When I first was DM, back in early 80's, IIRC, when we only knew AD&D as RPG, I had one such players. After several warnings, when the party was travelling a desert, he did the last straw (I cannot remember the exact one). Then I told the party that a piano has fallen from sky unpon his character. Some angels appeared, took the piano, and apologized, but the character was dead. "Not all angels play harp" was my explanation.

He took the message and did not join our D&D games any more.

Then the RPG community in Barcelona was quite small, and I was surprised, some years after that, in another gaming club whose people was not related with the one where this occured, when I heard talking about "falling pianos" as a threat of DM's wrath...

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.
