i'm really old and way back in grade school in the late 60s when had "duck in cover" !!!Do the people in this thread realize you’re about equally likely to die to a lightning strike in comparison to a mass shooting?
No? You don’t realize that? Well, lol... it’s pretty close to the truth.
Media can drastically alter people’s perceptions of reality. It’s fascinating.
If the national media covered literally every single time someone got struck by lightning (forgetting about the fatal strikes for now)... a significant portion of you would literally be afraid to go outside with even a single dark cloud in the sky.
we practiced hiding under our little single desks for about 10 minute every day we had a drill, just in case war broke out and bombs would drop. Yes they scared they shit out of me as a child only 8 years old
