When it comes to cars, I wont be happy until human-driven cars are outlawed on public roads. Just so we are clear on where i stand on risk vs safety.
Interesting. You're still accepting risk, though. You've just defined your limit to be so small that I dare say it's bordering on insane; IMO anyway.
Ah...if only we could all just wake up and have an automated machine put our clothes on for us, transport us where we want to go and put us to bed at night. That'd be great. Then all we'd have to do is sit around and think while we stare blindly ahead.
Again, no thanks.
Life isn't worth living without experiences. Seriously, it's not. And experiences have risks. They just do. I risk tripping and stabbing myself with a scissor every time I walk across the floor with one in my hand. That's a risk I've learned to accept. I could put the scissors in a box and gently nudge it across the floor with my shuffling feet I suppose. But that's not an acceptable "safety vs. risk" trade off I'm willing to make. We all make these trade offs every day.
All we're talking about here is how far to take it. I can see now that you're willing to take this particular one far, far further than I would have ever imagined any sane person to consider. If enough others think similarly, then I may need to modify my definition of sane I suppose.
