    My car seat friends are dieing to know...

    Someone found a video episode of Главная Дорога where the guys test car seats. They stick eggs in the crotch area, do a rather slow crash test and show whether the eggs broke or not. The eggs are fine for the shield booster, a funky polish harness, and for the rear-facing 5 point harness, but break for the forward facing 5 point harness. Anyway, my friends want to know what the purpose of the testing was. Was it really to see how car seats protect "the family jewels"?

    The purpose was to make a show and they played with Russian words for greater fun. If those "tests" have prognostic value is a question of discussion but I doubt they are adequate for many reasons. Namely "family jewels" and eggs have very different crash characteristics (brittleness/elasticity).
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
