    * So you think that YOU are having a bad day? Hah!!!

    THINK YOU ARE HAVING A BAD DAY?

    Taken from a Florida Newspaper:

    A man working on his motorcycle on his patio and his wife was in the kitchen. The man was racing the engine on the motorcycle when it accidentally slipped into gear. The man, still holding onto the handle bars, was dragged through the glass patio doors and along with the motorcycle dumped onto the floor inside the house. The wife, hearing the crash, ran into the dining room and found her husband lying on the floor, cut and bleeding, the motorcycle lying next to him and the shattered patio door. The wife ran to the phone and summoned the ambulance. Because they lived on a fairly large hill, the wife went down the several flights of stairs to the street to escort the paramedics to her husband. After the ambulance arrived and transported the man to the hospital, the wife up-righted the motorcycle and pushed it outside. Since gas was spilled on the floor, the wife got some paper towels, blotted up the gasoline and threw the towels in the toilet. The man was treated and released to come
    home.

    Upon arrival he looked at the shattered patio door and the damage done to his motorcycle. He became despondent, went to the bathroom, sat down on the toilet and smoked a cigarette. After finishing the cigarette, he flipped it between his legs into the toilet bowl while seated. The wife, who was in the kitchen, heard the loud explosion and her husband screaming. She ran into the bathroom and found her husband lying on the floor.

    His trousers had been blown away and he was suffering burns on the buttocks, the back of his legs and his groin. The wife again ran to the phone to call the ambulance. The very same paramedic crew was dispatched and the wife met them at the street.

    The paramedics loaded the husband on the stretcher and began carrying him to the street. While they were going down the stairs to the street accompanied by the wife, one of the paramedics asked the wife how the husband had burned himself. She told them and the paramedics starting laughing so hard, one of them slipped and tipped the stretcher, dumping
    The husband out. He fell down the remaining stairs and broke his arm.

    Feeling better yet?

    The average cost for rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the most expensively saved animals were released back into the wild amid cheers and applause from onlookers. A minute later, in full view, a killer whale ate them both.

    After this one you should start feeling fine!

    A psychology student in New York rented out her spare room to a carpenter in order to nag him constantly and study his reactions. After weeks of needling, he snapped and beat her with an axe leaving her mentally retarded.

    Still not there yet?

    A woman came home to find her husband in the kitchen, shaking frantically with what looked like a wire running from his waist towards the electric kettle. Intending to jolt him away from the deadly current she whacked him with a handy plank of wood by the back door, breaking his arm in two places. Until that moment he had been happily listening to his Walkman.

    Maybe this will do it!

    Two aminal rights protesters were protesting at the cruelty of sending pigs to the slaughterhouse in Bonn, Germany. Suddenly, the pigs, all two thousand of them, escaped through a broken fence and stampeded, trampling the two hapless protesters to death.

    if after this one you don't feel better I give up!

    And finally . . . Iraqi terrorist, Khay Rahnajet, didn't pay enough postage on a letter bomb. It came back with "return to sender" stamped on it. Forgetting it was the bomb; he opened it and was blown to bits.

    and here is the last and best

    The best has to be that two years ago police found a badly burnt body in a forest. An autopsy revealed that he died from shock rather than the burning. The more weird thing was that the body had a divers wetsuit on, along with oxygen tanks and their was no water for miles around. The police were puzzled as to how the diver got there and how he had gotten so badly burns.

    It turns out that 2 weeks before there had been a bad forest fire. In order to control the forest fire, a helicopter with water scoop was deployed (you've guessed the rest right!!!).

    The diver was diving in a lake 100 miles away when all of a sudden he became trapped in a metal container (the scoop from the helicopter). 15 minutes later he was being dropped from 1000 feet along with the water onto a burning forest inferno below!!!

    See your day's not so bad, is it???

    I feel better already, and rotten.com always reminds me that life could be much, much, much worse.

    The story is supposedly one of those weird but, utterly true stories..

    Actually there is an even weirder twist to the story itself.

    The person piloting the fire-fighting aircraft knew the person he scooped up. The pilot was a black-jack dealer at a local casino. The night before he got in a fight with the scuba-diver after the diver had lost a great deal at the tables.

    The story is included in a montage at the beginning of the movie Magnolia. Another weirder but, true story in the montage goes like this.

    A boy was so fed up his mother and father fighting that he decided to do something about it. His parents routinly fought by pointing guns at each other. The parents always kept the guns unloaded because they actually didn't really want to kill each other. The son loaded one of the shotguns in the house to help speed along the enivitable. When loading the shotgun didn't help along the proccess he decided to take his own life. He went to the top of his apartment building and jumped off. Unknown to him a saftey net was put up that morning to protect a set of window washers coming that day. On his fall down he was shot in the chest by his mother pointing the shotgun at her husband. His mother had no idea the gun was loaded and shot her son as he passed by the window of their apartment, then landed softly in the net. The mother and father were charged with murder and the son was charged as an accomplice in his own death.

    ok so it wasn't a coincidence, the pilot did it intensionally, the its an murder.

    It's an old urban legend; it never happened. It's also really not possible since the intakes on the various pieces of equipment used by water bombers range from a few inches up to a foot. Not surprisingly, when they design those things they realize that if you want to get just water you don't need a big opening.

    No one's ever been able to find a legitimate source that would make the story believable (like an actual newspaper article, which would pretty certainly be written if someone really did die that way). It's similar to the old story about the guy who supposedly died after fixing a JATO rocket unit to his car in the Arizona desert: commonly retold and accepted as legitimate (by people who take things like "Darwin Awards" mass-forwarded emails seriously), but it never happened.

    There's an entertaining hoax website that's sort of related to the diver story, by the way: http://www.firediving.com

    Nah, the story has been told and retold for more than a decade. I heard it in usenet long, long ago... long before Magnolia, long before the more recent borrowing of the story for an episode of the TV show CSI.

    The fact that it's mentioned in a piece of fiction, even if it's presented in that fictional piece as true (it's fiction, remember) doesn't mean it happened. Same for the second story you mentioned from the movie. There are all kinds of variations of that one, but they also are not true. They have their roots in a hypothetical situation presented in a speech to a group of forensic scientists: the story of a medical examiner trying to determine a cause of death for someone who jumped from a building and was shot on the way down.

    The speech was made sometime in the 80's, and variations of the hypothetical story told in it have been all over the internet and have jumped to various movies, tv shows, and books since then. But clearly if it happened it would be reported in legitimate newspapers, and there are no such reports.
