so you took off you hood to replace it with what? No damage to the hinge = wrench was used.

Why/how did this happen? Inquiring minds want to know.
We must see pics of the hood.

he said the hood came clean off. He didn't say it accidentally fell off. So he removed it and the rest of you are reading into it more than you should

Nuke0907 meant to say :

I was having trouble getting the hood off cuz I've never ever ever taken anything off my car. I smashed, punched, juggled, kicked and pulled the hood thinking it might come off, if I pulled hard enuff or something.... But I finally realized what I was doing wrong. So I grabbed the wrench and it came off clean....luckily there was no damage to my car. The hood though, it's a different story.......

Uh… no. Had he just said "My hood came off" it could mean he took it off himself, or had someone else remove it. But what he said was "Oh Sh**! My hood came off". That could only mean one thing: the hood came off, and he didn't want it to.

That's your interpretation of what he said. If I said "Oh ****! I won the lotto", would you also claim that could mean only one thing, that I didn't want to win the lotto?

Also the picture does not show any damage. Having removed the hood several times, those are giant bolts holding the hood on. And the latch on the front of the hood wouldn't allow it to open and flip back due to the safety.

^That's ridiculous; context is everything.

Used in front of "I won the lotto," "Oh Shit" clearly means "wow". Any 4-year old knows that; "Oh Shit" in front of what's commonly thought to be a "good thing" is an exclamation of excitement/happiness. But used in front of "my hood came off" (or "my house is on fire," or "my girlfriend left me,") it means "something unexpectedly bad happened."

If the pic indicates the hood was removed by design, then the title of this thread is intentionally misleading—and, in fact, not a neutral sentence that some happen to misinterpret.

if its used in front of "My hood came off and i got a carbon fiber one!" it becomes "Oh Shit! My hood came off and i got a carbon fiber one!" context IS everything
