The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had
"covertly" funded a project with the U.S. automakers for the past 5 years,
whereby the automakers were installing black-box voice recorders in
4-wheel drive pickup trucks in an effort to determine,
in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the crash.
They were surprised to find in 38 of the 50 states the recorded last Words
of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh S_ _t!"
Only the states of Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia,
Oklahoma, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana and Texas were different, where 89.3 percent of the final words were:
"Hold my beer, I'm gonna try somethin."
