Scared the ever livin piss out of myself today

So I decided to go ahead and put my exhaust, egr block off plates, and minimax in today. I struggled with the factory exhaust removal a little. I did it by myself. I installed the pro flo exhaust and that went pretty well. So then I went to remove the egr exhaust pipe from where it attaches to the manifold. I turned on the first bolt really hard and SNAP!!! I thought oh $#!+!!!!!!!!! I broke the bolt. I went to turn it out a few more turns and it didn't start coming out like I thought it would. I thought for sure I broke the bolt and was having dreadful visions of trying to get the rest out, thinking of easy outs, drilling and re-tapping it...... oh..... crap! So then I take a long rod and hammer and tap on the other bolt before trying to remove it. It came out easier. Then I tried to remove the pipe and it was still stuck. It was then I realized the other bolt was NOT broken, and wheeeew!!!!

Oh, and the truck sure runs nice now!!
