I like the last one about the gold dust being lost, only because it reminds me of when I was in a big chemistry-based corporation - apparently in the past they had done an inventory of the chemical stores and found a large bale of platinum wire had gone missing (worth tens of thousands from memory), and it turned out someone in management had taken it home to use for building a chicken coop and that sort of thing.
