My Hiteker DVD player. Had a disk with too many MP3's on it I think.
Tried to start playing it then it locked up and TV screen went haywire and no buttons would do anything (on remote or main unit)
Had to power it off and on at main switch to get it to work again.

P.S. A new firmware update has since fixed this problem.

Would have to be a home built trolly (like a little go cart with out any engine)
Anyways I was going quite fast down our road then suddenly lost control, the wheels went on to the grass and the whole thing flipped over, with me inside.


:D Thats my crash :D

As things go, my mind is about as random as you can get...

lol @ Lizard, I feel like that too somedays.

umm I'd have to say forklift... into lots of things, pallets,coke ( on a pallet ) toilet paper etc etc..

although you more likely see things falling off the forks than the forlift crashing ( you're ment to be good drivers you see ) but the worst I've seen is when I was 2ic and the head storeman was reversing the forklift back from a truck and 75k worth of wine "just slid of the pallet" ... I was pissing myself with laughter and well you can imagine how happy the boss looked...

A mate rolled a golf cart at a bucks party golf day! I caught the whole thing on tape! It was just like Jackass for those of you who have seen the movie.
$700 it cost him for the repairs :)

We were towing my mate on a CRX bonnet. We turned at the end of the padock and he went flying off and hit a fencepost with his thigh.

His thigh was fine. It was the fencepost who was injured. This was a band new fence and he had snapped the post off in the ground!

I was diving with a propulsion unit (closest match pic on short notice (http://www.planetscuba.net/images/scuba/courses/specialties1.jpg) or maybe here) (http://www.discountdivers.com/pix/aeris.voyager1.jpg)
anyway I was so busy admiring the view I went thru a school of Giant Trevally (http://digilander.libero.it/scubabob/Aldabra/images/carangide.JPG) very pretty till I turned into them & ran into another diver :-/

Had to buy the guy a beer afterwards to make up for it :-D

Well if its cars we're talking about... I gave a mate a lift home on the bonnet of my '84 Celica. The clutch was buggered, and when I went to change gear down to first, to go round the corner into the driveway, the car shuddered and lurched, and he went flying off the bonnet face first into the ashphalt (the rough stuff). His face was all cut up, but trooper that he was, he gave a bit of a grin and tried to walk the rest of the way, but he was staggering a bit, and was bleeding all over the place. I had to drive him to the A&E (two stitches) and explain for the ACC what happened. So there you have it - I crashed a friend! :D

When I was about 10 I crashed my friends go cart. We were doing laps on his paddock and I took a corner too fast and wound up heading down a slope towards a fence. What made it really fun was when I tried to hit the brake I missed and jammed the accelerator all the way down. I was so busy trying to brake/fix the accelerator I didn't notice I was heading for a fence post.

The go cart and fence post suffered very little damage.



My most impressive looking crash was when we found some old motor oil and used it on the bearings of our skateboards. It made them much faster down the hill (we were just sitting on them). The oil somehow caught fire about half way down so it looked really cool when we crashed & rolled with flames.

Lol nicely done! Wish i was there to see it


Haha i just crashed myself. We were swimming in a creek and we have this rope and log across it and i can usually swing and land on it standing but i managed to miss it and then swing back into the log with my hip.

Dont worry! the log didnt sustain injury :P

Ouchy ooow it hurts muchly

I find the easiest thing to crash is a shopping trolley. They seem to be designed NOT to go in the direction you point them and insist on going sideways. :-)

Anybody can crash a GX-10i
Thats not hard....

Crashing a 5120 is another story ;-)

Ive crashed the fan speed control app on my XBox. I would try any speed and it would just max it out until I rebooted it.

Ive also crashed a router, now that was scary.... Getting a 404 when you know the connection is fine :-(


Chill.

Was waiting to be served at a Noel Leeming counter not long ago and leaned my elbow on a handy nearby shelf. Big mistake. Shelf and contents came crashing down scattering small appliances everywhere. That was definitely one time in my life that I wished the ground would open up and swallow me whole. LOL

I sort of crashed my calculater yesterday by pressing "pi" a few hundred
times, then a random number, it just went dead...

Wouldn't that be more like "it spent a lot of time trying to work it out"? ;)

Actually, I didn't think I'd ever really crashed something random, but two years ago while in Christchurch airport, I rang a payphone from my cellphone. I'd done this quite a number of times before and never had trouble, but this time when I hung up on my cellphone, the payphone kept ringing.

Stupid as it sounds, I got outta there pretty quickly for fear of someone looking around in suspicion. I presume the phone eventually stopped ringing after the "timeout" period. :D

Note to anyone who wishes to try it, in NZ, payphones cannot accept incoming calls (some exceptions may apply...).

How about making a hard drive crash with a degaussing coil? :D

At work we wanted to see what would happen to the HDD if we used the degaussing coil on it while the PC was on. We used the coil and tehn we got a lovely grinding noise from the HDD and the heads on teh HDD crashed and made a lovely big groove in the platters. :)
