not a direct experience but....
when one of my grandfathers died, my family had to do an inventory on what he had out on my uncle's farm, etc... anyway, my dad and a relative went to check out the old shed in the back paddock, inside wasn't much apart from a few basic tools, materials etc... except for an old fridge.

They opened the fridge casually to check out it's contents: FULL of old unstable EXPLOSIVES! (the jelly kind). After much care to very gently close the fridge door they got the bomb squad in to safely remove it....

» Mugged

A pizza delivery story I heard...
Apparently one driver who worked in a store at another part of town decided to fake a mugging. He phoned up and placed a "bogus" delivery order (in which he was most likely to be delivering himself). He then goes for a drive to a quiet park, stashes the money, eats some of the pizza and tosses the hotbags.

He then went back to the shop and claimed he was mugged. The funny thing to this story is that when the cops went through the shops phone records to follow the evidence they arrested the driver for fraud as the stupid idiot had used his own mobile phone to place the bogus order to begin with....

» Worst Nicknames Ever

one of my alternate online identities...
back when I was getting into the online dating scene, I decided to make a suitably anonymous name for a disposable hotmail account. I don't know why but at the time the thought of species labelling popped into my head (like "Homo Erectus" for defining mankind.)

I added a cheeky slant to this and "Stiffus Erectus" was born..... the email account apparently still works, although I have no use for it anymore. It has successfully served it's purpose in netting myself a great girlfriend!

» Worst Nicknames Ever

I had a few from high school days.....
because of my first name "Colin" I sometimes got called "Colin Carpenter" (A character from some stupid australian comedy drama, who was a bit of a thick headed idiot).

A few were based around my surname "Nash"
- "Bangers and Mash" (originated some little british cartoon).
- "Flash" (as in Flash Gordon) I didn't get this much, but my older brother got this a bit when he had been through school (back then the "Flash" movie was released featuring music from "Queen").
- "Nashy" became my main nickname, I was pretty much ok with this one. I found out that if I mis-spelled it as "Nashi" it would mean a type of fruit "Nashi Pear".

When I got into network gaming I made up "Mad Nashy" as my online identity. It kinda fitted the reputation of a "crazy fruit" when in playing Quake1 - If I got a little bored, Id get out the axe and try to attack the winning player (usually sporting a rocket launcher), usually unsuccessful, but hell funny when they get offended at being whipped by a dude with the most useless weapon in the game! (I once had a friend scream obcenities from the other side of a usually quiet classroom because of this, he got sent outside for it too!)

I got called many others, but can't and don't want to remember them as I was virtually one of the biggest geeks in a small backwards country town.
