    Over 40,000 died in the Vietnam War (from beginning to end).
    Over 40,000 die on American highways every year.

    I have seen many protests against the war in Vietnam,
    I have heard of many young Americans fleeing to Canada to avoid the draft.

    I have never seen, or heard of, a march to get people off the highways,
    I have often seen and heard of young Americans drinking and getting behind the wheel.

    If you are reading this, you obviously had a safe holiday season. I hope this next year is as fortunate for you.

    As usual you guessed wrong. Since you brought up the subject there were more people killed by drunk drivers last year than in Iraq since the invasion first began.

    While drunk and otherwise impaired drivers are a concern there are many factors not limited to road conditions, weather, unsafe vehicles, speed, unskilled drivers, old/young drivers, and in or out of vehicle distractions.

    uhhh...where's the correlation?

    You can add, there were LESS people kill in APPOLO moon landings than I-crack, so that makes getting a ride on a giant rocket in the 1960's MORE SAFE than a 6-month tour (extended to 12) in I-crack. right?
    ...carry the 2, divide by csc^(phi)...

    "Things"? What "things"? I don't remember measuring any"thing" by the length of a football field. It never occurred to me. How is it that it occurred to you?

    If time (since the big bang) was a line as long as a football field, man's existence could be represented by the width of a thread laid across that line.

    But time is not a line , it is a unit of measure concocted by man. And it has changed over the course of written history

    Funny. I always thought that days, weeks, months, hours, minutes were measurements of time and not the other way around.
