Well, under any other circumstance I'd say: "that was pretty cool man...",
But an accident is an accident and it was no fun at all.

Audi has a real good design here.  I have heard other cars burn their
occupants' hands and face as the airbags deployed but in my case I
didn't experience anything other than a bit of the smell of the
detonator charge.

And HELLO it was!  The bags gushed out in a split second.  It was
really amazing.  I hope to never experience it again, though.
