It may not be as fuel efficient, but I consider my time to be worth much more than the few dollars that I would save by driving slower. Owning a self driving car would enable me to make better use of time while I'm forced to be on the road, but in many cases would still rather cut the drive time from my trip.

Driving 75 mph instead of 50 mph reduces my drive time by about 33%.

You'll see it over and over again. People believe what they want to believe and what they want to believe is often what is in their best interest to believe. Don't get me wrong, people do not set out to close their minds to opposing points of view, but it usually takes an overabundance of evidence by a trusted party to convince anyone to change their minds, no matter how intelligent they are. As a corollary; the longer someone holds a particular view the more difficult it is for that person to change that view.

Of course I could be wrong, but you'll have to prove it to me.

Knowledge - Things that you know. (What)
Understanding - How things that you know relate to other things that you know. (How and Why)
Wisdom - Correctly applying understanding to produce desired results. (When and Where)


IQ tests attempt to measure understanding and wisdom. The best IQ tests supply most of the knowledge necessary to correctly complete the problems.
