SD Card + washing machine...FIGHT!
6 months ago
I "lost" my memory card, a Sandisk Extreme UHS-1 16GB model. For the life of me, I know I have two of these suckers but I couldn't find the second for a shoot the other week. I had to use an old Eye-fi card instead for the second camera.
1-2 weeks later, it was in the bottom of my washing machine, where coins typically collect. Plugging it in, voila! Still works. What a pleasant surprise! I've probably laundered about 3 loads of clothes.
