I am flying to San Francisco tomorrow, on a Virgin America A320, seated in row 14. On the right is a nifty graphic with a variety of facts and figures about fatal airplane crashes. The good news for me comes from my choice of carrier, seat location, aircraft type and general odds of dying in a plane crash. The bad news for me is rooted solely in my chosen month of travel. (Click on the image to see it full size. It's fun.)
Overall, I expect to make it to SFO alive. Were there a similar chart, however, on the survivability of getting to, from and through Burning Man, the story might not be so rosy.
