Like a deranged HAL-9000, the Boeing 737 Max is equipped with a random terror generator that puts the “crash” back in computer crash. The era of human error is over! Flying was getting way too safe; time for the rise of the machines. What’s the world coming to when you can’t board a plane without a 1% chance of helplessly dying in a claustrophobic cabin of roller-coaster nausea? Why should rock stars like Lynyrd Skynyrd have all of the eschatological fun?
Say goodbye to the bombings and highjackings of the early 20th Century. Meet the new terrorist: our own hubris.
