    A while back, there was a special on either the History or Discovery Channel about the catacombs beneath Paris, and specifically about this video camera that was found on the floor of one of the tunnels

    apparently it had belonged to a guy who was down there exploring and got lost, and started to panic and just started flat-out running around the tunnels until he just dropped the camera and ran off into the darkness

    they never found the guy

    it's just really unnerving watching that tape, and imagining yourself in that position, knowing that you have no idea how to get back to the surface and you'll probably die down there
    not as creepy (to me at least) as the footage I saw years back on a show about cave diving
    they were exploring a freshwater spring somewhere in Florida
    during the exploration of one of the side channels, they came across the body of a diver who had disappeared earlier and seeing the footage of this body in a drysuit crammed into a little nook of an underwater cave system really creeped me out

    I don't remember what show it was, or what specific spring in Florida it took place at but I did find this story about a very similar situation:
    http://outside.away.com/outside/features/200508/dave-shaw-1.html

    I'm on page four or so of this and it's absolutely fascinating

    Terrifying, too.
    yeah, it's a really good article

    I think I might be crying now.

    That was a really, really great read.

    That was a very interesting article, but this tagline
    What happened after Shaw promised to go back is nearly unbelievable—unless you believe in ghosts

    didn't really make any sense to me. Did I miss something? What part of that story was quasi-supernatural? Great read, don't get me wrong, I just didn't really see that part of it.

    Yeah, there was nothing supernatural about that. I had forgotten about that tagline by page eleven but that is mighty silly.

    You know what's great to get a full lungful of?

    Halon.

    One of the emergency fire suppression systems in my old track blew a fuse when we were about a mile away from the maintenance ramp in the middle of the night; I distinctly remember thinking, "If I die from an accident while on duty, does my family get paid from my insurance?"

    I was later informed that the answer is in the affirmative, which is comforting in it's own macabre way.

    Yeah, I understand this, kind of.

    I still think hitting a gravity bong out of a pool was not my smartest decision, looking back on it.

    So reading through the immense list of MSDS sheets we have, it seems chlorine gas isn't so bad, at least, not the way the sheet describes it.

    But nitric acid sounds like fun!

    Chlorine gas, great for burning your lungs.

    Re: Trench Warfare

    Yeah, I remember that, I just thought it was funny how our data sheets seem kinda nonchalant about what to do.

    "oh, just give him some oxygen"

    whereas our sheet on hydroflouric acid is like

    "GTFO!!! RUN AWAY!"

    The best thing is that HF is a weak acid.

    Weak. Fluorine. The most reactive element.

    Sure.

    and for me the story is creepier because there's much more detail and I can, as a diver, imagine very vividly what happened

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Prax Sanchez says he doesn't recall any serious hammer-and-nail mishaps in his past.

    Yet doctors administering an MRI on the 72-year-old Colorado man last month abruptly stopped the exam to tell him there seemed to be something metallic in his face.

    Right after the MRI, Sanchez coughed up an inch-long nail.

    His doctor, Jamieson Kennedy, told television station KKTV in Colorado Springs that the nail might have been embedded there as long as 30 years. The MRI's magnetic force apparently dislodged the nail, causing Sanchez to cough it up.

    Sanchez says he can't remember ever using a nail like it.

    "I'll probably frame it," he said Friday.

    How does this even happen

    Try leaning up against a chunk of sandstone that used to be part of a river bed thousands of years ago, eating a cold slab of pressed, processed "chicken" while bullets are flaking off slivers of stone on the other side of the boulder.

    man that reminds of that fucked up helmet cam video of a base jumper who's parachute doesn't open properly

    and he hits the cobblestone floor at the base of this cliff and just makes these noises, getting up and stumbling around on what must be broken legs.

    Forget how it got in there, how did he COUGH IT OUT? Was it up his nose? In a sinus cavity? Stuck in a pocket near his tonsils?

    If you want to see something gross/scary, there's a documentary called "A Hole in the Head" which is about trepanning. There are some online clips from it, too, but I'm not going to link them because... ugh. NSFW.

    When you have something stuck up there long enough your nose will basically form a sinewy cocoon around it to protect itself. The MRI machine probably had enough of a pull to loosen the nail from its tomb, irritating his nose causing him to cough / sneeze it out.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that noses are basically oysters.

    The one about the fucking space hairdresser and the cowboy. He's got a tinfoil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego. They're all made of fucking lego.

    reminds me of Carl Sagan talking about a dude who was convinced that he'd been taken by aliens as a kid and had some alien device implanted in his penis because there was a noticeable rigid mass there

    finally as an adult, the foreign body in his penis worked its way to the surface and it turned out to be nothing but collagen and cotton fibers
