I'm starting a new category of post, with the tag of 'TROTS'. This is the first post of that category and fittingly enough, it has to do with a horse. (By strange coincidence, I could also call the category 'ROTS' and it would be just as fitting) Anyway, without further ado, here's the first TROTS.Horse on the 12th floor
What were the circumstances that caused a person or persons come to the conclusion _this_ needed to be done? (Fitting - Ha! I just got that...)
Or what was the plan that failed (or succeeded) is so spectacular a fashion? Speaking of plans, I'm planning to put together a short-story along those lines, and post it as a comment. Feel free to do the same, if you're so inclined. My idea for this post, and the ones like it that are likely to follow is to see what I can come up with. I'm leaving the comments on so other people can take a shot at it, if they feel especially inspired, and because I'm really kind of curious to see what, if anything, results.
My first guess is a practical joke gone horribly, horribly wrong.
No points will be awarded for researching and posting the 'actual' cause, because:
1. It's the story that is the point here, you pedantic douche :-p
B. This is not snopes.com
&. Making sense is not a priority.
