    The Ultimate Destruction Thread!

    Great thread idea. I get to deal with carnage all the time at work.

    My favorite -


    Piston and rod from a 15 liter Cummins ISX, 450 hp engine. We're not 100% on original cause of failure, but we think it started with a seized wrist pin, causing the connecting rod to bend. The shortened rod then pulled the piston out of the bottom of the cylinder and violently shoved it back into the cylinder, sideways. The rod then folded and started knocking windows in the sides of the engine block.
    There was no complete engine available for replacement, so I had to build a new engine from scratch. That's a lot more fun.

    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    never anything quite like that.

    Destruction in my world:

    Sure I get to see the damamge, and I usually supply the material to make it all better, but it doesn't always come to me that way:

    There should be a new Hood panel in this box:

    Wait, you mean the oil change fairies didn't take care of that at night while I was sleeping?!?!?

    We had a sales guy go 90,000 miles on the original oil in his company pick up. He just assumed the shop took care of his truck while he was working.

    I was across the street from the pentagon when 9/11 occurred. It wasn't the ultimate destruction, but it was the most I ever witnessed and felt pretty close at the time.
