For those who are of a practical nature.

Reading it brought a smile to my face. Nodding my head and thinking, "Been there, done that, got the blood on my knuckles!"   ;D ;D ;D

The mechanic had to remove my engine intake manifold because one of the thermostat bolts tore off and we tried everything and we couldn't get it to budge so mechanic removed the entire manifold he took it to a welder and he welded on a bar on what was left of the bolt and he worked back and forth and it went well it came out and no damage to the manifold. 
My views would be from someone who lives out in the province close to in-laws on a pension.  Norwegian and French heritage.
