    Another reason for me never to get on a plane.

    Doh! Do you use roads? Far more dangerous than flying as is remaining in the house! lol

    If I crash in a car there's a good chance I'll be ok, if I crash in a plane, well, I'm basically toast.

    Indeed. Just because flying is statistically less likely to result in death than, say, travel by car does not mean that it is actually any safer, since your chances of survival given that an accident does occur are close to nil.

    Well done at missing the point entirely, you win one internet!

    Statistical interpretation fail. You win one internet too!

    That's terrible. :(

    Let's have a war about travel safety.

    I look at it like this. In a car, I'm driving, so, my decisions, reflexes, attention, etc. matter to some extent in determining whether I get in a fatal accident. In a plane, I have no control over the situation and I don't like that.

    Anyway, that is a tragic event that happened. I always say that take off and landing seem to be the worst scenarios for tragic accidents like that. It's a damn shame.

    Another missed point. Statistically speaking it is far, far safer to fly than it will ever be to remain:

    1. In the house
    2. At work
    3. In a car
    etc, etc, etc....................................

    Keep your Internet, you smug ****. You can reference Google as much as you want, my point is still valid.

    Yeah, I'm the troll. You're the one acting like a total belled picking holes in everything people say. You must have so many friends if you do that IRL too.

    Look, if you don't fly because your afraid, that's fine. I'm not afraid and so I do.

    It has nothing to do with being afraid, I just don't see the point in putting myself in unnecessary danger, you don't need to fly, it's a luxury.
