Roescher tells the newspaper that collisions of animals and vehicles happen often on roads in the area, but no one knows yet if there will be more damage because drivers are going faster.

I bet Newton knows.

Personally I am shocked that the carcasses were left roadside. No nearby Chinese retaurants ?

Is it any more damaging/dangerous to hit a hog at 85 mph than at 65? Maybe the Mythbusters could tell us.

2 to 5.

1.7 fold increase in kinetic energy. Not so bad for a javelina and a well-built car, but an actual hog and a civic+supercharger, I think that's a pretty big difference.

Separately, I have thought of a superpower that I would like-- I would like to be able to see timelapsed motion, both much faster and much slower.

Three dead hogs. Three dead hogs.
See how they ran. See how they ran.
They all ran out of the Texas bog,
Out for a morning or evening jog,
Did you read about them in the sherrif's log?
The three dead hogs.

This post should have been called "hogging the road".

I almost hit a pig once, but I was only going about 30. Slick roads, though, which means the pig got to watch me skid pretty good.

I was thinking about this the other day; if you could slow down your capture of perceptual frames enough, you could drive the mars rover in real (perceived) time. Wouldn't that be awesome?

You'd also need to have control of the Mars rover, the odds of which are only about 2 or 3 out of 8 billion lower than getting a superpower that lets you see timelapsed motion.

It wouldn't even really be a superpower, though. You just need to figure out a way to degrade that capacity. Some kind of targeted application of ketamine, maybe?

I almost hit a bison at 40 or 50. I was in a Corolla and that would have been very, very bad. It was in Yellowstone a few years back and I was driving back to camp in the dark after fishing. Stupid bison was walking in the lane in the same direction I was driving. I propose the rangers slap some velcro backed reflectors on those suckers.

Bison are Amish. Won't go for it.

In Texas, Armadillo is known as Flat Pig.

OK then, is it more energetic to almost hit a hog at 85 versus at 65?

If the manner of almost hitting a hog at 85 is actually hitting a hot at 65, then no.
