A businessman embarked on a two year campaign of hate after a woman accidentally bumped into him in the street.
Michael Scott, 58, tracked down the 23-year-old woman who he claimed had not apologised for colliding with him in the street.
After the brief encounter in Worthing town centre, Scott spent two months making repeated phone calls pestering her.
During calls Scott, of Stewards Rise, Arundel, told his terrified victim she would be sold into slavery and shipped to the Middle East.
A man tried to stab a house-mate after a row about leaving the loo seat up.It'd just be awesome, wouldn't it?
Sanjhiv Auchraj saw red and took the toilet seat away altogether after his patience snapped.
He scrawled a message on the cistern telling others living in the shared house to leave the lid down in future.
Clifford Meaden was asked by other residents to speak to Auchraj about the missing seat, Brighton Crown Court heard.
Auchraj, 44, who had been drinking, was in bed in his room when Mr Meaden asked him where it was.
Auchraj told him he had thrown it in the bin and then jumped out of bed brandishing a 12ins kitchen knife.
