Well, both experience and circumstances matter.  In Vietnam, I would have been more concerned with lights in the sky than in Canada.
Canada geese don't have running lights? ;)

Joke's not original with me. My friend in Yellow Knife ("in" being three hours by boat) said that Canada geese need running lights like any other aircraft.

The joke does get more complicated when I mention that running lights were a no-no for the fast-movers that routinely overflew us to get their fixes for a run.

Geese do need stars and sunlight to migrate.  And some landmarks.  But not "running lights" which are lights attached to moving bodies.

Instead of running lights they avoid collisions by honking.

Honking didn't work for that goose. Collision resulted.

But you can have collisions with running lights too.  Nothing is perfect.

Ships have lights too, so you know on which side to pass them.

No, Trump says there is NO Collission!  And the goose only brought coffee for a short time,  BTW, what goose.  There never was a goose.

Thea had one hell of a collision without running lights, so I guess you're right.

Or you were just trying to claim that I claimed running lights were perfect.

Well, we can certainly discuss the run-in with Thea.  What is your view of it?
