Our world is a dangerous place. We get that confirmation every day, at least several times while reading and watching the news or just in a casual conversation with other people and their experiences. But things are really not that bad. We tend to give our fears much bigger proportions, and the media doesn't really help. Here are statistics and real facts that will maybe make you less afraid and more comfortable being a citizen of the Earth.
Our Planet Is Getting Overcrowded
Seven billion people that live in this moment on Earth could actually all live in Texas and its population density would be same as in New York today.
Acrophobia, or Fear of Heights
In 1972, an airplane crashed and Vesna Vulović, a stewardess on the plane fell from 33,330 ft and survived.
If You Have Fear from Sharks
Have in mind that more people die from vending machines than shark attacks.
Not only vending machines are more dangerous than sharks, but coconuts too, when they fall from trees.
