Unanswerable questions

Why does it take 20 minutes to put Aiden down for a nap, but an hour and a half to put him down at night?

Which is worse, ethically speaking: causing an accident due to intoxication, or causing an accident due to obliviousness?

I was raised to believe in 'risk management'... by teaching me to manage the risks I tok in life, they were also planting a subtler message- even an /accident/ can be affected by your choices. You can sometimes avoid them, and you can certainly lessen (or enlarge!) your chances of how bad the outcome is.

My outcome in a traffic accident are likely to be better than some because I wear a seat belt, for example, and drive defensively. I do not drink and drive, and I obey both traffic laws and the basics of common sense... that STILL won't /prevent/ an accident! :P Those happen despite all precautions. I can't control how someone ELSE drives!

I think personal responsibility is awesome, because it puts you back into control again.
