Somehow we got on the topic of cars and one of my students asked me “If a new car got in a wreck with one of the first cars, which one would win?”
“What do you mean by win?” I asked.
“Let me put it this way; The new car wouldn’t survive, but the driver would. The old car would survive, but the driver wouldn’t.”
I was really thinking of the changes since the Chevy Corvair that launched Ralph Nader’s career, but I believe it works with earlier cars too.
