The Slice

Maybe we're paranoid about safety now

But I have to tell you, seeing this little girl riding like that gave me a chill.

Yes, I know many of us survived countless risks just like this. That does not make it a good idea. There's this thing called learning.

I suspect the agency that came up with this 1960s ad for Honda knew exactly what it was doing.

"How can we send the signal that riding motorcycles is safe?"

"I know! Let's show a child riding one."

"Should the kid be wearing a helmet?"

"Definitely not! That would just remind consumers of traumatic head injury."
