The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged that they had covertly funded a project with US auto makers for the past five years, whereby the auto makers were installing black box voice recorders in four-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 that in 44 of the 50 states the recorded last words of drivers in 93.5 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh, S**T!" Only the states of Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama and Texas were different. In those states, 89.3 percent of the final words were: "Hold my beer and watch this."
When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.
