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?

Pondering a bit more, often the intoxicated driver is ignoring many of the same rules that the oblivious one is.

The second decision -- much of the time when you make the first decision, you're doing it knowing that that second decision is going to have to be made. It does happen that someone will have several drinks at home and then discover some lack that requires a trip to the grocery store despite the intoxication, but that's significantly less common.
