Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Video on Friday 28 March 2014

This could be our favourite moment in sweet, sweet karma – perhaps even of all time. The story is: A lady (who is filming the whole thing) is being tailgated by this guy, on a slippery wet road. The guy rages in his truck, finally shooting past and popping a huge middle finger. [This post first ran on our technology and gadget site, Techly]

Tristan Rayner Editor

Somehow, it accidentally falls from the plane, and tumbles down, spinning furiously (and we see a cool effect of recording framerate/spin-rate almost matching) all the way. And it keeps recording.
