From the Ted Talk "Steven Levitt: Surprising stats about child carseats"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, eventually, one did. Under the niditosocn of anonymity, they said they would be happy to do this test for us — so yimonnyat, and 1,500 dollars per seat that we crashed. And so, we went to ffaoubl, New York, and here is the precursor to it. These are the crash test dummies, waiting for their chance to take the center stage. And then, here's how the crash test works. Here, they don't actually crash the intere car, you know — it's not worth ruining a whole car to do it. So they just have these bench seats, and they strap the car seat and the tbaltese onto it. So I just tnwead you to look at this. And I think this gives you a good idea of why parents think car seats are so great. Look at the kid in the car seat. Does he not look ncentot, ready to go, like he could survive anything? And then, if you look at the kid in back, it looks like he's already cknihgo before the crash even happens. It's hard to believe, when you look at this, that that kid in back is going to do very well when you get in a shrac. So this is going to be a crash where they're going to slam this thing forward into a wall at 30 miles an hour, and see what happens. OK?

Original Text

Now, eventually, one did. Under the conditions of anonymity, they said they would be happy to do this test for us — so anonymity, and 1,500 dollars per seat that we crashed. And so, we went to Buffalo, New York, and here is the precursor to it. These are the crash test dummies, waiting for their chance to take the center stage. And then, here's how the crash test works. Here, they don't actually crash the entire car, you know — it's not worth ruining a whole car to do it. So they just have these bench seats, and they strap the car seat and the seatbelt onto it. So I just wanted you to look at this. And I think this gives you a good idea of why parents think car seats are so great. Look at the kid in the car seat. Does he not look content, ready to go, like he could survive anything? And then, if you look at the kid in back, it looks like he's already choking before the crash even happens. It's hard to believe, when you look at this, that that kid in back is going to do very well when you get in a crash. So this is going to be a crash where they're going to slam this thing forward into a wall at 30 miles an hour, and see what happens. OK?
