Haven't had that one happen, and hope I never do.
The one that drives me crazy is to put three hooks near my vice, do a few things, look back and there are only two. Where do they go?

I'm torn, between picking out which recipe to tye, and the joy a rising fish gives when he falls for it.

Winding hackle (especially parachutes), and the thread breaks. You get to watch everything you just did unwind itself in slow motion.

Hey Jimmie they go where all of the right handed gloves go!
I hate putting my scissors down and having them disappear! Like I haven't moved from my chair and they are gone.......then they turn up in the dogs dish or something!

I was doing a weave on a rod and my tweezers vaporized. That was over a year ago and I still have not found them. I think they may have dropped and bounced into the heater vent. It's the only place left. It also fits with Murphy's law of selective gravity.

"Any object dropped will gravitate to the nearest small hole from which it can't be retrieved." (Jimmie....Neal?)

Flanigan's corollary; "Murphy was an optimist." He also wrote the Flannigan's finagelling factor; " The number when multiplied by the answer you got, gives you the answer you should have had."
