    Yup, when I was a kid, I put large sticks of butter on my feet and skated around on Paul Bunyan's giant skillet to cook his flapjacks. Now, they say that cooking flapjacks in a giant skillet is dangerious......I disagree.

    It seems like the more we find scapegoats for small issues and the more we "safe-guard"...well, pretty much everything, the more screwed up people get. Look how many more nutjobs there seem to be today than in the past!

    I have a 66 Mustang which I have owned for years (not running right now if anyone wants to help rebuild it) that did not come with and has never had seat belts. I got pulled over years ago by a LEO who told me I was going to have to install some or every time he saw me he would write me a ticket for not wearing a seat belt. I tried to explain that it never had them and I didn't have to. He didn't seem to care.

    How did we survive riding in the back of pick ups, no seat belts, baby carriages that were not recalled by the FTC for being unsafe, gasoline with lead in it, the list goes on and on.

    That I'm still breathing today is proof the experts are wrong on all these dangers to kids.

    Did you point out that vehicles that don't have current "safety requirements" installed as original equipment don't need them?

    Let's see.....when we had all of those things, America was very strong and the envy of the world. But in the name of progress, we got rid of them. Now we're told on a daily basis how bad things are and that America has no future. Hmmmm....you don't think there's a correlation there.....do you?

    Where I grew up if it wasn’t fried in lard it wasn’t fit to eat. We also had fresh squeezed milk straight from the barn to the house and the eggs, the only thing done to them was candling, it there was a blood spot they went back under the brood hen to be hatched. If I was out in the garden it was not uncommon to pull a tomato off the vine and eat it right there and I even carried a small saltshaker for just that. Oh and water, we drew it from the well no chlorine or fluoride. Most of what we ate or drank would send the radicals at Science in the Public Interest and the CDC into convulsions today.

    Ride a two-wheeled vehicle with no seat belt (and no helmet in my state), and you're cool. Drive a four-wheeled vehicle without a seat belt and get a ticket.

    Why do we keep letting these morons do this stuff to us?!

    Sounds like we may have had similar childhoods. I grew up on a 237 acre farm in Central Indiana. I could go months at a time and not eat anything that didn't come from that farm. No regulations, no FDA, no media watchdog groups.....

    I'm still here.

    Well 40Bob, the truth is they didn't all survive. Years ago, stupid people quickly and efficiently culled themselves from the herd. Then along came the do-gooder liberals with their consumer protection laws, product labels, seat belt and helmet laws, and all that other stuff designed for the sole purpose of saving stupid people from themselves. This allowed stupid people to live long lives and have stupid children.

    And that folks is why there are so many stupid people in this country.

    I think they'll finally discover after a long time that what keeps people healthy and eradicates most disease is grease.

    Back when I was a MAC Aircrew member if one got a “grease low light” and did not get a burger within four hours he would go into convulsions.
