New type of crash test aims for safer vehicles [Video]

I like this idea of crash test. It really puts a new challenge to car safety designers. Now we can see even the most popular luxury car could not perform well with this new crash test. Good job to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
It's known as "Small Overlap Crash Test".

Eating Angry Bird

My sister's friend bought this as souvenir from Ipoh, and I ate it. In other words, I killed it! Haha...it is now dead. Digested in my stomach. :-p
Wonder what it is? It is actually a dumpling. Assorted with blended peanut paste. Steamed to be surved. Innovative. Kids would like it very much. Some may not even feel like eating it, because it's cute.
