No Way to Hang a Mirror

If you have a wall above a fireplace in your home and wish to hang a heavy mirror on it, but the studs are a foot or more off center, may I suggest not doing it this way: hang the mirror on a single 50-lb rated picture hook nailed into the sheet rock right around the start of the Super Bowl. For with only 1:58 in the 4th and the Eagles desperately trying to pull even, out of the corner of your eye, in subliminal speed, you will see your new mirror rip slowly out of the sheetrock, pausing briefly on the mantle to crush the glass objets de art there, before falling straight down to the brick hearth shattering the mirror, then sort of bounce up and slide flat on the floor. No sir, you'd be very glad you'd moved the dog bed away from there earlier that day, and wished you'd used 3 medium toggle bolts instead.
