2.0 WHAT IS DANGEROUS? HOW TO PREVENT CRIME, ACCIDENTS, INJURIES
What should you be afraid of according to crime statistics? A disgruntled employee who goes on a killing rampage at your place of work, shark infested waters, or a fiery violent plane crash? The answer is none of the above. In fact none of these is even close.
People can save a lot of money by protecting themselves against and avoiding the most common dangers, rather than fearing dangers which are rare. The best defense is good information that prepares you for likely threats.
For example, at the beach it is very unusual to be attacked by a shark. Drowning is the real danger, the one that people should protect themselves against.
Another serious danger at the beach or any open area is lightning. Lightning often kills at golf courses, for example. Also during lightning storms you should disconnect the phone connection to cordless phones, answering machines, and computer modems as well as the cable on cable TV. I personally know over 10 people who have had devices damaged by lightning.
