My aunt send me this message today:

The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had covertly funded a multi-state project with auto makers where black box voice recorders were installed in 4-wheel drive pickup trucks and SUV’s in an effort to understand the last 15 seconds of a fatal accident.

The Board was surprised to find the recorded last words of drivers in 48 of the 50 states were all the same: “Oh, SHIT!” Only the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota were different, where the final words were:

“Hold my beer, I’m gonna try somethin.”

You gotta love all of us from the upper mid-west.

    Hehehe…funny they didn’t have one in my car when I crashed. “Hold my beer I’m gonna try something” wouldn’t have been too far off.
