Life is dangerous, things are dangerous, just the way it is.
Driving Northbound in the southbound Lanes doing 70 miles an hour on a four-lane divided highway or an interstate will result in tragedy, serious injury or death most likely. You're not supposed to be doing it but it is repeatedly done all over the USA and the world for various reasons. Same as driving eastbound in the westbound lanes. That alone, with the countless numbers that are killed should ban the automobile, no?
My God, cell phones, tablets and laptops have caused so much death on the highways all over the world, the most that is done if the driver gets caught, is a ticket for driving, that's called distracted driving. And if it results in serious injury he may get a slightly more serious charge . But again, the devices that caused all of those hundreds of thousands of people to die every year are not banned! So I'm f****** confused.
Working on electricity in your home or business without being an electrician and fully being aware of the dangers, is extremely dangerous that winds up killing a countless amount of people every year, but we do not outlaw everything that takes electricity.
Working with chemicals without being knowledgeable and well-trained and experienced results in tragedy, injury and death to countless people every year, but we do not ban or outlaw any chemical that will result in death.
Working with industrial equipment, heavy equipment, specialized equipment is also dangerous and you must be trained and have experience with that particular type of equipment you are working with, but those types of equipment also cause serious injury and death to countless people all over the world every year! But we do not outlaw or ban that equipment. And these injuries and deaths of countless numbers happen to both young, middle-aged and older people as well as innocent bystanders are killed. But we do not close the industries down that the equipment is used in or the communities are not closed where that equipment operates even if we know others out there will repeat certain events with the same catastrophic outcome using that equipment by unskilled workers, etc.
Oh yeah and the last one, without naming hundreds more, is guns. Guns kill, why do we still have guns in circulation and guns being sold? I'm f****** confused, shouldn't guns be banned?
An estimated 88,000 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. The first is tobacco, and the second is poor diet and physical inactivity. So shouldn't we ban alcohol because millions of people died around the world from that every year and shouldn't we ban tobacco for the same reason and third shouldn't we ban being lazy and fat?
The list can go on and on and on and on.
