Another first for women under Obama – Crash Test Dummy


Seriously. Well sort of. For the first time in over 30 years of federal crash test research of cars, there is finally a smaller dummy meant to represent women. And the results are disturbing.

But the new female model is unusually small, and meant to represent a 12yr old as well. (4ft 11in and 108lbs). By comparison the standard male dummy is 5’9″ and 172 (wheras the avg male is 5’9″ and 195 , avg female is 5’4″ 165#).

Now- when will they start including women and children when testing for safety in prescription drugs?

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
