There's an entire not-so-niche thing here that involves landscaping with plants deer don't like to eat.

Thousands of them right in town.
I have thus far resisted temptation.
Almost everything we plant we look if it's deer resistant. NEighbor keeps loosing apple trees to them. I gave up and grow pears. Deer won't eat pear bark. They will eat the pears. Some seed and nursery companies place codes next to items for deer resistance. From the ones without the code it's pretty clear we are feeding them nicer than nature could ever do.

My sister totaled her car hitting a deer a couple weeks ago. Headed to my parents and hit it 5 min away after an uneventful 9 hour drive.
Had just passed an oncoming car, as she was recovering from the headlights it was right in the middle of the road. Didn’t even have a chance to slow down.
Glad she's ok. Yep, that's why it's considered public service here to kill them. All of us have hit a deer in my family. Everybody's been lucky they weren't full-on hits. My last one took out a front quarter panel, mirror and somehow cracked the windshield - must have bumped it's noggin. And still, it ran away.

Oh thank goodness you're here to point that out. Dunno what we'd have done without that piece of knowledge.
It was a gentler way of saying "clipping deer wasn';t killing people in the 70s, engineering has done little to reduce death by deer." Except maybe the airbags for the folks who then go off road and hit a tree.
Why don't you hide the entire holiday season with your micro-penis and come out next year.

THey've done little to combat postings coming through the internet regardless of penis size, which is almost always useless as a predictor of content.

All modern engineering has done is make hitting a deer $5000 in damage instead of $50. If it doesn't come through the windshield you not gonna die.
The crash safety stuff shows it worth when you hit other cars or immovable objects, not deer.

A friend of ours did hit a cow once. That was big enough the crash safety stuff proved it's worth.

FWIW the only deer I ever kinda hit the corner of the car kinda scooped it up and helped it jump in the direction it was going anyway. Like how you help a kid jump in the pool by putting their foot in your clasped hands and giving them some extra air.

Car and deer were both fine.

I hit a drunk dude like that once with a POntiac Montana. Dumb fuck tried to dance through 5 lanes of traffic. I scooped him and it tossed him to the grass, I PUlled over and he was fine, drove him home. He was so pissed "some asshole hit me and broke my bottle!" :)
