The other day, I knocked my portable hard disk (for home PC backups) off the top of the filing cabinet and it fell about five feet to the floor (crash). Amazingly, gravity didn't win - the disk still works and I was able to restore a file from it yesterday.
On Saturday, my car lit a warning light which I didn't recognise - I had to look it up in the manual. "Warning! Exhaust system fault. Your emissions may be affected - consult a dealer immediately." I ignored my emissions and carried on to Tesco's, cursing technology and fickle vehicles all the way. Today the light is not lit! Everything's fine! (I hope...)
