Ralph Nader advocated for seat belts long before he advocated for air bags. Just sayin'.

Preston Tucker was doing that 15 years before Ralph [spit] Nader.

Calling a book Unsafe at Any Speed, though? You have to admit that was genius.

I am hoping that NOS was not in the car-seat at the time.

Oh wow. That was amazing. Bet you were glad NOS wasn't with you that day.(Cold shivers down the spine.)
I bet every day after that feels shiny and new...
Happy anniversary, Jokemeister!

Yes, it was excellent marketing.
No, NOS was not in the car at the time. If he had been he would not have celebrated his 1st birthday, let alone his 11th.
It took me about a day to have my heart stop hammering, incidentally.

The angels were absolutely working overtime that day. For you and NOS! Someone whispered in your ear not to take him in the car to give Mum a break.

Sheesh! Good old guardian angel. How's the knee these days? Can you predict rain with it? Also, what happened to the utter imbecile?

The knee is OK, although when I kneel it sometimes make a faint "pop" akin to the sound of a knuckle cracking.
The imbecile was hauled off by the police and, through my lawyer I found out that he'd lost his license for a year.

Wow, I'm glad you are still here and blogging.
I am more than doubly glad your son wasn't with you.

I evidently have a guardian angel too. I should have died a whole bunch o' times and got away with scratches.
Mr. Lemony had a similar accident to yours. He was driving a Saab, pre-airbags. The broken glass slightly cut him, he broke a few ribs but also walked away. When I saw the remains of the Saab in the insurance company's junkyard, I couldn't believe he wasn't killed.
I'm glad you lived to tell and have suffered no serious lingering injuries. Also beyond glad that NOS wasn't with you!

Thank Goodness the Guardian Angel was watching closely!
