Vincible Tires

I recently purchased some rather expensive, supposedly invincible tires for my commute / touring bike. The Schwalbe Marathon Supremes are acclaimed as about the most indestructible tire out there, short of a couple truly massive things that really aren't much fun to ride on.

Now, if you ever found yourself asking, as I have, "Self, just what would it take to puncture one of these tough tires?" I can now provide an answer.
Very pointy, kinda short, big flat head for maximum leverage... went right in through the middle of the tread, all the way to the head. Psssssssshhhhhhh.... $^&%#$&*&!
