When I was at university somebody forgot to tighten the 10kg chuck on the machine shop lathe. When the lathe spun up to speed the chuck came loose, hit the floor at 2000rpm and took off like a rocket.

Years later the hole in the wall of the machine shop was still there. Pour les encourager les actress.
