Do you think that, if a car were about to run you over, you could jump over and land unscathed?

    If a car were coming at you at about 30-45 km/h, do you think you could react fast enough to jump onto the car and run on it, then land more or less unscathed?
    I think about it all the time. 50% sure I'd react fast enough. 50% sure I could pull it off.

    I don't think I could jump on it; but I'm fairly confident I could punch it and have it flip over me.

    you dont know how many times this goes through my head... especially with the crazy taxi cab drivers in Manhattan.

    i always picture myself running on the roof of the car and flipping onto the hood of the following car like im jackie chan.

    I have no ups so I'd get clipped around the ankles and be in a p chase coma

    The flips are a bit much, but do your thing. But yeah, if a taxi's trying to pull a late left turn on the yellow, and I'm crossing, I'm sure it's easier than it looks.

    I read that as "pinch it", punch it I'm not so sure.

    Yeah yeah, get stuffed.

    I think about the train thing too. I imagine using the pusher's momentum to swing them onto the other platform where someone will do a citizen's arrest.

    depending on what kinda car, i think it's more than possible but very unlikely. i'd probably jump to help prevent my legs from gettin' ran over and smash my side into the windshield. they say that's the safest way to deal with that kind of situation. :scared:

    pretty sure i'd be able to jump the car, but landing unscathed is highly unlikely.

    unless i was kobe fucking bryant.

    I do think of this, i think if i wa aware it was gonna happen i could avoid atleast a massive collision where i get destroyed, i dunno about being unscathed, but i think i could jump enough to survive a charging car

    Sometimes when a big semi rolls past I think about grabbing on and hitching a ride. But then I never know where it's going to take me. :(
