That fire extinguisher is a real shin breaker, you'd be surprised how much your legs flap about upon a decent impact. My car had an airbag under the dash and I still got good bruises and skin off my shin.
you gotta make the most :cheers: :cigar: :burnout: out of your 20's, 30's, and 40's coz when you hit 50 the "engine check" light comes on. :?

Yes my mate was in a Peugeot 106 and had the classic accident of someone waiting to turn right on opposite carriageway, wheels on full lock, they got hit from behind, shunted into his lane, BAM. Lucky to escape without serious injury (guy is built like a mighty ox), but face and shins were where he got the impact. I'll try and find a picture.
I'm the one that leaves all those shoes in the carriageway.

That is very impressive - there's not much left!

Yes the fire brigade turned up and asked where 5he casualty from the Peugeot was... my mate walks over and says "here I am". They couldn't believe he was okay.
