Something my 9th grade Civics teacher tried to drill into our heads. He'd tell us we were "driving 2 ton weapons" or something to that affect. And remind us how we were within inches of head on collisions all the time.

I remember, we all really hated this guy at the time, but the older I get, the more I realize he was trying to warn us of more than a few dangers that were ahead of us.
