I was watching a show where some LEOs were clearing out a chop shop and found an air bag. They placed two 80-pound blast blankets over it then detonated it, both blankets bounced off the ceiling and the one on the bottom had a sizeable chunk torn out of it.

When I was taking my HVAC (automotive) class at the local technical college, the 'Electrical' class took an old airbag outside after class one day... They put it face-down on the pavement and ran like hell before detonating it. Sounded like a 12ga, flew higher than the 4th floor of the parking garage. No thanks. I don't own any cars with airbags, and I WON'T.
Also, part of the class, we were shown videos of what happens to people when airbags go off (since we do so much work under the dash/with airbags). One video showed a firefighter leaning into a car that had been wrecked to pull someone out when the bag went off. It slammed him against the 'B' pillar. HARD. The video later went on to explain that the airbag bruised his ribs where it hit him, and cracked his ribs where he hit the pillar. And HE had to be rescued in full gear.
Don't like them. Never liked them. I'll take good old fashioned steel around me over airbags.

Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

That had to hurt and to think someone thought that was a good idea.

Blocked from viewing. Maybe because I'm using FireFox.
I have to admit I laughed, par for the course alcohol appears to be involved, famous last words "hold my beer and watch this...."
