    Now they're making obese crash test dummies. :facepalm:

    [​IMG]

    Humanetics, which manufactures most of the crash dummies used to clear cars for sale in the United States, is in the process of developing a new obese dummy to better mirror the U.S. population. The company already has a version in the works that weighs more than 270 pounds and has a body mass index of 35

    i bought my 4runner used in 2000. the guy selling only had SUVs on his lot, the majority of which were inferior (imo) Fords and Chevys.

    i asked why would someone buy those over the more dependable Toyota i bought? he said "the seats in your 4runner are too small for most of my customers."
    he was also about the size of the new dummies.

    Ever been to a hospital lately?

    They got wheel chairs that would seat 2 normal size men side by side.

    They should use that dummy as the standard for airplane seats. That way I'd have to stop breaking ribs in order to fit between 2 of them.

    A man I know is married to a nurse and she is disabled from trying to roll a patient on their side.
