The car does not appear to look that old.  Does anyone have any idea why the airbags would not deploy or is this a sign of other shenanigans?

Orientals? You sound like my grandmother.

I never understood why "oriental" is offensive and you have to use "Asian". India, Pakistan, even part of Russia is in Asia. Why do they get to co-opt the whole continent?


That's what I think, too. Also, the word oriental sounds exotic and beautiful. I don't know why we only say it in reference to salads now.

I love this photo very much.  I think the last time I had "love at first sight" with a photo to this degree was the first time I saw this photo:


Agreed. I keep giggling each time I look at it and I have no idea why. It is precious.

RandyJohnson: How do you know when an Asian family has moved into the neighborhood?


Because their daughter backed out of the driveway into a car going down the street.

I



If it does have airbags (a Camry can be deceptive because the body hasn't changed much) I think there are sensors on the bumpers. Perhaps the bumper did not have much of an impact to deploy them.

There are sensors that tell whether the front end is crumpling from impact.
In this case, that is not the case.

In our family we call oldsters like this, "Toast".  When they do stupid stuff like this, we call them "Burnt Toast".

///The next day he borrowed my Honda "I'm not what the heck that damn thing is" (that's what I call it - it could be a Civic) and he propmptly wrecked it. Thanks Dad!


Are you....? You're stupid, aren't you? Or you just want your dad out of the way and figure the life insurance policy will cover a new civic?

Given all the weak "photoplasty" material Farkers are given to work with, I was a little surprised some comedy gold like this wouldnt make the cut for a 'plasty thread.

20 foot drop?

Those must be metric feet.

Airbags are generally deployed based on an accelerometer in the cabin that senses the sudden deceleration. In this case, the deceleration probably wasn't large enough to justify the system deploying them.

I've never heard of a system where they were supposed to be deployed because the bumper crumpled...

Agreed.  It is done by accelerometers, often located under the seat.  Therefore, the movie scenes of hitting a bumper with a sledgehammer and popping the airbags are sight gags only.

There is something better than the usual crap on the potluck table at the block party? There's an asian market nearby where there is exotic spices and kick ass vegetables and fruit that I never heard or seen before?

The carfax report on that Toyota will be a good read.
