Is this the same type of airbag that`s in my dash...for my safety...right in front of my FACE?

Just like the folks in the video probably got that airbag out of a wrecked car... You should always wear your seatbelt and sit as far back as possibly comfortable.

I had a tierod break and lost control of a 07 vehicle with "modern" air bags and hit a tree headon at 65 mph and neither the driver or passenger airbags deployed

"An acquaintance of my sister - a petite woman - was riding with her husband when they had a minor accident. The bag went off, breaking her neck, and she died instantly. Just horrible."

Oh god I am so screwed.

Makes me wonder if they should be adjustable since a five foot, 100 pound woman gets the same treatment as a 6'4" 300 lb linebacker.

Modern ones are often adjustable, at least at the more expensive end. Auto-adjusting in some cases, with sensors detecting things such as seat position, restraints used and even the weight of the person.

That happened because of deaths, like your sister`s acquaintance. The early models were calibrated for an average adult with an average seating position and not wearing a seatbelt, so they were wrong for probably most people.

But they`re still not safe for very small people, so children should always be in the back.

I had a concussion and a burn on my face from an airbag. I think a plastic bit from the dashboard also hit me, I'll never know. Never saw it coming, was reading the newspaper in the passenger seat. :[

I hit a tree once at 5 mph. Meant to hit the brakes while parking though. It was only a bump, but the airbag deployed and broke my nose and gave me two black eyes. I lied and said I was defending a woman against a pack of rapists.
