You are busy making instructional driving videos with a world-record holding hypermiler, when the suction cup camera mount fails and your exterior camera falls off the car... An Oldsmobile following your Prius seems to intentionally swerve to SMASH the camera as it lays in the road...
You recover the camera only to find that the memory card has self-ejected! Losing ALL your instuctional footage on pulse-and-glide, driving with load, and timing lights!


(True Story)

Might go out to look for the memory card some more later......
