Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Fritz Schranck looks at a report from Georgia Tech about us'n's running off the road and hitting stuff. Like trees.

I didn't take the time to look, because I am stereotypically lazy, but the fatality results might also have something to do with the average age of vehicles travelling rural roads. Older cars without airbags, or with less sophisticated crash-resisting structures, or with less effective brakes, might be more prevalent in rural areas than they are elsewhere. Might be a nice thing to look at, just for grins.

Anyway, just remember, kids--speed doesn't kill--it's that sudden deceleration when you hit something that kills.
