Reminds me of a Keller Williams song.

Making it even better, after my buddies called the police, they got to be interviewed for a couple of hours while the cops matched all park goers to their cars. As I mentioned, this was after they had enjoyed their first round of (beverages) golf. Talk about the ultimate buzz kill.

46YearOldSlinger knows. He was there.

I posted that story somewhere on dgcr also so I can vouch for the accuracy. I actually had a vehicle broken into in that parking lot and a couple of crates of disc stolen 2 days before the "fire".

A book I read years ago had a scene where a witness to a "witch"-burning was made uncomfortable by the fact that the smell...reminded him of dinner.

I've often said it: I'm sure our human meat is at least as tasty as that of a cow or a pig. I mean, I hope I'm never forced to confirm it, but...a million cannibals can't be wrong...

That's horrible.

The guy who tried to commit suicide on a course while I was there slit his wrists in a snowstorm; he got euphoric afterward and made bloody snow angles. The paramedics who picked him up said the cuts were not life threatening, which...I guess you can lose a lot of blood and live because there was A LOT of blood. It was the week of the Ice Bowl and it never warmed up that week, so there was bloody ice frozen to the bench by 15's tee during the event.

Holy crap. Some of these stories...Welp the worst thing I've ever had happen to me on the DG course is I had to get a tetanus shot after scraping my shin up against some rusty barbed wire that was hidden in some tall grass. Thats nothing compared to some of the stuff on here. Yikes.

I read somewhere cannibals refer to human flesh as "long pig". I assume because we taste like chicken.

I mean these nurses are baddasses, they deal with unimaginable things, but the leeches were out of the question. I was like, heck...this is just ice fishing. She did pretty well with the finger and was discharged a week later or so.
If this thread were titled Horror Stories of Kindergarten Field Trips, I'd post about going out on a riverboat. A barge passes us and things get really choppy. My teacher lost her balance and ended up hooking her wedding ring on the railing of the boat as she fell to the ground. Snapped her finger right off. And into the Tennessee River.

I've been spooked by both wearing rings and handrails for the last 35 years.
