Does not compute.

Either way, best of luck with your recovery (if this happened now, I can't tell).

some nail guns work like an actual gun, hence the shell

Should have said it was just a cross check with different geometry. - Todd

I dunno, I don't think any nail guns run on ".22 cal bullets"
I they do, that's totally badass.

you've never heard of powder actuated drivers?

do they not have those in europe?

basically they use a small charge to shoot a fastener into concrete.

here is a link that will tell you way more than you'd ever thought: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powder-actuated_tool

I'm not sure if they sell powder actuated tools over here, I guess they probably do. I don't work in the construction industry. They might have gunpowder and firerarm-like casings, even .22 casings, but they sure as hell don't have "bullets". The first post was confusing as hell.
So what happened here is that the side of the casing blew out when you fired the thing and the shard hit your hand?
It's just a weird thing to have happen. I've fired about 30,000 to 50,000 .22 rounds out of a rifle over the last 18 years or so and I've only had one casing blow up. The bottom just separated from the cylinder. That was some old Soviet dogshit ammo and the blowout was about 10 times louder than a normal shot.

my friend loaded the tool wrong and my gun has a broken breach so you have to fuck with it to fully close and i guess it wasnt that time

Speedy recovery, Gomen. That's fucking horrifying.

Also, that's the sheldon brown method of locking up.

No, it's not.
The sheldon brown method would have the lock under the seatstay
that lock was above the seatstay and got kicked down into the frame. You can tell by the brake cable within the lock.

ah, true. But now it's locked up sheldon brown style!

A close friend had this done to his locked bike. Two scumbags tried to steal it by hitting the U-lock with a 3-ft steel pipe. Lock suffered no visible damage apart from chipped plastic cover, the frame was a write-off. It was a cheap frame, but this sort of retarded shit boils my blood. Even he himself would have been less pissed if someone had cut the lock and taken the bike.

^ i would be pissed but not nearly as pissed as if they took the whole bike. I mean all the components are still good. Could probably get crash replacement for the frame and only be out a little bit of dough.

Guessing he was trying to remove a cog off an unlaced hub. Saw my lbs trash a velocity hub doing that last Saturday

Something really strange must have happened there. Normally, the NDS flange is not under any stress.
I'd guess he beat his bearings to shit with his jackassery, the nds side seized up, he pedaled on.
one side blocked + the other twisted by non-power legs + crappy hub material = new kind of failure discovered!

Yeah, that's what happens when you cut a hub out of a wheel and then try to remove the cog. Usually it just shears in half but that could happen too I guess.

Machines were mice and men were lions once upon a time, but now that its the opposite it's twice upon a time.

My roommate just looked at this picture and saw that due to the direction of the twist in relation to the cog that had to be done while riding, unless that twisted while taking off the lockring. And that seems pretty damn unlikely. So this was a riding incident.

Says that he didn't touch the cog. He unlaced the wheel 'cause the rim was trashed, and then noticed the hub was like that.

Maybe doing some trick trackery foolishness the drive side detensioned on an impact or something and he applied force to the drive train?

my guess is manufacturing defect. the hub root was cut too thin.

Whoa you're right. the other side is freewheel threads.

Thats crazy.

Or accidentally tightened cog when he meant to loosen it? Maybe then kept forcing it?
I dunno... it's all speculation.

apparently it's not uncommon for the front wheel to be fine and the frame fucked. a friend of mine hit a car that jumped out in front of him, he's a big guy and nearly folded his frame in two, but the front wheel (deep-v, lol) was fine.

Yeah that's not really unusual. Wheels can take massive forces in the plane of the rim. I.e. if you hit something head on, the rim will probably survive. Hit it at an angle and this happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JGFn5s38uo

its a physics issue.
basically the angle of the dangle is equal to the weight of the bait
which is less that the motion of the ocean
and causes some friggin in the riggin
