The Black Box

The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had
covertly funded a project with the U.S. automakers (GM and Ford) for the
past 5 years, whereby the automakers were installing black-box voice
recorders in 4-wheel drive pickup trucks and SUV's in an effort to
determine in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds
before the crash.

They were surprised to find in 48 of the 50 states the recorded last words
of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh $hit!"

Only Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan were different, where
89.3 percent of the final words were: "Hold my beer, I'm gonna try something."

Cheesehead by birth regards, and surprised the number was so low...
