I broke a what?!?!

I've busted a lot of stuff over the years - mostly the poorly constructed and therefore delicate projects I'd built, but also plenty of electronic components, hardware, circuit boards, etc. I've even broken and bent a few small tools.

But until yesterday I'd never snapped off half a pair of needlenose pliers so cleanly it looked like they'd been sawed apart. How's that even possible? (Sure, my finger strength is unparalleled, but I wield it gently. :)

I'd post a picture, but I can't be bothered to dig 'em out from under the pile of Robosapien discards clogging up the trash. Trust this random guy on the Internet, though - it really happened.
