A while back, my mom asked me to come pull out this giant piece of wood sticking out from under the headlight of her car because, as she puts it, she’s “old and weak”. Really she just doesn’t want to do it.
There wasn’t any damage, which is surprising considering that it really did seem hugely long. It somehow managed to break and lodge under the light in such a way that it only barely chipped the paint, yet still was stuck in there a ridiculous amount.
I have no explanation. Physics is weird sometimes.
