Mass vs. New Technology: Who wins?

Wow. This video was sobering.

I watched it last night at about 11 p.m., and promptly sent it to my friends Kai and Michael. We've all been talking about car safety a lot recently. Michael introduced us to this very informative "car safety information aggregator" site:, and we all ran out and bought minivans. Geeky, but safe.

Other tests proved more intuitive. On a level playing field, new safety technology might prevail. On an unlevel playing field, well, see for yourself.

I'm a pretty health-conscious guy. My daily commute is about the riskiest thing I do. Fuel economy doesn't mean much if you get squish, just like grape.
