I understand the OP's sentiment and I really do believe that all the 'can't do this, can't do that' business needs to calm down. In my opinion, if we
choose to do something dangerous or go somewhere that might be dangerous, then we do so at our own risk.
We spend so much time and money telling people that they shouldn't eat too much fat, shouldn't smoke, shouldn't drive without a seatbelt, shouldn't
climb ladders without someone holding on to the bottom, must wear goggles when using certain tools, must wear a helmet, can't work at height without a
harness, mustn't touch that...burny (ok protecting kids that don't know any better is allowed) etc. that it has become an obsession.
If we were allowed to just get on with it, the stupid ones would end up dead and the sensible ones would stay safe! Darwin awards springs to mind. It
should be survival of the fittest, natural selection and all that. Then we would end up wit a slightly smaller population where the majority know how
to get through life without becoming obese, decapitated or paraplegic due to their own idiocy. So much tax wasted on fixing stupid people.
