(Not) Learning from Accidents.

In Philosophy, Short Thoughts

A few days ago I had a minor accident on my motorbike. It could have ended badly, but, fortunately, it didn’t.

I overtook a fellow motorcyclist who happened to be speaking on a mobile phone stuck between his ear and helmet, and as he reached for the phone he swerved to the left smashing into me.

I managed to stay on my feet, but he hit the tarmac – relatively unharmed, but somewhat shaken.

However, the incredible thing is that he picked himself up and started driving again, and then continue his chat on his phone.

And we say humans are rational beings.
