also, the way I "rationally" explain (excuse?) my fear of flying to well-meaning, statistics-wielding friends and family: I am aware that I have a greater chance of dying in a car crash than in a plane crash (although probably less now that I live in Holland and bike everywhere). But I have a greater chance of surviving any one particular car crash than any one particular plane crash. Or perhaps this is just more of my medieval logic...
