Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
and car insurance which I never collect on because I'm a sane cautious driver.

That doesn't follow. All it takes is a landlord who doesn't maintain the drainage where you park your car, a heavy rainstorm with water reaching the engine, and (possibly - I only thought of this possibility much later) collaboration between a garage owner and insurance adjuster, and you end up collecting more from auto insurance companies than you've paid in (in my case, than I've paid all my life).

Of course, this was in NY. Maybe such things don't happen in CA.
