Well, I know, but that's not my point. My point is we over emphasize things we're interested in.
Just like many of us think not carrying a gun is foolish and unprepared yet almost everyone who DOESN'T carry a gun will never need one.
Just like most of us think going into grizzly country unaware would be foolish yet most everyone who does it never gets hurt.
It is wise to prepare. It is wise to wear seatbelts. But going into grizzly country unprepared is hardly akin to suicide.
We only even really notice the danger because it's in our "sphere of interest" so to speak.
