      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

The post by Richard_noggin in the Bike Thieves Suck thread triggered an old memory.

 

I used to work in a laboratory that was adjacent to a manufacturing floor. Someone on second shift had figured out a way to jimmy the door to the lab without our knowing it. At first he/she sabotaged computers and monitors with acid. I asked that a camera be installed, but when management did nothing, it got a lot worse.

 

I was having my first cup of coffee that morning. I took a sip and this strange hot feeling swept down from the top of my head in a wave. I started to feel dizzy so I sat down. I took my sweater off. I was still losing it so I went to the floor. The next thing I knew, I was laying on the floor with people standing over me. Then I hear someone shout, "Wei is passed out at her desk!" We had been deliberately poisoned by laboratory chemicals! Wei and I spent a few hours in the hospital until our blood pressure returned to normal and were sent home. The detectives interviewed a few people, talked about lie detector tests, but basically gave up after a week or so.

 

They never caught the culprit. He/she had put the chemical in the coffee machine the night before and when we brewed it, it went from the reservoir to the pot. More than one sip and it would have killed me. Scary shit, man.

That's cool story. In that case, probably the night watchman just lost his job. In our case, the guy would have gotten ten years in prison for attempted murder.

That's a bizarre story you told Catbird. You're a lucky bastard to be alive. That kind of shit seems so "Agatha Christy" but obviously does happen in real life.

It's kind of ironic. Climbing is supposed to be dangerous, but something wierd ends up getting you instead?
