21. People get complacent. They believe they are immortal

Or so good it won't happen to them. They take more chances.

In the Alaska Bush they have a saying.

"There are old Bush pilots, and there are old bush pilots. There are NO old and bold bush pilots."

It happens on farms, with livestock, firearms, electricity, etc. It's human nature I suspect.

In fact, I see it every morning driving to work on the freeway. Women putting on makeup, people texting, eating, lighting cigarettes, blasting the radio and singing along.

I work in health and safety to an extent, so I am reminded daily.
