Default Biggest cable disaster?

Tell us your biggest cable disaster. Did you trip over your power cord and knock your $5,000 turn table onto the ground?

Well, let's see...

I dropped a spike from a KEF 107/2 through a brand new pair of Nordost Blue Heaven speaker wires, well wire.

Pulled the outer covering off an RCA connector with a cable that bound too tightly.

Pulled the wired from the RCA on a $400 cable.

Bought power cords that in a month when I re-arranged the system no longer fit.

Amoung others I'm just not thinking of now.

Moose,

That's not bad.... everything is spaced out pretty well!

I was awaiting the arrival of some new Ultra Link and Transparent cables to use with my Meridian G Series components, so in the mean time I used my back up Monster Cable. When the new cables arrived and I went to remove the Monster stuff it tore all but two of the G Series inputs off the back. After I nearly blacked out from shock I was pleased to realize it was a simple fix, but still, having nearly $15K worth of gear nearly damaged by cable was enough to make my heart skip a beat.

Ever since the arrival of HDMI my life cable wise has been sooooo much better. My life compatibility wise has been soooooooo much worse.
