    THINK YOU'RE HAVING A BAD DAY.... check it out, these are 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 post-mortem 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 clothed 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 doing the 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, the stretcher and
    dumping
    the
    husband out. He fell down the remaining stairs, breaking his arm.



    Still 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.



    Still 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.


    STILL 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, all two thousand pigs broke loose and escaped through a broken fence, stampeding madly The two hopeless protesters were trampled to death.

    What?! 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 bomb, he opened it and was blown to bits.

    I saw that one about the scuba diver on the show...damn i forget the name, but they discuss the urban legends and stuff like that. I thought it was very interesting, but they concluded it was fictional. But, i dunno, could happen I guess!.

    Now...You really think you having a bad day?

    Even if they are fakes, those are some terrible stories.

    Most of those stories are a bunch of hogwash. Notice that none of them ever actually have a reference to an actually newspaper, news magazine, or any wire service report where the storie can be confirmed. Don't believe any of it. www.snopes.com debunks nearly all of those internet urban legends and bogus e-mail stories.
