Out of the Blue

There are thunderstorms possible in this area every day for the foreseeable future according to the weather forecast. Even if I was to manage to overcome my aversion to grilling in the rain, I have no desire to become that guy everyone talks about who was struck by lightning, so this is really going to hinder the festivities in Manstovia for the time being, which is not making me happy.

Is it really that hard to break a car window yourself? (he wasn't underwater or anything)

It never used to be. I once kicked in a car window (rear door) to open the car to save a dog that was trapped inside in the heat.

Modern windows are probably a little more sturdy than ones in the 80s, but even so, shit, nobody could find a fucking brick to toss through the window??

Queue another big-ass lawsuit heading GM's way.

They're designed to blunt the force...do a youtube search on sparkplugs and car windows.

The trick with the sparkplug is ceramic, a tiny piece of it, thrown with full force against a car window, will shatter it. So breaking a car window is stupid simple, if you have a glass breaker in the car (which.. is required by law) then it's even easier. Side windows = 1 swing.

Am I evil that my first thought was "dementia" ?

And yeah, car features not being explained by dealers is a HUGE issue too. Just sad story all around
Where is a glass smasher required by law? It's not anywhere I've lived.

No you are actually right, I was wrong. It's not required by law (googled it after posting it.. hehe) turns out I have one though. So clearly it's common knowledge (I use my car like once a week)
