      Great question!

      In my job, the craziest thing I’ve ever done is watch a test on an electric car, where the battery is heated up so that it catches fire, and then the complete car burns so we can see how the passengers are protected. It doesn’t normally happen in real life, but we have to check in case it does! The test was successful and all the pasengers were safe for a long enough time that they could escape.

      In my personal life, I travelled to the Himalayas in India, and while I was travelling in a bus we were caught in a landslide with lots of rocks falling from the mountains above! Luckily we were all fine and it stopped after some minutes.
