I'm going to introduce you to a revolutionary thought - you can go slower and get there quicker. And that's to do with flow.

But those standards aren't good enough. He's in a position either to kill or not to kill, and he's made the decision to kill.
The stunning thing about the world as it is, is that we have a tremendously large problem in it: namely, one-third of all human deaths, 80-million every year from poverty-related causes, trivial diseases and so on, and stunningly, nobody is really paying attention to it.
Air travel survived decades of terrorism, including attacks which resulted in the deaths of everyone on the plane. It survived 9/11. It'll survive the next successful attack. The only real worry is that we'll scare ourselves into making air travel so onerous that we won't fly anymore.
Middle age snuffs out more talent than ever wars or sudden deaths do.
