Same.  Also add being buried alive.

buried alive totally wigs me out

i've spent a lot of time under water

diving for me is therapeutic 

you hear your breath slow and steady (calming effect for me)

and if you're doing it right, you achieve perfect buoyancy 

akin to being an astronaut weightlessly drifting in space...

critters and scenery are pretty neat too

Also a water baby and drowning is also a terror death of mine as well.  Came near once.  Went out alone on a big day in SoCal off my local beach in Corona del Mar, alone and tried to ride a spot that only broke when it got over a certain height, 10 to 15 feet, that no one to my knowledge had ever tried before.  First wave, it was so big and fast that the board started chattering.  My ankles were not strong enough.  Wipe out and lost my board.  No leashes in those days.  It went all the way in and I was about 200 yards or so from the beach.  I was 15 and in the best shape of my life but did not think that I was going to be able to make it back in.  The war was going on then and Marine choppers were everywhere all the time.  Two or three went by and every time one went by I tried to wave at them and get their attention.  Didn't happen.  I started to imagine that I was not going to make it in before I ran out of energy.  It took me what seemed like an hour just to get to the shore break which was about 6 to 10 feet high breaking on some pretty jagged rocks.  Finally took another hour to time the break just right and make it on to the beach slightly scratched up.  Retrieved my board and began one of the longest and hardest walks home ever.  One of the stupidest things I ever did.

The thought of drowning scared the bejeezus out of me and in my mind is one of the most violent ways to die.  Last time I ever went out alone in anything over shoulder high surf or anytime really after that.  The buddy system or not at all.

The “death index” is the number of times more likely you are to die. So, for example, the data in the chart below shows that a person traveling in the U.S. by intercity rail is 20 times as likely to die from that mode of transportation while traveling the same approximate distance as compared to a person flying on a scheduled passenger flight (though the rates for each are low).

Transportation modeDeath index
Airlines1
Intercity rail (Amtrak)20.0
Scheduled charter flights34.3
Mass transit (rail and bus)49.8
Non-scheduled charter flights59.5
Non-scheduled helicopter flights63.0
General aviation (like private planes)271.7
Driving or riding in a car/SUV453.6
Chart data compiled and analyzed from NTSB, U.S. DOT via Diio Mi, NHTSA.



 Interesting!  Thanks for sharing rgio.   Good article.

  Certainly confirms my bias/impression that getting into an automobile is one of the most dangerous things that most of us do on a regular basis.

I would be curious to compare these numbers to bicycle commuting fatalities.    Reckon that one can improve things by obeying road rules, respecting automobile drivers and staying highly visible.



 

The comments on that article are good. 

One points out that deaths-per-hour are probably not going to throw off the same ratios, since planes eat up a lot more miles per hour than any of those other options. (charter flights/private planes go fast, but not as fast as "airlines" averages)

I used to fly in helicopters a lot in a former life. IMO the pilot skill and the quality of the company have a huge effect on safety. The mostly routine flying probably doesn't do a lot for maintaining skills for the commuter service, even as the pilot racks up a lot of hours. But they probably put in their dues in gnarly situations like servicing offshore rigs so who knows?

Interesting that Amtrak is higher than airlines. Most of the deaths are probably suicide #badjoke

I am seeing from all sides people taking Kobe's death and moreso the medias and public's response to the news and applying their own agendas.   Look, of course he is going to get more media coverage than the other people on board.  Everyone knows who Kobe is so it is the death of someone you know and have seen many times, maybe he has even given you some entertainment or even if you don't follow sports because he spoke what 4 or 5 languages lived in different countries and was a true metropolitan public figure who had interesting things to say.   Then there is also the dark side, what happened in that hotel room so many years ago?  I saw a post by the alleged victims Godfather I think and the only reason he posted was to stick up for her because of the terrible things people were saying in relation to her receiving a settlement to not testify.   The whole situation and how to approach it, just like Kobe, is very complicated.   I know I have heard the stories regarding Ellen Degeneres private life, but I have always admired her public life and think that she has an impeccable skill on approaching subjects with the imo correct perspective.   She has the amazing ability to espouse her opinions which many may not agree with in a respectful way that always seems to come around to we're all in this together.  I really liked her response to Kobe's death.

Kobe is king here in L.A. He meant so much to all of us. And you're right, he should not have been flying that helicopter. He got all his requisite certifications, yada yada, but he was a hobby amateur pilot. Real pilots know about the fog that was there, and the way the machine handles in the extra pressure of fog, and how to handle such low visibility. A man who can afford a pilot, should hire one when he ferries 9 people. I'm all for getting your own maching and flying it maybe with a friend or two. He got his certifications and they wanted to sell him the most expensive machine they could.  There's blood on many hands in this situation, and lessons to be learned. If 9 people need to be transported, you need a near professional, former professional or current professional to fly them, period.

 

No, you're thinking of John Denver.  BTW, I know it is against the rules, but you got anymore of that stuff to send my way?  It must be pretty damn good.
