Got it. as noted not a car guy. If the goal is to make up fictitious scenarios then there is no argument. The stereotyping of anything isn't ideal. You can show me the worst and I can show you the best.

Like everything, surroundings and how "creatures" are raised ultimately determine how they end up. Obviously, we could take this debate away from dog breeds and put it onto people but why.

Obviously, people > dogs but like people, some dogs are at the point of no return and should be handled as such.

Some can be reformed and some were raised to know and do the right thing.

This is a concept known as an analogy, which uses an often hypothetical or manufactured situation to illustrate something about an actual one. That’s the whole point of an analogy. To take someone outside if the actual where their biases may prevent understanding.

I understand.
Its like
humans raised in households with zero love, zero guardrails, abused, etc probably grow up with a similar pattern

Humans raised with love, discipline and teachings most likely grow up in a similar pattern.

in both cases, there can be loose chips in the brain that cause reverse outcomes.

Just like pits.

This would hold true if this was actually the result. I was huge skeptic based on what I had read and my built in desires and biases, but the data is pretty irrefutable. It's not just poorly raised or trained. No other breed of dog has the frequency and devastating efficacy of attacks that pits do.

The real world versions of the Ferrari Guillotino were sadly more dowdy. Corvair and the Pinto pre gas tank bladders. Corvair's rear air cooled engine plus swing rear axle would cause the rear wheels to camber all the way into the wheel well after rolling over a low dip and the tires would clip the undercarriage thus causing a fishtail. The manufacturer's manual had to advise 15 pounds of pressure for the rears and 30 for the fronts or some similar wide disparity, but few did it. The Corvair was much more bleeped up than the reffing in Game 6, Ralph.

Early Pinto models scrimped on safety and had crappy gas tanks that were easily punctured in low speed rear collisions and often caught fire. In Top Secret, a vehicle barely touches a Pinto's bumper to the sound of crystal glasses pinging and then the Pinto explodes. Good gag, tho dated. Doors would also be crammed shut from impact. I knew someone who survived severe burns in a Pinto fire, tho he had a skin tone as deep as Manute Bol's so the swirling on his arms didn't show until you were close up to him. Both of his forearms were completely swirled and his torso probably had extensive burns as well, tho I didn't wanna bring up what was probably the worst day of his life by asking him, but I did know the overall gist of the story from others. By the time Ford put rubber liners inside the tanks, making them fully puncture proof, the rep was already kaput. It could've been the cheapest and safest car of its size ever made to that point, but Ford got greedy on em.

To tie this back into dangerous dogs, don't take your diabetic son in your Pinto low on fuel anywhere that a rabid St. Bernard might be present.
