My only conclusion was that you can plan for most of life's "Oh, ****!"'s, and doing such planning will mitigate or eliminate the adverse outcomes...

Going for a drive? Put on your safety belt.

Parking at BMW? Pick and end spot, one farther in the back of the parking lot, and hug the curb.

Thunderstorm? Stay in the damn house and don't get near the plumbing or anything plugged in.

Swimming in the Gulf of Mexico? Don't do it at night, near dawn or dusk. (Sharks.)

Going to the 'hood? Do it before sundown. Drive the Cobalt instead of the BMW.

Don't climb from one balcony to another at a high-rise hotel... when drunk. Where I live, that's fairly common, and known as "spider-ing." As with a lot of things that start out with "Hold my beer. Watch this, y'all," spider-ing often ends badly.
