NO! WE NEED GOVERNMENT EVERYWHERE! They are efficient and know how to protect us!



Well, the dumbass ATVers (not against ATVs or the ability to ride them on public land) would not pay attention to their surroundings and a lot of people would go shooting in the same area (the gun owners were there long before the ATVers. Long before).



Now, no one was ever shot, but since the ATVers for the most part were RUBs and were afraid of guns, they *****ed and moaned about how dangerous it was until they banned shooting in a lot of areas.



Oddly enough there were at least a half a dozen instances when an ATVer would try to make it across the road to the other side of the national forest and would get nailed by a car.



For some reason they didn't ban the cars.

Rent the movie "Idiocracy." It will explain everything.



Come to think of it, I think kpaul's dead-horse news items are MO's equivalent of the hit TV show of the future, "Ow, My Balls!"

Hey Fenton, exactly how many computers do you have logged onto MO at one time, anyway?

Default A different conclusion

Seruzawa, when I read your first paragraph I conclude that Darwin is hard at work and the stupid rich a**hole gene will soon be flushed out of the pool. Unless, of course, we pass a bunchaÂ’ laws that allow them to be stupid and take out the rest of us without injury to themselves (airbags and crumple zones come to mind).



It's "all over" only if they live long enough to reproduce. Put 'em all in Corvairs, I say, and let them bear the consequences of being stupid!

I've got an old 4 wheeler for hauling stuff around my cabin amd you see them used a lot by ranchers, etc. But the idea of using one for fun is ridiculous. Off road motorcycles are superior in almost every way to 4 wheelers IMHO. 4 wheelers are farking heavy and if you roll one they roll over you. Emergency rooms are full of these clowns on weekends who seriously injure themselves.



So many idiots think that 4 wheelers are safer than two wheelers. That's another example of one of those "everybody knows" facts that are completely false.

I'd agree with you, but they seem to reproduce faster than they can kill themselves off. The numbers of these people have skyrocketed in the last few years driving us out of some of our favorite getaway areas.



Maybe I'm just experiencing a random cluster effect locally. I sure hope so.

Well, they are already on ATVS without helmets and protective gear. Just tell them to start jumping sand dunes. It will take care of several generations all at once.



Now if we could only start building Starbucks on active minefields we would really make some progress.
