I would never ever say that of them. Especially after putting up with you all those years.

AND THAT'S JUST IN THE U.S.A.

Just because they weren't front page news doesn't diminish their deaths or the pain and suffering of their family and friends. And yet somehow, you still get in a car almost every day.

ARE YOU SURE YOU WON'T BE ONE OF TOMORROW'S 93? How can you possibly risk getting in a car?

What about the people who died of old age or disease? Perhaps you should site those as reasons to not give a **** when a plane crashes as well?

A few people actually survived, one person tells his story how he got out of the wreckage and ran to safety. An interesting read.

I always thought that only the common people needed to be scared of airplane crashes but after this and the Polish president, now I'm not so sure. Flying is just dangerous. Crashes happen and it doesn't matter who you are or how much money you have, flying is an uncertainty.

Leaving your house every day is an uncertainty. Anything can happen, at any time.

I guess that's why he wasn't scared to get on a plane in an area known to be perilous for flying, even after he survived another airplane crash that killed his wife however.

I'm allowed to talk about any current incidents. This was a recent accident so I'm not violating any agreements by discussing it. Thanks for asking though.

Let's look up how many car crashed today and how many died. I bet there's a lot more car crashes than plane crashes
