Default Standoffs stuck to Screws!??!?

Hmm... I took my old motherboard off yesterday and the standoffs came out of the motherboard tray with the screws... so they are still attached to the motherboard! how the **** do i take them them off?

I tried holding the standoff and unscrewing the screw... but no luck? do i need a vice or clamp or something?

This happens to me about every other time i remove my mobo. Just use a pair of pliers to hold it. Theres a reason they arent round.
