With that out of the way, Archimedes was right.  When your longest breaker bar just isn't enough, you just need a longer lever!  In this case, also known as a cheater bar.  All you need is a long sturdy section of tube/pipe and your much shorter nut loosening device.

Slip tube A over breaker bar B, add copious amounts of PB Blaster, and you've got yourself a good old fashioned device ideally suited for breaking sockets and rounding off nuts.  Occasionally it will even loosen the nuts with the socket intact.  One thing to watch out for is bolts that make a lot of noise when being loosened, can have that sound amplified to even more piercing levels by the tube.
