    See #2 – Much as w e celebrate illusory notions of individuality, this tendency to try to blend in, mirror behavior, and offload thinking to a group is all but impossible to prevent, once enough people start mingling.

    – got a few extra spaces thrown in there

    Yeah, I see what you’re trying to do in #9: Saying that terrorists aren’t a problem. Yeah, nice liberal response. But your logic is flawed.

    Here, let me help you: Put the layperson in a room with a terrorist and a toaster. Add a bathtub if you feel that will help your case. Guess which one will kill you EVERY time.

    Nice try, but terrorists are MUCH more dangerous than home appliances.

      Sorry, but it is *your* logic that is faulty. More people are killed every day/year/whatever by appliances than terrorists. *By definition* that makes appliances more dangerous. Not to mention the fact that your claim that a terrorist will kill you every time you are in a room with one is ludicrous at best…

      Not at all the point he was making. Fact is, terrorists suck but do not kill average people in day to day life whereas appliances do. Still, I get what your saying, fail4sure. We all would feel safer with a toaster than with an ISIS asshat.

    Wow, a list written by someone literate who actually did some research. I find both to be quite rare (on any list site)…

    Already said, but this list was damn well done. I’ve read it twice and bookmarked it for reference. Great job, Edgar.
