Incorrect, in modern F1, it's virtually unheard of for the monocoque (the footwell, plus the rest of the area the driver sits in) to be compromise in any way. This includes head on into the barriers at 200mph type crashes. At the British grand prix last week, Kimi Raikkonen walked (with a sore ankle) out of a 47g impact. The monocoque was perfectly in tact.

If you don't want to get left behind the fads, don't choose an area that's all about fads.

Any kernel developer will currently be using basically the same toolset as they used in 1980.
Any driver developer will currently be using basically the same toolset as they used in 1980.
Any game developer will currently be using basically the same toolset as they used in 2000.

Not everyone jumps on a new shiny framework every 2 years because they're struggling to overcome the limitations of a crappily designed language like javascript. If you don't want to jump from fad to fad... just don't be a web dev.

Right, but I've even seen what you're suggesting happen. This is when this "kindness" is at its most frustrating.

You sit and wait for a gap to get out of a junction. You see a gap, and you get yourself ready to slot into it. Then the jerk in front of the gap decides to be "kind" and slows down to try and let you out. He inevitably miscalculates, and ends up not letting you out, and also closing the gap behind him.
