How Is This Even Possible?

Reviews called the Fusion "balanced," but this is ridiculous.

A pileup during Snowpocalypse 2011 (aka Snowtorious B.I.G.) along New Hampshire’s I93 resulted in one of the most implausible accidents we’ve ever seen. Somehow, despite physical probability dictating otherwise, a Ford Fusion ended up perfectly balanced on its nose, sticking straight out of the snow.

    I'm very excited for my trip to New England… I live California tonight on a red eye to Boston, then up to Vermont later in the weekend. I believe my rental car will be a Fusion as well. Maybe I can try and recreate this for Hooniverse.

    My 2 year old was a little grumpy on his way to daycare this morning. On the last corner before the daycare, I did a big powerslide in the pathfinder, overcooked it a little, and then rather than tank-slap the kids, I let it slide gently into a snowbank, calling out "OH NO, WE'RE GOING TO CRASH!" 4-5 seconds before impact. The kid has never laughed so hard in his life. I've never been prouder.

      Next, we'll be seeing the Fusion on the cover of a Wheaties Box

    8.5, not perfectly vertical, deductions from the German judge.

    Looks like the coders screwed up reality's physics. Hopefully they'll release a patch soon.

    Cold Fusion is here at last.
    And it's already gone horribly wrong.

    Bet you can't nosestand a Fusion…. Ok double or nothin!!

    The Fusion is a decent car, but the handling tradeoffs of its nose heavy layout are inescapable.

    This guy should be in NYC. Anybody here can parallel park in a space one inch smaller than their car, but only a true New Yorker can vertical park.

    In other news, University of New Hampshire mathematicians reported a surprising incidence of flipped coins landing on their edges . . .

    I saw that on the news last night, and I couldn't figure it out, either. BTW, the video has been taken down.

    They were probably from Mass.

      As a New Hampshire driver who's spent plenty of time south of the border, fitting in down there is an art form. A violent art form.
