In a graphically amusing, but poignant post on Gizmodo, author Jesus Diaz demonstrates the small odds of being on a flight when a terrorist attack might occur. Using a calculation composed of the number of folks that travel annually, the total airline miles traveled, plus the time spent traveling, Diaz then divides by the number of terrorist attacks in the past ten years and the number of people that died on those flights. What he concludes is that the odds of an average Customer being on a plane when a terrorist attack occurs is about one in 10.4 million. “As slim,” Diaz remarks, “as the chances of the new security rules having any real effect in preventing any new attacks, sadly.”
