Kinetic Energy


It's full o' hills around here, and I'm not used to that at all.

I slid my car seat all the way back the other day while I searched for something, and I forgot to slide the seat forward again afterward.  Noticed while driving around that I could barely reach the gas. This has happened many times, and I just reach down, adjust it while I'm driving. There's not a big consequence on a level ground.  But not a good idea around here, reaching the bottom of a steep hill while applying brakes for the upcoming light.

I slid forward with such velocity that it seemed the seatbelt was about to cut me in half---felt just like when I've been hit from behind by another car. If I'd been leaning forward another inch I would have busted out my teeth on the steering wheel.

There's an awful lot of us too stupid to be driving.
