Buying car insurance doesn't alter the chances of your car breaking
down on a long trip.  Insurance doesn't alter the chances of something
bad happening.  Driver training, seat belts, and spare tires are things
which can reduce risk.

A warranty is not a substitute for due dilegence.

How can you perform due dilegence on a carrier?  With a car, you
can open the trunk and check the spare tire.  What is the best way
to check a spare circuit?
