LOL
Sorry to laugh but the EXACT same thing happend to my friend's stud when we were switching his valve cover. It isn't that hard to fix, you just need a deep socket wrench to take it out. Then replace it with a new one. I would recomend getting a new stud before you take it out though. My friend had his old integra that he drove into a truck with so we took one from his old head. Just remeber that Honda engine parts are almost always interchangeable so don't worry if the stud came from a b17 or something else, they are all the same.
