I didn't say that the entire interstate system in SD had a 75mph posted
speed limit. Just that some parts did. Try I90 west of Mitchell. I also
suppose they could have changed the speed limit since I was last there.
The speed limits also slow down near and though cities, so it depends on
where you got the ticket.

Of course not. But it isn't because they don't care about the human, as
you originally stated. Its just the opposite; its because they do care
about the human.

You are welcome.  I think we agree on the facts, but not the principles
behind the facts.

There is indeed a piece of paper, and ARIN keeps it in a book.  
Registrations were originally by paper and mail.  I suppose you
young'uns don't know what those are. We also didn't have cell phones
back that, and numeric pagers were "cool", unless you had to carry one
for work.

And I, for one, appreciate that.

Certainly, any agreement can be changed with the consent of both
parties.  However, ARIN doesn't have to consent not to be the registrar
anymore.  That can be dictated by DoC/IANA.  I think perhaps it might be
a good idea to change registrar's again, just so that people don't
forget that its a possibility.
