airbags are cool because they're SAFTEY EXPLOSIONS
@catoutofbed vaccines are cool because they're SCIENCE JUICE
@catoutofbed Your seatbelts also explode
@catoutofbed There are tiny charges attached to your seatbelt that retract it in case of a collision to keep you in-place
Intern at work got in a massive car wreck just before starting and he said he had temporary deafness from the seatbelt charge
These might only be in newer cars
@witchfynder_finder erm like
you know what i mean
Except the temporary deafness
@catoutofbed fun fact about airbags! they go off so fast that if you have a cigarette in your mouth when one hits you in the face, the cigarette will go clean through and a fireman might bring it over while the tow truck crew is scraping your car off the jersey wall with a spatula and show you the charred inch-wide hole it made! ask us how we know!
@catoutofbed But aren't explosions hot?
@BatElite not nessicarily
in this case the explosion is used as a gas generator to inflate the airbag in under 60ms because thats really hard to do otherwise
