RE: Seat belt pre tensioners.
After letting that post go, I wondered, was this too much? Would he be offended? I know I have a sick and weird sense of humour.
I was inspired by a bachlor party held for a mechanic years ago. He had to go a "rebus". (Don't know the english word). Blindfolded, he had to go from "station to station" to perform "duties". One of them was to enter a front passenger seat, stuff in some crackers, and be able to whistle in a certain amout of time. If he couldn't whistle on time, he would receive a severe "punishment".
When time was up, a girl took his head and pulled it to the headrest, while a colleague induced a release signal to the "gurtstraffer". And whoof, out came the crackers. The blindfold probably kept his eyes from popping out. And the sound he made was priceless. Everybody involved still laugh when this story is mentioned. We were a bit concerned about his spine before the poak. Hence the girl in the back. We all agreed this was over the line, and someone could easily get hurt.
That's why I always recommend SRS problems get immediate dealer attention, before something happens. Without delay. A colleague of mine once had a nice old lady calling for assistance. The yellow airbag lamp was shining in a VW Golf. He came, he saw, and he said it was probably some minor thing. He told her to use the car and call the dealer on monday. On monday we received a call from the nice old lady, asking if the operator in question wanted to come and see her lovely pair of black eyes and a broken nose. That's what I call a double bummer.
Bachlor parties live their own life. I think getting someone real drunk, and placing him nude in bed in the sleeping compartment with no money on the night train from Oslo to Copenhagen is bad. But very funny twenty years later. The exeption might be if the whole gang is onboard somewhere, and the party were to continue in Copenhagen later. Maybe that's why I never got married and chose to live in sin?
