Safety fast, Bill

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.- Helen Keller

Heh, I never noticed that before!

I guess it's just because Jeep is so awesome that it pulls all their business towards Jeep. However, since we're all determined to 1) Keep our Jeeps running as long as physically possible so we can 2) Sink as many cool and stupidly expensive parts into them as possible.
