Nomex and a Helmet Would Have Been Better

Without further comment:

Maybe the Prophet Didn't Anticipate Internal Combustion?

Check the gratuitous PC gloss at the end of the story comparing her to a 1920s dancer:

"Her death is being likened to that of American dancer Isadora Duncan, acknowledged as being the creator of modern dance, and who was famous for the flowing silk carves she liked to wear.
But while riding in an open-top car in Nice in 1927, her scarf became entangled in one of the vehicle's spoked wheels and she was strangled."

Just who is "likening" the woman to this dancer? As if people are walking around Australia saying, "Gosh! Just like the death of wonderful modern progressive feminist free-spirit dancer Isadora Duncan 83 years ago! My, that Burka is a doubleplusgood progressive statement of Muslim womanhood!"

But RAS! The prophet unequivocally stated that women were NOT supposed to drive cars! Had she followed that precise guidance in the Koran, she'd still be alive today! /sarc
