    -is the lifetime warranty the most important feature of any tool?
    -do you rejoice in feeling a nut move, until you realize you've sheared the grade 8 bolt?
    -is the term "breaker bar" a little too accurate?
    -does everyone at the sears customer service counter yell "NORM" (insert your name), as if you just walked into Cheers?
    -do those same people constantly ask how you snapped/cracked/bent your brand new tool? woohoo, lifetime warranty.
    -do you take digital pics before and after to make sure you haven't damaged vital components?

    this weekend was a slow one, carnage-wise. only a few broken bolts, 2 sheared u-bolts (friend's heep) one cracked socket, one bent wrench. not bad. there should be a 12-step program for bolt breakers, part punishers, and tool trashers.
