Flying over water Thu, Jun 19, 2008
I have a fear of flying over bodies of water because if the plane crashed, I would need to find something to float on so I could paddle back to shore.  But after thinking about it for two seconds, I realized that a plane has about an equal chance of surviving a crash on water as on land, i.e. the plane would disintegrate on impact.  And despite what TV shows like Lost have taught us about plane crashes, most of them end in the death of everyone on board. 

So that should make me feel better about flying over bodies of water.  Yeah. #travel
