My favorite story is about a satellite link that went haywire every Friday at 3:00 PM.  The company that owned the link immediately blamed the software in their communications controllers.  Systems analysts were dispatched on site, and try as they did, they couldn't find a software bug that could be responsible.  Finally, by dumb luck they found it.  A bunch of factory workers let off at 3:00 started their weekend with a parking lot beer party and threw their empty cans in the satellite uplink.  A shift of security guards fixed that.
