Don made a very interesting point, which was (correct me if I'm wrong) some
regulations need to be followed exactly, such as those concerning safety, and
other regulations should only be considered as "suggestions" in order to
get the job done.
This approach is honored among old-timers and teenagers alike, however it
requires enough intelligence to tell when a regulation should obeyed or
ignored. When I was a teenager, I was a lot smarter than I am now, and was
able to tell exactly which rules needed to obeyed and which to ignore,
but now that I am getting on in years I'm not so sure about things.
It seems like now I try to follow them all, and leave the decisions about
which rules to break to teenagers, old-timers, and the U.S. government.
I worry about the example that I'm setting - I feel guilty that I'm teaching
kids to work within the system instead of using their brains, however
I'm confident that there are plenty of other examples out there for them to
