in alaska we just turn on the windshield wipers and keep going...

Personally I give the moose a 6. Nice spiral and excellent straight legs with hooves inverted, but she didn't stick the landing.

haha omg I can't stop laughing...

I cracked my bumper couple months back myself, ran over this big doberman in middle of road I was doing about 65, talk about disintegrating canine. Luckily only cost 200 bucks to repair.

Whew! Glad you were able to repair the doberman.

And you would think with these prey mammals having eyes on the sides of their heads they could see 2 fucking cars coming up

Should this be considered *eia?

sanderbossays...

Physics is weird. So if I were to be hit by a car, I could be launched into another car just like this poor moose? I would have expected that I would stick to the crashed windshield of the other car until it slowed down??

sanderbossays...

Ah, now that I have slowed down the video I see what is going on (thanks VLC). The moose is not launched towards the car, it is just moving upwards and to the other side of the road as the point-of-view car moves in rapidly for the kill.

I am from the city, what are the rules for which car's owner gets to put the moose in their fridge in this situation?

Can anyone tell for sure if it's a moose or a deer?


The colour and size have me wane towards Female elk. Moose are generally darker and built differently, its more a deer then a moose, but its more an elk than a deer.

My three cents.

Nah because the speed at which cars move is much faster than anything their genetics tells them to fear. Their eyes can probably see it fine but the disconnect could be in their brain not behind able to process angles of this huge beasts coming at them at an incalculable speed.

With the advent of cheap quality cams, infinite storage, etc. It probably wont be long before car insurance requires little cams around all car corners. Liability will be as simple as reviewing the footage from all cars nearby.

Lifecasting will become the default. We'll all wear pendant cameras around our neck at all times. Nothing will go unrecorded, but we'll share the good parts. How many terabytes would be required to store 80 years of life at say 720P?>> ^deathcow:

Totally! And then next our dreams will be recordable like the Wim Wenders film "Till The End Of The World" and then all bets are off.>> ^dag:

It's a deer. There is a saying with hitting moose.

"If you see two legs, you stand a chance. If you see four, you're dead."

Er...something like that. Been a while since I lived in Minnesota.

schlubsays...

Yeah, that doesn't look like a moose - it's too small. Hard to tell with youtube player's crap-tacular seek ability, but it definitely looks like a deer.

Assuming 4 Mb/s compressed, about 1200 TB, but that's including when you're asleep, where a camera could perhaps stop recording. Not that much, really, I thought it would be more, so maybe I messed up my calculations.

YouTube has over 48 hours of video uploaded every minute these days, so must have massive amounts of storage, although after deduplication, it's probably only about 30 seconds...

Even more incredible, the automatic face tracking and tagging, will make it possible to follow someones life entirely in 3rd person from everyone else's camera, with only few outages where you can alwaysgo into 1st person.

silvercordsays...

Definitely not a moose. Hitting a moose is like hitting two thousand pounds of bricks that are propped up on four poles. The moose comes right through your windshield and, if it's not knocked out or dead, proceeds to flail everyone in the car to death. That is, if you are not dead yet.

dagsays...

Yes! And when you can stitch together everyone's camera view, you've invented virtual time travel - with the ability to view anything at any time.>> ^gwiz665:
