This person suggested cars aren’t as safe as they used to be and was schooled on basic physics
Today’s entry from the subReddit ‘murdered by words’ comes this exchange on Tumblr from a couple of people who were hankering back to the good old days when cars didn’t crumple on impact.
Back to a time when cars were made out of steel rather than aluminium, before the rise of capitalism meant everything was made with a view to be replaced rather than maintained.
Except, er, well. This is how it panned out.
Redditor RainyMeadows offered this concise summary.
‘To put it in much simpler terms:
If the car doesn’t crumple, YOU WILL.’
