I have a petrol driven garden shredder- (keen and serious gardening wife!)
I had a cordless phone which slipped from an overall pocket.
When I couldn't find it a cold and dreadful possibility came to mind.
My by now symathetic spouse dipped a hand into the last of four sacks of shredded shrubs and came out with a 1cm scrap of dark grey plastic.
With a drive worthy of the best crime scene examiner I spread out and sifted through the rest of the sack.
I found almost enough to make two, and for a while kept the bits in their own plastic bag as a quiz item - Q: "What was this?" i never saw it slip in, and the shredder makes enough racket hide any screams. (Who dunnit authors please note. You can find shredders which will accept tree limbs up to 10" diameter.)
I once dropped my laptop into Dover harbour from the deck rail of an oceanographic survey vessel. The machine was switched on at the time, and I could see the screen glowing in the murky water as it sank from sight.
I imagine the battery's run down by now.
