I hate the mainstream news these days. Not only is it all about the worst possible stuff that happens each day, but it's all about fearmongering. Take this little article headline from CNN:

"Usually harmless turbulence can be dangerous, deadly"

Oooh, that sounds scary, and I hate to fly, so let's read the article:

"Since 1980, three people have been killed in turbulence-related accidents"
"There have been 234 turbulence-related accidents since 1980, and 114 passengers were seriously injured in those accidents"

I'm not even going to bother to give you the statistics on those numbers, but seriously, are you absolutely kidding me with that headline?
