I remember a while back, a wealthy Oriental gentlemen bought a brand new 355 Spider for his son's high-school graduation. The sales people at the dealership were betting on how long the poor car would last.
Sure enough, within 2 weeks the car was totaled by the boy. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt.
Sometimes I wish they would regulate cars like flying airplanes. You spend thousands of dollars and many hours of training just to fly a puddle jumper in perfect weather. Want to fly in weather? Need an instrument rating. Want to fly at night? Need to be current. What to fly a high-performance aircraft? Another rating. Want to fly jets? You need to be seriously rich and able to accumulate hours that would take most pilots several years to meet. And there are plenty more qualifications, as well as the required recurrency and medical.
