How can people get that careless when life and death matters are involved?
It was the same with the Challenger disaster, was it not?

It's a matter of culture and comfort. If you fly jets everyday, then flying
a jet doesn't seem so life and death. After all how many times have you got
behind the wheel of you car or refueled a hot lawn mower? Life & death
situations for sure, but things you probably don't even think about.

Read Tufte on the Challenger disaster -- it was completely NASA's culture
that caused that disaster. That culture is pretty legendary, too, see
