THINK YOU'RE HAVING A BAD DAY .... check it out these
actual cases. Fire authorities in California found a
corpse in a burned-out section of forest while
assessing the damage done by a forest fire. The
deceased male was dressed in a full wet suit, complete
with scuba tanks on his back, flippers, and face mask.
A postmortem test revealed that the man died not from
burns, but from massive internal injuries. Dental
records provided a positive identification.
Investigators then set about to determine how a fully
clad diver ended up in the middle of a forest fire. It
was revealed that on the day of the fire, the man went
diving off the coast, some 20 miles from the forest.
The fire fighters, seeking to control the fire as
quickly as possible, had called in a fleet of
helicopters with very large dip buckets. Water was
dipped from the ocean and emptied at the site of the
forest fire. You guessed it. One minute our diver was
making like Flipper in the Pacific, the next, he was
doingthe breast stroke in a fire dip bucket 300 feet
in the air. Some days it just doesn't pay to get out
of bed. ___________________________________________
Still think you're having a bad day? A man was working
on his motorcycle on the patio, his wife nearby in the
kitchen. While racing the engine, the motorcycle
accidentally slipped into gear. The man, still holding
onto the handlebars, was dragged along as it burst
through the glass patio doors. His wife, hearing the
crash, ran in the room to find her husband cut and
bleeding, the motorcycle, and the shattered patio
door. She called for an ambulance and, because the
house sat on a fairly large hill, went down the
several flights of stairs to meet the paramedics and
escort them to her husband. While the attendants were
loading her husband, the wife managed to right the
motorcycle and push it outside. She also quickly
blotted up the spilled gasoline with some paper towels
and tossed them into the toilet. After being treated
and released, the man returned home, looked at the
shattered patio door and the damage done to his
motorcycle. He went into the bathroom and consoled
himself with a cigarette while attending to his
business. About to stand, he flipped the butt between
his legs. The wife, who was in the kitchen, heard a
loud explosion and her husband screaming. Finding him
lying on the bathroom floor with his trousers blown
away and burns on his buttocks, legs and groin, she
once again phoned for an ambulance. The same paramedic
crew was dispatched. As the paramedics carried the man
down the stairs to the ambulance they asked the wife
how he had come to burn himself. She told them. They
started laughing so hard, one slipped, tilting the
stretcher and dumping the husband out. He fell down
the remaining stairs, breaking his arm.
having a bad day? Just remember, it could be worse...
The average cost of 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 being released back into the wild amid
cheers and applause from onlookers. A minute later, in
full view, a killer whale ate them both.
think you are having a bad day? A woman came home to
find her husband in the kitchen shaking frantically,
almost in a dancing frenzy, with some kind of 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, breaking
his arm in two places. Up to that moment, he had been
happily listening to his Walkman.
think you're having a bad day? Two animal rights
protesters were protesting at the cruelty of sending
pigs to a slaughterhouse in Bonn, Germany. Suddenly,

a broken fence, stampeding madly The two hopeless
protesters were trampled to death.
STILL having a bad day?? 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.
There now, feeling better?
