The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had, covertly, funded a project with U.S. auto makers for the past 5 years. The auto makers were installing black box voice recorders in four-wheel drive pickup trucks and SUVs in an effort to determine the circumstances of fatal accidents in the last 15 seconds before the crash.

They were surprised to find in 44 of the 50 states the recorded last words of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, ?Oh Shit!?

Only the states of Oklahoma, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Oregon, and Texas were different, where 89.3 percent of the final words were: ?Hold my beer. I?m gonna try somethin.?
