I am amazed that anyone would actually question Slide's account of what happened to him in the accident. Is it necessary to argue about EVERYTHING?


Well, as it turns out, he did embellish it a bit, didn't he?

OMG.

Bob, you see. There are just a few people I don't take seriously at all. Rockwell and Aces are at the top of that list.

Rockwell has always struck me as a sad bitter man. But who knows how he got that way> the only person I know in my own life who is like Rockwell witnessed his own father's suicide so when I run into someone like that, I always figure there was probably some personal event that shaped them into such an unnatural state. My guess is always an abusive father. I have no idea what happened to Rockwell, but I'd bet money something similar happened to make him so mean spirited.

Having handled hundreds of auto accident cases, I can assure you that a rear end hit will cause the body to lurch forward and back in a snapping motion. (That's where the term "whiplash" comes from.)

If you're not wearing a seat belt you can easily be thrown into the front seat or the windshield.






We all know what whiplash is and its effects. However when someone says they were thrown through the windshield from the back seat when rear ended it sounds just about impossible. Unless the speed was incredible it sounds rather difficult to imagine being propelled from the back seat through the front windshield from a rear end collision. Compounded by the fact if you take into consideration that it was a child as opposed to an adult therefore the weight involved makes it even more incredible if you take physics into consideration. I really believe that in his answer he explains what happened. That being he was only 8 and really does not know how it happened and possibly exactly what happened other than a terrible accident and he got hurt. Thankfully it was not more serious.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

The simple answer to your question about Rockwall is those who don't know how to have a good time are always jealous of those of us who do it easily.

Someone should PM Rockwall and let him know that he's involved in this thread, apparently.

Rockwall's posting in this thread this morning is not enough for him to know that he is involved in it?

Don't know where you learned physics, but it's obvious that a light weight child is going to be tossed around a lot more than a heavier adult.

And, as I've said, hitting the windshield or dashboard (if you're not strapped in) is hardly unusual in a rear-end hit. (And it's even more likely when the driver in front slams on his brakes immediately after the impact, as they almost always do-or when they are pushed into the vehicle in front of them.) Not"incredible" at all. It's actually common, as anyone who has investigated innumerable auto accidents can tell you.

Scrolled through the entire thread TWICE and didn't see that.

Wow, that's quite the Psychoanalysis doctor for simply pointing out the truth. And if what I posted was inaccurate, please explain how.

I doubt the people on this forum whose opinions I respect and care about require an explaination.

That's what I figured. You can't. Maybe we should psychoanalyze your narcissistic personality disorder that is characterized by your numerous posts about your successes, sex life, etc.

•Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).

•Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.

•Believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).

•Requires excessive admiration.

•Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.

•Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.

•Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.

•Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.

•Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.
