but don't worry, fly is still the safest traveling method.. and faster too... they are

always improving the safety of the planes... not like road traveling.. even they are

improving the safety feature of the car, still we an see a lot of car crash or accident...

human factor maybe the major one.... so, the moral is...... drive safely and

think of others
... it is 'quite OK' if you are the only one that died...but, don't be a killer.. you might kill someone child or mother or father or even pet.... :)
