Aliens have turned you into an ordinary housefly. Your captors will give you $1 million if you will fly toward the windshield of a car coming at you at 60 mph. They guarantee that you will not rupture by slamming into the windshield. Do you take the risk?


Answer

You do not take the risk. The acceleration of the air up and over the front of the car is so great that it will rupture you (or any insect trying this). Insects rupture before splattering on your windshield.
