78. You can't outsmart tragedy every time
Do you honestly believe you're so much smarter, stronger, wiser, than any of these other individuals? Do you honestly think all of those divers DIDN'T think they'd taken every precaution? Do you truly believe the climbers DIDN'T think they'd taken all necessary precaution?

Who the HELL do you think you are to set yourself apart from any other human who uses their best judgment, which may well be WAY beyond yours, and tragedy strikes anyway.

I am not the one who doesn't get it, YOU are. You can learn from every tragedy that there is, and still end up with the unknown striking, just like the Titanic actually. Everything the Captain knew about navigation and sailing and ice actually worked against him.

You just cannot berate and ridicule people with a snort and 'well they should have known better'. It's just plain wrong.
