Impressed.

It's a good thing the car didn't figuratively fall on him, otherwise the girl might have had to resort to prose.

That's why I use Johnnie to hold up my car.

That's awesome. Amazing what we can do under great amounts of stress. Take me for example, when faced with incredible danger and insurmountable odds I am almost superhuman in my ability to flee like a cheetah with my arms waving in the air, screaming like a little girl.
 
2012-08-01 10:04:57 AM
But what happened to Jack?
 
2012-08-01 10:06:10 AM
The important thing is that I am okay.

The violent explosion of feces from your body is a very effective predator deterrent.

I'm Jack's complete lack of support.

Never buy your vehicle support devices at Dollar General or Big Lots.

Just don't.

THIS. And I throw a wheel under the car (on it's side) for an extra degree of protection.

So how much damage she do to herself in the process?

Cool for the girl and all....but really, the dad deserved to die for being a dumbass...use stands asshole!

I don't even get out of bed for anything less than California hot. Swedish hot, if you can get it.

I'd let her save me... or something. I could never do these right.

Good for her though. Made all the right moves and saved her dad.

The 22-year-old just graduated from Mary Washington with a physics degree, but while looking for work, she decided to return to something familiar to earn a little money

Great story and I am glad about the happy ending.

That said, the reporting of this quote from the girl's mother, Liz, made me want to cry: "She got his heart beating again and got him breathing again," said Liz. "So, she's it. He gave her life and then he gave her life. I am in awe of her. I am in awe of her. She is the day. She saved the day. I can't even tell you how proud I am of her."

Cry from anger at the combined failure of proofreading / quoting the excited utterance of a mom without giving her a chance to say something thoughtful about the situation.

The harbor freight jacks frequently break, but you should never trust your life to any jack. The Harbor Freight jack stands seem to be as reliable as anything from your local auto parts store.

No BMW owner is going to do any kind of vehicle maintenance. They'll take it to the dealer.

I will buy, like, sandpaper or a cheap screw driver set from them, but nothing that might have to save my life.

Agreed.

Himalayan Freight jack stands are actually quite good. Jacks are a whole other ball game.

You make a valid point. Now, I don't know what to think.

Why does the article focus so much on the girl knowing CPR and pretty much gloss over the girl throwing a car aspect?!?
 
2012-08-01 11:57:13 AM
Good on her.

I'm a bit confused by the "she got his heart beating again" part though. CPR won't restart your heart. Well, okay, to be fair, it's just very, very, very unlikely to restart a heart. It would be cool if this super strong girl can also fire electric shocks from her fingers though!
 
2012-08-01 11:59:36 AM
So. Bravissima to the physics major + lifeguard + superhumanly-strong daughter.

However, a word of advice to the old man: wheel chocks + more than one jack. I think it's pretty standard practice. Relying on a single point of failure to save your life, when a backup system is less than a hundred bucks, is idiotic.

I'm disappointed this wasn't the Boobies. I worked in a shop where I was safety supervisor. Seeing one of my guys working on an improperly supported machine never failed to evoke a stern ass chewing.
