Black Boxes for Vehicles

The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had
covertly funded a project with the U.S. auto makers for the past five
years, whereby the auto makers were installing black box voice recorders
in four-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 45 of the 50 states the recorded last
words of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh, sh*t!!"

The states of Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and
Kentucky were different, where 89.3 percent of the final words were:
"Hold my beer, I'm gonna try somethin'."

In California, the most often words were "let me call you right back."
