as its very dangerous to stay long on the shoulder struggling to change the tire.
Some people in the Darwin Award books live (like the lonely guy who decided to try it on with his portable vacuum cleaner...only to find that the suction was caused by a spinning blade)
Fits of rage produce, sometimes, humorous results. I once banged my hand changing a tire, picked up the spare tire and threw it down on the ground only to have it bounce back and hit me ever so perfectly in the nose. Tickle me embarrassed.
He's 66, I don't think he's going to be doing any more procreating anyway.
Love Google ads at the bottom of this page.
re the DMV thing - Hmm you're pulling my trigger aren't you?
wow. is he a real person?
What do you think grasshopper?
Of course I'm not
Before clicking the link, your thinking to yourself Bet this story is about an American"
While I take no pleasure in someone elses misfortunes (unless they aren't physically injured), this story made my day.
I once punched a wall out of anger. The wall didn't even take a dent, but my hand hurt like hell. That damn wall sure showed me. Needless to say, I've never messed with a wall again.
Oh, and thanks to Jon Stewart, the word 'peppered' used in this context makes me laugh. "He was lightly seasoned?"
Hey, we aren't all that stupid. Just most of us.
So will he sue the car or the gun manufacturer?
I fully agree to combatcolin
Hey, now why do you have to go and encourage and perpetuate that sort of thinking?
Yep. Take a few steps back before firing a shotgun at a tyre.
Of course it is. There was even a sheriff's comment in this story. Sheriff! What year is this?
When you can't fix it, Shoot the damn thing! I like that way of thinking.
Maybe he was trying to fire the shotgun using the tire?
