I was 12 years old, and helping my uncle work on the sewage lines at my grandmother's house. We had a deep hole dug, and the clay pipes were wide open. I told him I had to use the bathroom pretty bad, and he said "Ok, just don't flush." Let's just say this was a "job" that required me to sit down. When I was done, I instinctively reached for the handle. As soon as I depressed it, I realized what I did, and yelled out the window to my uncle "I'm sorry! I'm sorry! Look out!"
Fortunately, he heard me and was able to jump out of the hole in time.
Ok, so it has nothing to do with PHP, but I just had to share. Aren't you glad I did?
Liz, don't feel bad... I am a Lotus Notes programmer; one of the things we do is replicate databases to keep them all up to date. One day after making a bunch of code changes, I replicated my changes to the production server. But I replicated the wrong database; I ended up sending a year-old database into production! Needless to say the IT Support person got a lot of nasty calls and emails. I told her I would look into it, and immediately replicated the correct database. Fortunately, no data was lost, so I didn't tell anyone what a bonehead I was. I just told them that Lotus Notes is really buggy and that I would look into what happened. For some reason, I was never able to "find out what happened..."
