Terrorism? Don't be absurd.
We live in a very fearful society. People are happy to turn over basic freedoms for the illusion of security. Take for example airports. One terrorist attack and hundreds of millions of dollars are poured into massive government agencies. These agencies then go to extreme measures for your 'safety' in order to........ confiscate your toothpaste.

Benjamin Franklin said "Those who are willing to give up liberty for security deserve neither liberty OR security."

I stumbled upon an article regarding just this thing. And this article is supported by numbers. It lists out your one year and lifetime chances to die of any given occurrence, and finds those that fear terrorism are waaaaayyy over-reacting. I don't want to spoil to for ya, so go check it out.

Unless, of course, you are afraid that your computer will explode when you click on the link....
