I guess if it’s my blog I can occasionally stray from my mission of folding back all the layers of the life insurance onion and just throw out a bizarre one.
In Eugene, Oregon recently a man was saved by his seat belt when he blacked out and ran into a parked car. Not that big a deal, right? Well, according the article in the Oregonian, he blacked out because he was choking on some fast food, and when he hit the car, his seat belt induced a Heimlich punch and he chucked the sandwich, saving his life.
Bottom line. Wear your seat belt.
