"Dang smart... Until you die!"

Please inform your friend that we're all going to die.

Besides, a Smart Car is safer than a motorcycle, bicycle.... or skydiving. What I mean to say is that it is relatively safe to drive a Smart Car. They are also fun to drive and easy on the pocketbook.

I read in the Statesman recently that a cop in Leander gave a 10 year old kid a ticket for sticking his head out the window of his Mom's car while she drove down the road.

Most of those who left comments below the article generally felt that the Mom should have been punished for putting her child at such risk. Maybe she should have just left him at home since driving is so inherently dangerous. Now that's parenting that the hive mind can only admire.

But no, my comment to the finger pointers was that sticking your head out of a car window while driving is actually awesome, that they and their children should try it sometime. I promised not to report them to the proper authorities if I saw them doing it.

Before the nanny state some people, mostly teenagers, would often ride around in the bed of pickup trucks. Most of them survived.
