    Where can I buy a blazer which has a decent quality like, maybe a little less than the SuitSupply (up to $120)? Preferably stores from The Netherlands / Europe.

    Q: raincoats

    I'm looking for a single-breasted full length raincoat similar to Jos A. Bank raincoats, but with visible buttons instead of the hidden button type.

    Any suggestions?

    Would you rather be hit by a Jeep Wrangler going 30 mph, or a Honda Civic going 25 Mph?

    The Civic would hit you in the legs which may leave you paralyzed but probably not dead. The Wrangler has a better chance of hitting you in the chest and killing you. Although at those speeds both would probably suck equally :\

    I know. It is a real conundrum. :confused:

    As a pedestrian or as a driver in another vehicle?

    Both exactly the same.

    We need a physicist in here to really answer this question... too bad scientists are notoriously bad dressers and probably don't exist on the forvm.

    We are forgeting the fact that the more aerodynamic civic allows you a "rolling over" gambit that can be played. But on the other hand, the sloppy handling of the wrangler would allow it to hit you later, hence giving you time to evade all together. This is indeed perplexing... :confused:

    No evading. You must be hit by one. Nobody has answered yet. Which would YOU prefer?

    ya I'd feel the "rolling over the hood" tactic the best best here... I'm not in any way willing to test it however. For the record though, I'd truly prefer to be hit by a Rolls Phantom at either speed... at least there's the potential for it to be worthwhile! :nodding:

    The rolling over gambit would not be successful at the speeds described. Best I can suggest is that the lighter weight and slower speed of the Civic would have the greater likelihood for survival.

    I don't know, you might potential get reverse-sued. Citing "extensive damage to Spirit of Ecstacy hood ornament" :uhoh:
