Saw this on another forum and had to laugh.

Edit Strike Forum said:
So here I am, sitting at my computer last night. I use Thunderbird as an e-mail client, and they allow you to use a custom .wav file for e-mail notification. So I played around on the net last night and downloaded a bunch of .wav files, some simpsons clips, some movie sound bites and so on. I finally settled on the Samuel L. Jackson quote from Pulp fiction. The clip sounds like this:
"*loud gunshot* Oh, I'm sorry did I break your concentration?"

Cool? Cool. So after that I threw on some headphones and listened to some .oggs, ending my night on Pantera's 'this love'. I had the headphones crancked because, well, it's a kick ass song you know. Now it's time for bed, so I put the headphones away, and I'm off. My computer stays on 24/7, and stoopid me forgot to turn the volume down. I ALSO forgot to close thunderbird.

You can see where this is going.

So here it is, 3:00AM or so, both my wife and I are sleeping peacefully, when out of the blue we are woke by a loud gunshout followed by what sounds like a man's voice coming from the other room. In a panic we both jump out of bed, wide awake, before I finally realized what happened.

We have a comfortable couch by the way.

Class :D

In my case this couldn't happen as I almost always have my headphones on rather than speakers... that said though, I'd probably crank up the volume on the cans while listening to some music and then die of a heart attack thinking I'd been shot (it's an age thing ;))

I've done that kind of thing before :<

Worst is watching porn at 4am and accidently yanking the headphones out the socket though... a huge burst of orgasmic screaming does not wake people in a good mood.

You're cautious, a bit paranoid. You left the scene for the suburban married life, but somehow, touble seems to follow you and piss on your mornings. You are quick to share your point of view, but have no problems with giving in to the requests of wives and wolves.

Your name alone strikes fear into others; but maybe, just maybe, there's a little vulnerability and weakness beneath that stoic, fierce exterior of yours.

Your inner child screams for cartoons and sugary cereals, but your adult tastes love the buzz of quality mind altering substances. Sooner or later, you're going to have to grow up, at least a bit.

Heh heh.

You talk fast, you think fast, you act fast. Stop. Calm Down. Drink some decaf and go back to hitting up liquor stores.

I'm a classy guy.

I had a sort of related incident.

I got myself a Mechanical Venus Fly Trap some time back, this thing actually works and for a laugh you can get it to burp every time it chomps and reopens.

The thing works on a tiny light beam, so it is always resetting itself. Consequently during the depths of the morning I come downstairs for a glass of water, turn on the light and it resets. I get my drink and all of a sudden there's an almighty *buuuuuuuurp* which scares the crap out of me.

Ever since then I've put it on "mute" :)

Happens to me all the time. I have IRC set to "Someone is in need of your attention" when my name is said. I also use my computer as an alarm to wake me up so the volume is set to high overnight.

Usually my name isn't said during the early hours and if I feel it would be I disable the irc script.

Every now and then it slips my mind and come 3-4am some American who wants to chat to me says my name and the speaker vibrations fling me out of bed.
