You walked away largely unscathed from this one?
The insurance company wrote it off and wouldn't allow me to buy back the wreck. I was completely unharmed, not even a stiff neck. Couldn't sleep for weeks after though.

I believe it....the noise from those collisions is not something you forget quickly.  I still remember my worst wreck....that feeling of "slow motion" just before impact is true, I felt it.  Had I not managed to swerve in the manner I did to avoid the worst impact, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be here.  That car didn't have airbags.

That slow-motion is unpleasant to say the least - I remember making the conscious decision not to swerve and bear the brunt head-on because the choices left and right were far worse. If it had been a front-engined car I wouldn't be here to tell the tale.

Quite clever to make that choice Dean.  Sounds nasty. 
 
You are more likely to be KSI as a passenger because when and accident occurs the driver tends to try to swerve away from the point of impact.

Driving at the moment as Cincinnati public transport is shocking. I used to take a 40 minute train ride when I lived in CT and I'll be busing it or walking when I move to Boston in a month.

Dean - I used to have an MR2 Spyder two seater convertible that was wonderful for back roads, fortunately I never crashed it but it was loads of fun for the 5 years I had it. Currently drive a BMW 328xi that is easily the nicest car I've ever owed.

I traded it in (with a Jeep Wrangler) on the BMW.

Sad to see that nice MG crashed Unhappy  I love little sports cars, they don't make them anymore, Ian I'm pretty sure the MR2 was a joy to drive, always loved those.

no.

Have you considered teleporting to school?
 
Yes, I agree, you should at least consider teleportation to school.

How is teleportation cheaper than walking up my stairs?

Walking upstairs needs energy and energy comes from food and food costs money. 
 
Teleportation is completely made up therefore costs nothing.

It was a trick question, the correct answer is there are many more bands other than Journey I'd want to listen to on the way into work.

Exactly. I try to avoid becoming stone dead as much as I can.
