I think sheer panic and gravity play a part... I imagine that opening a car door outward while submerged isn't the easiest thing in the world, and punching hard enough to break a car window or windshield would be tough as well. Either way it must be a pretty terrifying way to go, ugh.

You can't open a car door until the vehicle floods enough that the pressure basically equalizes. So, I'm sure that plays a part.. And I'm certain the MAIN part, you've nailed.. Just sheer panic.

I suppose, especially on vehicles with power windows.. You hit the water, the electrical system shorts out, so the windows aren't coming down.. You try to open the door a few times, and cannot, you give up on that and just start beating the windows.. And you're likely not going to break them with your hands.. But.. If you wait a minute, let enough water into the car so that the pressure pressing outwards is close the the water pressure on the outside pushing in.. The door opens fine.

There's the UM tip of the day..lol.. If you drive into a pond, lake, pool... Sit back, relax, let the water fill the car about halfway and try the door again.

The Bible code segment.

It was a waste of film, production personnel, and frankly Michael Shermer's time.

Definitely, but I do love his reaction. "Wait a minute! You've made all possible predictions--which is no prediction at all."

And then the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme as the person starts panicking after the door still doesn’t open.

Yes! And the same is true for the James Van Praagh segment. But I really hope Shermer comes back for Netflix UM!

I saw the coin scan segment from season 2 last night, I had forgotten all about that one. I would say that entire segment was a waste of time due to the fact that the victim(s) were incredibly gullible in the first place to think it was legit.

I'm going to disagree with you there. This segment at least brought awareness about the coin scam to a broader audience. Scams like this and Spanish lotto can be very convincing depending on the scam "artist".

On a personal note, this is one of the segments that stuck with me when I was a young UM viewer.

I see your point, but if the con artist was as obvious as the actor who was playing him and they still fell for it, then they probably deserved to get ripped off

Good call... that was frustrating. I wonder if those waitress sightings of Patricia Meehan were accurate too. RS said "confirmed" sightings, so I assume they were but who knows.

Everyone who claimed they saw Lisa Marie Kimmell and her car after she was already deceased and her car was hidden/buried.
