Helicopters are not the safest way to fly.

Well that's far worse than just him. 

My avatar is a pic of a dude who died in a helicopter crash.

Daughter and another teammate and parent.

Tragic, especially for the two teens who never had a chance to fully embrace life.

Helicopters are not the safest way to fly.

Probably depends on how you measure it. Helicopters are more often doing dangerous things near the ground, like fighting fires, evacuating people, or zigzagging through terrain for tourists. I don't think there's much difference in safety when flying straight-line from helipad to helipad with a trained pilot. A lot safer than driving, I'm sure.

I can't think of too many celebrities who have died in chopper crashes, which is surprising since they are in them quite often. Stevie Ray Vaughan, Colin McRae (who was piloting), Gary Powers (who was piloting), who else?

am i a bad person if i dont feel anything about this? i mean its a tragedy all these people died, specifically the kids. but like kobe dying and the baseball coach dying and some dude in north philly dying are all the same to me.

maybe the constant violence of the world and non stop mass shootings has sanitized me

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.
