    No, not the board favorite.

    A man in Washington state was perturbed when he couldn't get the final lugnut off a tire he was trying to change.

    So he shot it.

    And, remarkably, it didn't work out so well.

    Since this happened in South Kitsap, it does not surprise me in the least.

    When some kid fires the lugnuts on your vehicle with an airgun - instead of using an airgun to do most of the grunt work, then hand-tightening with a wrench - even WD40 won't save you.

    I had to help a features editor out years ago when she had a flat and couldn't budge the lugnuts off her bad wheel. I ended up putting the wrench on the lugnut, put both hands on the fender for balance and jumping up and down on the wrench to get those stupid things off.

    I've never been confused with a big, strong guy but when you have to put forth that kind of effort to loosen lugnuts, there's a pretty serious problem.
