TIL that one of the guys in my graduating class was nearly killed when he rolled his truck during spring break. The truck rolled 6 times and he was ejected from thing because he wasn't wearing his seatbelt.
Dude was kind of a douche, but that really sucks. My first question was, "Was he drunk?" because he's the kind of guy you would expect that from.
To be honest, that's the first time I've ever heard of someone surviving because they didn't enable a safety mechanism...

There was a drunk driver car crash a few years ago where the driver, wearing a seat belt, was killed. The way the car was crushed it surrounded the passenger, not wearing a seat belt, who had been thrown on the floor.

My dad's a Firefighter and as such is a first responder on scene. He's got plenty of stories about stuff like that.

But of course he has seen MANY millions of more cases where the seat belt is saviour and no seatbelt sends you too hell.

There's too many variables in serious collisions. For general safety and normal and less serious circumstances, seatbelts = good.

TIL that shotguns can fire if they get bumped hard enough and that it isn't required too much force for it either.
Luckily, I didn't learn this of personal experience.

My sister got into a car accident once when she wasn't wearing her seat belt and she flew out of her seat, broke the windshield with her head, then flew around some more and eventually wound up in the passenger seat. Luckily, the only reminder she has from the crash is that she occasionally gets aches in her leg, and I don't know if that even happens any more.

Growing up I knew a guy who had shot out of the windshield of his car and slid down a gravel road on his ass.  His whole ass was pretty much scar tissue and it was possible to poke him with a pin and have him not notice.

That's incredibly sad while being incredibly comical at the same time.

modern shotguns (at least ones made by US gun companies) are equiped with mechanisms that prevent that exact thing from happening. Of course...my dad has a shotgun (double barrel with exposed hammers) that you can set off just by hitting the hammers. It's also over 150 years old.

TIL that you can give what is essentially a sunburn by scrubbing on your skin with a damp towel. I learned this scrubbing paint off my arms.

TIL (or was rather informed) that I smile like an idiot whenever I talk about a certain girl.

Surprised? No. Did I realize it? No.

It's okay, one time my aunt asked me what my girlfriend was like, and apparently I got all blushy and mumbly and picked up a pen and started playing with it.

TIL that in Canadia that the learners permit is 14, while in Arizona, it's 15 and 7 months, Lisence is at 16, and that is a graduated permit or something, then at 17 I get a new one, then 18 I get my actual license. Each time I get a new license, I get new privileges i.e. having more than one other person in the car. Although at thirteen I can drive tractors for farms within 5-10 miles from your area of operation depending on where you live.

Yeah, drivers licensing regulations are kind of a joke. In Georgia, it's permit at 15, Class D license at 16, which carries a 12:00 AM-6:00 AM curfew, no passengers who aren't immediate family members for first six months, no more than 1 non-family passengers for second six months, and no more than 2 non-family passengers until you turn 18, when you get your Class C unrestricted license. It's a good idea in theory, I guess, but when I had my Class D I had passengers all the time. Cops can't pull you over because they suspect you of breaking any of those rules, and half they time they don't even cite you for it. Depends on how big an ass the cop is.

Fuck Joshua's Law, saying you have to have driver's ed to get your license at 16. Driver's ed is good if your teacher isn't a lazy fuck, and your driving instructor doesn't make you drive back-ass roads where the speed limit is 35.

Doesn't matter now, though. I have my unrestricted license. State of Georgia can't do SHIT.

TIL that one of my friends is happily married and pregnant with child. I wish her all the best and I hope she has a girl so she can name the child after her mom who lost her life on Flight 77. I'm just really happy for her since she shut herself down emotionally in high school after her mom died. Seeing her happy now...make me happy. That's all I want in life. c:
