As I prepare to endure the nightmare that is modern commercial aviation, observe the odds that all this inconvenience only becomes worse:

...the odds of being on given departure which is the subject of a terrorist incident have been 1 in 10,408,947 over the past decade. By contrast, the odds of being struck by lightning in a given year are about 1 in 500,000. This means that you could board 20 flights per year and still be less likely to be the subject of an attempted terrorist attack than to be struck by lightning.

So for those odds, we add just a bit more misery to our lives.

But some people crapped their pants...while one guy set his balls afire.
