    I would just chalk it up to being hungover and a mechanical malfunction or whatever on the plane.

    I was 18 years old and was driving home at 2am. I was used to going to bed around 9pm during this era. Needless to say I was super sleepy. I rolled up the windows, turned on the heater and didn't turn on the radio. I also didn't have my seatbelt on. I fell asleep. When I awoke I noticed that I was about to miss my freeway exit and made the snap decision to simply slow down and drive down a slight embankment from the freeway to the offramp. That was last thing I remember. I rolled my truck 1.5 times to the right. I was thrown from the vehicle because I didn't have my seatbelt on.

    The left side of the cab took the brunt of that first impact from rolling. When all was said and done the cab was crushed down to the dash board on the left side, bending the steering column a few inches from the force. If I had been wearing my seatbelt I'd be dead. I had landed in some heavy bushes and apart from some cuts/bruises suffered no long lasting or serious injury.

    I wear my seatbelt now by default. I don't even consciously have to remember to do so.

    This was stupid on many levels, laff. I shouldn't have been driving, but since I did I should have rolled down the window and turned on the fan. Cold air would help to keep me awake. Shivering kinda does that, initially. I also should have turned on the radio, loudly. WTH was I thinking when I decided to "off-road" the downward embankment. No seat belt? Odds say that it's more likely to help vs. hurt my chances at survival.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft

    I will never say stupidity is always the cause of someone's downfall, i will say showing your intelligect too much can get you kill.
