my personal bitcoin horror story: once I sent transaction 182 btc as payment for pre order of new miners. those miners later changed everything and put ASICmimer out of job. ASIC miners was biggest at this time and pays usd 1.6 mln (avg) per week to share holders. So, this transaction required few things to be put into comment field. when I click send I was not able to see address as usual, but only comment. I thought that I put comment into address field and sent 182 btc to my comment instead of bitcoin address. I tell to my self I’m done with bitcoins. Next morning it comes out that transaction went ok.
