Yup.  If you type CTRL-C and something hangs, it's undoubtely your
fault.  You've probably disattenuated the potential relegator on your
hard disk spin control by excessive use of the control key.  This can
cause bits to fly out of your hard disk and lodge in your CPU, causing
momentary stunning of your CPU.

Probably you'll have to reformat your hard drive and possibly even
repaint your computer room to fix this problem.  Also, remove all cats,
as static electricity can be a known cause of all sorts of computer
hangs.
