Shark Repellent Airline Seats

Seems Like a No-Brainer

According to (at least one) government, 95.7 percent of passengers involved in aviation accidents survive. Since water covers about three quarters of the Earth’s surface, it is reasonable to assume that a fair number of air crashes are into the water. Airlines will remind you every time you take off that your seats may be used as a flotation device. So, they can avoid adding insult to injury by manufacturing airline seat cushions with built in shark repellent.

       Of the remaining 4.3%, how many are eaten by sharks?

       "We're gonna need a bigger float."   

       I wondered about that statistic myself, [mouse]. I think the 95.7 percent figure is probably total baloney cooked up by the government for reasons of their own.

       The question is, how do they define "aviation accidents?" Clogged toilet? Undersupply of lemon soaked paper napkins?

       HA! Well, [mouse], I haven't heard harrowing accounts of surviving the nightmare of the overhead reading light burning out in mid flight, but that would make quite the movie, eh? [link] for the sorts of accidents they are tracking. And (big surprise) their numbers seem a bit less rosy than 95.7 percent.
