Perhaps Not Getting the Point

October 24, 2001

Just saw a State Farm commercial about how they make car-safety videos for teenage drivers. To help them understand the physics of a car wreck, they tell them that a 40-mph collision is like dropping a car off a four-story building. And it is. So they drop a car off a four-story building.

The kids in the commerical are thinking, "There's no way I could come out of this unharmed." I'm thinking, "How do I get to be the guy to shove that car off the edge?"
