Welcome to Librarium Online!
Here i am calmly replying to some LO posts when i start noticing something.
I have a hole in my sock that i've been fiddling with since i sat down. For some reason i didn't really notice but i figured hey! No biggy, its just a small puncture like hole.
So i keep on viewing and then after a while i hear a ripping sound. I look down and to my horror my cat has come and latched his claws into my sock. The poor bugger propably saw me doing it and thought it would be fine to do it as well.
So i calmly pick the caat up but he's not going down alone, he holds on to the sock. I pull the cat up and *RIPPPP* the hole gets larger.
After a quick combo of petting and putting him under a blanket (he always falls asleep after that) i return to my LO viewing.
But when the hand goes to the sock this time it finds not the easily tugable material of the sock but flesh instead.
I get annoyed and stand up to get a glass of water and then BAMM a splinter jabs into the exposed section of my foot. After a howl of pain and some basic field first aid i try to pull the material of the sock so that it will cover the wound...but to no avail.
As i'm giving up i hear a second series of RIPS and see that i've only made the hole bigger.
In my childlike tantrum state i manage to rip my sock in two, leaving me worse off than before.
Well thats my story. I hope that your sock does not fail you like it did me.
And watch your pets, have them spade or neutered. (poor buggers...imagine if the pets had US spade or neutered. I'd seriously consider assassinating my cat if i woke up and found that he'd...*shudder* i'm going to go and be nice to him now so that he doesn't get any ideas.)

Yeah, I agree with BobaHat. And, er, that was rather an unlucky day.
My rage got the better of me once. It ended with my sister going to hospital. For the reason that I threw her into a chair. This happened in year 4, 6 years ago. My advice, do not let your anger control you. While that sounds like something from Star Wars, it applies to real life as well. That particular incident didn't see me get off too well.
EDIT: It wasn't major, she was cut just above the left corner of the left eye. The only remnant is a scar. And I'm not exactly proud of what happned, although I do still get angry enough to do it sometimes. Last time I broke the bolt on the bathroom door when she ran in to hide.
Ravenwing: list made, now just to buy all the stuff on it (why do bikes have to be so expensive?)
ummm...that was interesting :blink:
Hmmz, socks can be evil like that, I think they're one of those I'm Evil And Will Conquer The World inventions...
Fortunately, I already anticipated this attack, and thus am not wearing anything except boxershorts. I suggest you follow my example lest the Sock of Doom strikes again.
Ze titles yez...

Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
At one point when I was just a grot I shoved my brother. For some reason he tumbled in such a precise manner to fall between his desk and a dresser and threw the second story window. He managed to grab a hold of a peace of furniture before he plummeted down about 12 feet onto the hood of my parentâ€™s car. Needless to say that'll snap you out of angry mode into a "holy crud" mode. I still remember seeing him with just his feet and a hand grabbing onto the desk, the rest was dangling out of the broken window.
