As much as you want to and try to be situationally aware 100% of the time, sometimes that 0.5% of the time you're not watching your mirrors are when you get hit, and all it takes is one hit to completely change your life.
Anyone who argues with you over that point is an idiot.

I decided it just wasn't worth it in southern california and took up flying instead since it was always a childhood dream.
I know what really happened. Obama took your bike.
