    Yep, so often most don't make the evening news in my area. Many have gone unreported and found years later submerged normally during canal maintenance/dredging.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    My parents live out in the country, on a relatively straight stretch of flat road. On both side of their house are ponds, and both ponds are beside the road, separated by around 20 feet of grass and a barbwire fence. They've had two cars end up in one pond and one car end up in the other pond. I guess people just get overconfident on straight stretches of road and start fiddling with radios or cell phones...

    I was present during one of the incidents. I was in the kitchen when I heard tires squealing, a crunch and a SPLOOSH! I looked out the window, and here's this vehicle partially submerged in the pond, and I can see bubbles where it's taking on water. When I made it out there, the driver had extracted herself and she was fine, no other passengers. My brother towed it out with his Jeep.

    They're going to have a tough time starting them, proves you can flood the engine even with fuel injection.

    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    A couple of years back they found a van submerged in a canal. In it was missing teens who disappeared without a trace on prom night 18 years earlier.

    I see I need to find another spot to discard my old magnets.
