"That's the one day I saw a linux server crash..."

Most unbelievable part of the story. Cracked me up.

It happens. I sent a dev server into a kernel panic when I kill -9'd a hung ddd debugger. This was about 15 years ago, on a 2.x kernel. Pretty sure that issue has long been resolved, but Linux isn't bulletproof.
