    I Wont Risk Some Else's Life

    I know too many people who have driven while intoxicated. Most of them haven't harmed or killed anyone. Most of them. I know too many people who have been hit by drunk drivers. Some of them didn't die. Some of them don't wish they had. I am not worried about what it would do...

    Perspective.

    on the one hand: i could drive intoxicated, possibly killing or maiming another person and/or myself, and consequently live the rest of my life in guilt, pain, and despair.... OR on the other hand: pay $10 for a cab. gotta go with option B. every time. it's just not worth it.

    I love long drives but here in the UK it's miserable with the poor condition of the roads. Don't want to take my lovely little car out ... But I do and take a chance on damage.

    People despise everyone who succeeds and hate the ones who surpass them. Get used to scorn if you want peace and hate if you agree to fight.
