    No, but I know that accidents happen, and by taking my vehicle out of my garage I am exposing myself to these risks. Welcome to earth.

Yep, tore his penis off---which apparently is what these chimps may do to other males when angry.

    I am not an animal psychologist, but what I believe is that chimpanzees in captivity are basically driven to being psychotic. If you've ever watched chimpanzees in a cage at the zoo you can see the anger and hate in their eyes. Much different from the look a lion has in it's eyes when it looks at you like you are lunch. A chimpanzee has that Charles Manson look in it's eyes that tells me that all it thinks about is ripping your face off because it can. A primate version of Hannibal Lechter.
    I dont think we can assign human emotions to animals (though at times it certainly seems that way), but chimps are known to murder, rape, and even take hallucinogenic mushrooms in the wild. And with no clear reason for any of them.

    What about if they know that drunk driving is dangerous to the general public. As such, they pass a law against it. Then they in effect, say that a particular person can drive at say .12, whereas everybody else needs to stay under .08? And then, they choose to ignore complaints that person "X" often seen weaving around town in her car. The woman then drives at .12 and kills somebody?

    Believe me, I am not a sue happy person, and I realize that this is academic due to sovereign immunity, but what the state did is pretty negligent.

    If a bridge was structurally weak and the state knew about it but did not repair it or close it to traffic, then the state is likely to be held responsible for the deaths and injuries that result (unless they are completely immune), even if most drivers knew that the state's bridges were poorly maintained. If the transportation department could argue that there were so many brdiges in need of inspection or immediate repair due to prior neglect that they could not obtain the resources to fix them or close them all promptly, then they might prevail in court.
    Let's get some apples, oh wait we're talking oranges here. MY BAD.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Bollocks you drive your car over bridge's, roads etc because you know its safe to do so.
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).

    Bollocks you accept inherent risk when you get into your car. This is a fact of life, period.

    Seriously, plaintiff attorneys love people like you. What if this had been a pit viper attack? Would you feel the same way?
    That is what she knew. She acted on her knowledge.

    The state did not.

    So who is negligent?

    So then why bother having any regulating agencies at all? I'd be more than happy to save my $$ if they serve no purpose and have no accountability.

    I'm all for that. I dont have to worry a bit when I drive across bridges or drink my tap water.
