    I once shorted out an entire hospital [Granada Hills Hospital in California].

    Boy, did I feel silly.

    Long long time ago whilst I was working at a factory some of my work colleagues offered me some cannabis during a break...I had never taken it before and 15 minutes later back at work...I suddenly started to get chest pains, my heart was pounding and I genuinely thought I was having a heart attack. My Supervisors were concerned and the on-site doctor called for an ambulance, once I'd found my way to hospital the symptoms began to subside but I didn't dare say that I'd been smoking cannabis on my work break (for fear of dismissal) and it was a nerve wrecking experience hoping for them not to figure out what I'd been up to and concluding that I'd wasted their time with just a cannabis induced panic attack...nothing was said by the doctors (at least not to me!) and they sent me on my way with a few painkillers. I then had to find some way to lie about what happened when my supervisors asked what happened. I felt like a total muppet and guilty as hell.

    Once I went to school without my pants on. Oh wait, was that a dream?

    I was elected by my group at work to represent them in a final summary speech in a training class. Midway through my mind blanked out. I looked out at a sea of faces that weren't believing what was happening. :redface: I finally managed to blurt out a bunch of cr@p that somehow sufficed. It was horrible. And they still continued to look up to me. :uhh:

    When I was 8 years old, I shaved my eyebrows off. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I looked surprised for about a month.

    That rules out just about everything that I could possibly relate.

    Nope. :biggrin: It was ultimately deteremined that I was not at fault. The CAT scanner that I was repairing has been miswired when it was built, and this is what actually caused the failure. I just happened to be the one who got to work on it and throw the power switch. Of course, at the moment that the lights went out in the ER, OR, ICU and the rest of the place, no one knew this, including me! :surprised

    Been there. THAT is a terrible feeling! And there is no escape. You have to stand there and do SOMETHING. :uhh:

    I've done a fair bit of public speaking but brain locks still terrify me.
