    I got about 3 things from that page.

    1) He's a yuppie idiot that calls his wannabe suv a car. I hate that.
    2) Unless he got brain damage from the accident, he can't remember anything which points to the fact that he was probably talking on his cell phone, listening to the radio, and drinking hot coffee and eating an egg mcmuffin, which are all good excuses to not watch where you're going.

    3) He left out God on the list of who to thank, and instead cursed Him in the final sentence. Maybe He won't be so forgiving next time.

    And, knarly crash....good to see he survived!

    I agree with items 1 and 3 fully. but as far as #2, I was involved in a scary(to me) accident, I was sober, not on my cell phone, and stopped at a red light. I was rammed in the back by a truck who i guess didn't want to stop. but i don't remember anything after the initial impact. although I wasn't injured and the s-10 blazer I was in was repairable. the mind has a tendency to blot out things that can be tramatic. I am still paronoid when sitting at red lights and constantly keep checking my rear view. but he still should have thanked GOD!!!!!! he was ok! maybe next time he won't be so lucky!

    I'd rather side swipe the car next to me then worry about hitting something that big when I'm going alot faster then it.

    Actually I have done that (tried to side swipe and not rear end) in my old 77 ford van...
    The guy to my left got out of the way in a hurry when he saw me turn the wheel into him! Left some nice figure 8 skidmarks on the hwy doing about 55mph.

    Interesting. I didn't know those jeeps had such solid looking t-case supports.

    The damage fits his story. The passenger side looks like it was just peeled.

    He should have thanked God...cursing him is pretty dumb all things considered.
