    Upon looking at it again. I think it was the impact of the car due to the small overlap.

    Looks like the glass was already breaking, but its scary how close the head came to exposure to the accident. Those side curtain airbags can truly save you.
    Gentlemen, you can't fight in here, this is the war room.

    I think it was a fraction of a second before the head could have come into contact.

    This is bad news for KIA... (worse news for people who drive one!)

    Why in the world would they NOT install side curtain airbags?

    A couple of years ago, a Republican committee staff director told me candidly (and proudly) what the method was to all this obstruction and disruption. Should Republicans succeed in obstructing the Senate from doing its job, it would further lower Congressís generic favorability rating among the American people. By sabotaging the reputation of an institution of government, the party that is programmatically against government would come out the relative winner.

    From the crash videos I've seen I would never own a Kia.
