Think about the most spectacular event you personally witnessed in your

I saw a woman pull in front of a pickup truck from a side street and the
truck swerved, left the ground, and did a 180 in the air before landing 30'
in front of me.  They got out and no one was hurt, but the image still
lasts for me.  Of course if that had happened recently there would be
dozens of pictures on Youtube, if only after the flight, which no one would
have been quick enough to get.

Now - what sort of link can't you find in your archive folder?
