As a few large drops of rain start to fall, the man next to you finally notices the weather. "Drat," he says, "it's starting to rain." Relieved that someone besides you is focused on the coming storm, you reply, "Yes, and it's thundering a bit." When the man doesn't say anything, you continue, "I think maybe we should go, don't you?" The man looks at you in surprise. "What? Don't tell me you're afraid of getting wet!" You reply, "No, no. It's just this lightning...and all the people here..." The man snorts and turns his attention back to the game. Not wanting to look like a chicken, you stay put. After all, you think, with all these people here, what are the odds it will be you who gets struck by lightning...right?
