The Incredulist: Fake airbags, soccer player crash and fitness on the road
Last Updated: 213 days ago
Here are the top three stories that made the Incredulist for October 17.
AIRBAG: If you haven’t seen an airbag deploy, check out the video to see what it looks like on a crash test dummy. We follow this up with video from a criminal investigation where the feds were looking into counterfeit airbags that are made in China and sold to repair and body shops. They tested ten airbags and all ten failed.
SOCCER PLAYER: Belgian soccer player Jonathan Legear is known for his ability to drive the ball up the field. but can he drive a car up a street? Apparently not. A security camera got footage of the midfielder crashing his Porsche into a convenience store. Legear says he pressed the go-pedal by accident instead of the brake, which is not a great excuse when you make your living with your feet.
TREADMILLS: It’s a long road from tractor-trailers to treadmills. Truck drivers are on the move more than anyone, but they also sit for hours on end which is why many of them want to be active. There is help on the way. Snap Fitness is opening gyms at truck stops nationwide, starting with one at the Flying J on I-20 in Dallas. For about $20 a month, truckers can now stop for a workout.
