Most computer-based auto racing simulations reduce deadly collisions and rollovers to child's play. I find this highly objectionable, because it may encourage careless driving. I would rather see a gaming console which delivered an electic shock to the user each time he caused a crash. If that is a bit severe, then perhaps we could at least have games in which a crash would eliminate one's chance of winning a given round, and perhaps cost the crasher some points.
As for Nigeria, I have no idea whether The Prophet would have approved of the Miss World Contest, but he certainly would have disapproved of the past week's carnage there!
