    But you know that kind of applies to everything doesn't? I mean stupidity will have an impact on your daily life in everything, regardless of how simple, easy, or smart it is to do if you really try hard enough to be that much of a damn moron.
    Yeah sure, usually speaking the government doesn't act on you until you're at least suspected of breaking some sort of law. Thanks for revealing to me something that everyone on the planet except maybe babies and toddlers was already aware of.

    The statistical experts at Freakonomics say there are strong indications that while seat belts save lives, car seat laws may make accidents more dangerous.

    They covered it in their second book, and they have several follow-ups on their site.

    Ahh! The treachery of reality, when good intentions hit it like a wall.

    Can you show that I intended to affect other people? No? I didn't think so.

    a) Yes. They are nessisary to protect the public for their own good.
    b) No. I'm a consenting adult and shouldn't have to wear one if I don't want to.

    Do momentum and kinetic energy apply to consenting adults?

    You mean affect other people negatively. But of course very many things we do affect other people negatively and we do them and are allowed to do them all the time.

    That is because the maxim of the law is that there can be no crime without a criminal intent; that is, without the intent to invade the person or property of another. No one can prove intent here.
