Useless panic. Waste of time and energy worrying about it or trying to protect against it - it will happen if it happens - so live your life

What If : An All American Dad acting in a public safety demonstration because he’s doing his bit, but doing it wrong because he’s a bit of an idiot, he’s serious about it though. He’s somewhere public in the 50s and there’s a narrator talking to him. The guy ends up wheeling off in a wheelchair from all the damage our safety technology has done to him
