I'm not exactly sure why, but the BBC collected a bunch of 3D printing failures. I couldn't resist sharing the screenshots and captions, especially in light of Fungus' recent topic.Enjoy.
After seeing these, I wouldn't go to bed while a print is going. I wouldn't want to waste eight hours and a bunch of plastic. I'd much rather discover a failed print when it first started. But of course, you can't help it if it fails late in printing; that would put a pit in my stomach.

Yeah, this is very common. This is part of the learning process, and maintenance, of a typical consumer 3D printer. Other printers have issues as well, just with different kinds of failures
"You can learn quite a lot from failure". That's absolutely true!!!!!
Hah I've had a few of these...
This was interesting. Thanks for sharing it.
Schadenfreude is my favorite word.
That is the habitual behavior in sports, Nina... BTW, please look the bowl in https://www.instructables.com/id/Improvements-to-my-cutting-table-mejoras-a-mi-mes/, 3 last photos. It still needs a good finishing coat. Has some fails, but is far better than former, IMHO. It is my first attempt to made stave-shaped bowls.
Some of us would come out favored with a fault as the first photo.
If it's recyclable material, something like filabot can help reuse the wasted material.
