If you're so concerned about your safety, then maybe you should just pull the covers up over your head and stay in bed for the rest of your life. In the end, you'll still die, but you'll never be able to say you've lived!
Risk is part of life, and if you're not willing to take some now and then, then what's the purpose of being here in the first place?
Thanks for the Superman comment, Roland. The fact remains that you can analyze things to death but if you don't get out from behind your desk and give it a try, you'll regret it for the rest of your short, insignificant life.
I fly small planes, ride motorcycles, drive race cars, and love every moment of it!
