Oy. Hard to choose my favorite, but I do believe it is the “crash after 5000 bytes of unsaved changes.”

But it was really hard to choose!

Thanks for that.

I like KT's favorite, but mine are the ones under Other Options in Hidden Settings.

errr how do you kill yourself with pastry???

eat enough butter pastry and it should do the trick I guess...would probably make you puke first though.

Judging by some of the terminology, i guess a Brit was responsible for this humour...

Definitely British, probably an Englishman or a Scotsman, but I couldn't work out the pastry bit, either! Quite a hoot, though. My favourite was the sodding paper clip when I least expect it (totally brilliant), but the bum wipe got me falling about big time!
