Watching all the fracas about airport security has reminded me of some random statistics I heard a couple years ago:
1 out of every 50 people is a sociopath.
1 out of every 100 people is a psychopath.
I'd like to add that your average Boeing 757 holds 201 passengers. And a Boeing 777 holds 440, while the 737 holds anywhere from 126-149.
So let's figure that your random Thanksgiving flight on Wednesday will be 1) crammed full; and, if you are on a 757, home to 2 psychopaths and 4 sociopaths.
Worst case scenerio, flying home on a 777 will net you 4 psychopaths and 8 sociopaths (maybe 9).
Really no way to body scan for Hannibal Lector, is there?
Of course, there's always the possibility that some sociopaths will be psychopaths, sortof a two-for-one deal....
Just thought I'd throw that holiday cheer out there.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
