Gee, I thought a handbrake worked like this:
You meet a girl, decide it ain't so bad, possibly get married and before long you notice something holding you back from all the stuff you used to do with your mates. That's how a handbrake REALLY works. You can still go forward, sometimes reverse, but there's this 'dragging you back' effect that can be hard to recognise until someone else tells you or the light registers in your mind.
I can also tell you how an airbag works if you like:
You get a nice car, manual V8 sort of thing, and you find a half decent piece of road to give it a bit of stick. But the moment the speed rises and any sort of G-forces are sensed by the airbag device, you hear a loud outburst and your progress is halted immediately. Some people can have ringing in the ears for some time after the airbag goes off. Airbags of this sort are normally only deployed in the passenger seat (just in case you wanted to know). Note that 'airbag' and 'SRS' are not necessarily the same thing.
