And if that wasn't bad enough, imagine what the Vimes in the other leg of the Trousers of Time would have been hearing, as everything fell to bits around him.
What really makes that nightmare fuel for me: what could kill a troll a golem and Carrot within 14 seconds? Also no mention of Nobby, Colon, Angua or Downspout, meaning they probably died at the River Gate or in Peach Pie Street. (I was tearing up writing that)
Note also that all Vimes' coppers die before the bastards finally get him. What do you want to bet he's watching them throw themselves between him and the sharp edge?
And then there's Leshp. Made creepier by the fact that we never actually figure out what's up with it.
