Rubbish. Just because you've no legs or arms doesn't mean you're dead. Look at
Christopher Reeve. His horse crashed, and he's still here.

Not if you weld one to each side. In fact, that'd make it stabler, albeit
slower. Unless there were SRBs attached to the carts.
BTW: am I the only one who thinks this analogy has been stretched to crashing
point? I prefer to think of lynx as a video tape, and Mozilla as a DVD. Loads of
extra features, but you don't have to watch them if you don't have to. The mail
is a director's commentary, the obligatory AIM (don't want it? tough) is the
trailer for the film you've just seen, and the news reader is the deleted
Jesus, I'm bored. But I'll be going home in an hour.
