"Nine Inch Nailed", Way to Die #232, is the seventh and final death featured in "Star Death: The Last Generation", which aired on February 8, 2012.


Kyle, Matt and Clark are hired to clean a local junkyard, but waste time horsing around than actually cleaning. The three guys find an old truck tire and a makeshift ramp and decide to waste more time by rolling down the hill and across the ramp while inside of the tire. Matt is the first to go down the hill, and comes out unscathed when he passes the ramp. When Clark rolls onto the ramp, it collapses, exposing two nine-inch framing nails, one of which punctures through the tire and pierces the back of Clark's neck, severing the spinal cord and causing him to die from neurogenic shock. While Kyle went for help, Matt screams and cries while cradling Clark's dead body.

"Mortality can be a real bitch. Clark lost his life and Matt... his mind."
