But that has nothing to do with the OP's claims. It demonstrates entirely different principles.
Actually not as much as it might appear, as the human/male body at 180# really doesn't move as a high speed bullet drives in. Therefore the bullet energy is expended/damage is done internally.

The lack of Suburban "damage" from a 1 ft/sec impact comes from assuming that the human body simply moves as a unit backwards at a similar speed -- with little damage (if any) done at all.

But stop that gross body movement, and the Suburban's energy -- small as it might seem -- is expended in crushing the body's internal organs.

The examples are nor so far off as they seem.
