True story – was once in the hospital and the fellow sharing the other bed had done exactly that, while cleaning his gun. He lived on an island, a few miles from the mainland, so he had to wrap it up as best he could and drive himself to the ferry. When they got to the mainland, an ambulance was waiting for him.
I had heard this had happened, so imagine my surprise when I shared the same room with him. There was an arch over the middle of the bed so as to keep the bedding away from him (it). He went for his first pee while I was there, and I could distinctly hear painful shrieks emanating from the washroom..
