    My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.

    I asked her, "Do you know him?"

    "Yes", she sighed, "He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since."

    "My God!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"

    And that's when the fight started.

    The National Transportation Safety Board had recently funded a project with the U.S. auto makers whereby they are to install a black box voice recorders in pick-up trucks.

    This project was done in an effort to determine the circu mstances in the last 15 seconds before the a truck crash. They were surprised to find in 49 of the 50 states the last words of drivers in 61.2 percent of crashes were, "Oh, S hit".

    Only the state of Montana was different, where 89.3 percent of the final words were:
    "Hold my beer and watch this!"
