Comment How big a percentage would be negatively affected? (Score 5, Insightful) 242

One might argue that many drivers on the roads today already aren't particularly proficient at controlling their vehicles. While it might be that some persons skills would grow worse with disuse, I think there are a goodly number of individuals out there who would be safer 'drivers' if they weren't in direct control over their cars themselves. And I don't mean just those who have poor eyesight or slow reflexes.

Still being made and used by historical buffs (I've talked with a guy who was actively making stone tools to show how it was done), and a pair of anthropologists go around demonstrating how stone knives could be very good at taking apart animals that hunters had brought down. All that stuff is still being made and used, if only to show how it was made and used.

Not to mention, some of my better photos have been ones that I hadn't meant to take, or turned out wrong on first look, but a bit of cropping and playing turned it into something I really liked. The only time I actually delete a photo is if it's completely and totally worthless (like a completely blurry picture of my foot, or something, from when I'm walking across a field.)
