Not really. Overall health is higher, standards of living are better, Median life expectancy is higher then ever, Education is better.

What it is, is that we are more connected then ever too. So all that horrific stuff that's happening, you know about it immediately. Instead of news from your local area only, everywhere gets an equal say.

Interesting. Crime statistics and poverty rates (US and worldwide) don't jive with that. How would you quantify?

Accident reconstruction is a great help when you want to avoid repeating a mistake in the future.

Yep. By painting large arrows and other bullshit all along the road. I've heard tales that these "markers" are quite slick.

I too would like to see photos of my last accident instead of just the end result (posted in face plant if any cares to look) just to know how I and the bike ended up where we did,

Just the Meth problem in this country makes it much worse, not including other areas of crime and horror. Statistics? HA! But this is the Killboy fail fest.

I suspect that deep down inside rabid inmates are sadomasochists. And love it.
