Your Odds of Dying in a Plane Crash are Down to One in 45 Million:
Air travel has never been safer.
As of today, your odds of dying in a plane crash are down to one in 45 million. There were 23 plane crashes in the world in 2012 and 475 deaths . . . those are the lowest numbers since 1945 when there were a hell of a lot fewer planes.
No commercial flight has had a fatal crash in the U.S. in four years. That's more than 40 million commercial flights. And among the major carriers, there hasn't been a fatal crash since 260 people died in an American Airlines crash in November 2001.
Based on these numbers, you could fly every single day for 123,000 YEARS before the odds caught up with you.
Meanwhile, your odds of dying in a car accident in any given year are about one in 6,500. And over the course of your lifetime, your odds of dying in a car accident are about one in 83.
A Man is Arrested for Whipping It Out During a Job Interview:
Last week, 53-year-old Willie Merriweather of Aiken, South Carolina was being interviewed by a staffing agency . . . and he WHIPPED IT OUT in the middle of the interview.
The interviewer looked over, and saw that Willie had taken it out and had it in his hand. When she asked him what he was doing, he told her, quote, "It fell out."
So she kicked him out and called the cops.
They came and arrested Willie. An offical said, quote, "While he was [interviewing], his penis fell out of his pants. [He] claims that he must have forgotten to zip his pants."
He's facing charges of indecent exposure. AND the cops were able to link him to a previous report of a guy fondling himself at a public computer at a DIFFERENT employment agency . . . so he was hit with more charges for that.
