    Which is another way of what I said (a few times).




    The selection criteria is over-broad (often) or mismatched.

    That's why the "no one uses helmets in the Netherlands, so no one anywhere...

    There are two different/opposing perspectives. Both are correct.

    Insurance is focused on populations. Individuals are focused on themselves.

    The population perspective doesn't really apply very...

    Yes, but the risk analysis is for a population (for an imaginary "individual" that represents the population).

    The risk for an actual individual is going to be different. That's why insurance...

    Some sort of statistic would likely be more reliable than anecdotes based on imperfect memories.

    People should be wary about being nostalgic for the "good old days".

    And you have no idea whether the driver was sufficiently careful.

    This significant lack of information undermines your seeming certainty that the cyclist could have avoided the collision.

    People drove too close years ago too. Other than the cell-phone/texting issue, is there any indication that drivers now are worse?

    That's utterly wrong no matter how many times you write it.

    Not odd.

    The cigarette lighter is something they are familiar with and looking for. The Trangia burner doesn't look like anything other than a small can. The interest in the lighter is the...

    He's renting a bike. The place he's renting from should have a pedal wrench.

    We are talking about bicycle multitools. They don't typically have blades (I'd avoid bringing blades in carry on).

    You are allowed to bring tools like screwdrives if they are under a particular...

    I carried all of these, except the pedals, in my carry-on last December both ways on a trip to California with no problems. My impression is that they were more lax than in prior years.

    They aren't on the map because they have names (lots of paths have names and are not included).

    Still sounds to me like more effort than it's worth. I suspect that most people will feel the same way.

    Given the tiny size of the screen, increasing the resolution significantly would add more detail that would be too hard to see.

    This depends on the maps being used on the device. The Garmins allow you to load other maps. The issue, then, is finding the maps that have the trails you are interested in. Maps based on...
