How the hell do I get this pin back in the chain?

So I decided to change my chain for the first time with a chain tool and didn't read the part where it says not to push the pin out completely, so now I've spent the past two hours trying to push the fucker back in. Is this at all humanly possible?

Haha. Is is possible (I've done it) but it's an enormous pain.

You need some strong pliers and the chain breaker and a lot of patience, iirc.

With the money you could have made at work for the four hours that took you, you could have just bought a new chain.

I think you underestimate the value of persistence rewarded.

Also applies to "finding that last ball bearing under/behind the stove."
