Re: Wear your seatbelts!!

Good vid Curt! It's simple physics.... I'm glad there's finally a video reinactment of that stuff happening rather than just the crash dummies we see all the time. I feel naked without my seatbelt on!

Re: Wear your seatbelts!!

Something like this happened to a guy in my company. Everyone had their seat belts on in the car. They were T-boned by a car running a red light causing him and the guy next to him in the back seat to crack skulls. He went in to seizures instantly and they thought he was going to die in the hospital.
Now he's just a little off kilter takes medication daily for seizures and kind of zones in and out from time to time. Real smart guy too, I guess he got lucky to come out of it the way he did and not become a veggie. They other guy was fine aside from a concussion.

Wearing a seat belt saved my life a time or two.

The two times a seat belt saved me, I was a passenger. I'm with Zobx... I feel naked without it.

Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway.
