I fired up my clothes dryer and went off to do something else. From the other room I heard a banging sound as the dryer rotated. I assumed this was coinage I missed when I emptied my pocket prior to starting the washing and drying process. Being lazy and given that my dryer is an early 1970’s vintage Maytag I ignored the extra noise. A couple days later I emptied my dryer since I had some clothes from the washer to input into the dryer. When I was pulling the last bit of clothing out I noticed my USB Flash Drive at the bottom of the dryer. Ut-oh! I concluded that it was probably ruined. However, when I plugged it in it worked flawlessly. I am not sure how this will effect long term vitality but irregardless, I was still impressed.
