And yes, flying is safer than driving becasue there's a *lot* smaller

You believe this in spite of the fact that the fatal accident rate is
higher for personal flying than for driving? Doesn't that seem like
something you might want to think about a little more?

Sir, can you substantiate that amazing assertion?
Citations, websites, etc?
I've heard that lot's of places. Richard Collins mentioned a similar figure
last month in his column. Perhaps more pertitent, however, is that you're
making less conservative statements about flying safety without
substantiating them. You made a ridiculous statement about flying safety,
pulled right from your ass, without substantiating it and then dive on this
guy for quoting something actually based on fact without citing a reference.
At least he's trying to keep people like you safe. I'm not sure what you're
trying to do with your rose colored bull****. If you can't manage to fly an
airplane without deluding yourself about the safety record, you shouldn't
