Disaster

What is the worst way to die? To plumett thousands of feet in a plane, crashing into the sea or worse, the side of a mountain? Or, what about in a ship in a typhoon at night? The fear is incomprehensible. I suppose with a plane it would be over quickly. And what about an earthquake? I suppose an earthquake depends on where you are. If you are in the countryside, in the fields, you should be relatively safe. But if you are in a large built-up city with tall buildings all around, or you could be inside a building being trapped, perhaps minus a leg or arm, does not sound the best way to go. And then the volcano. Being burnt by pyroclastic flow or molten lava is probaly fast but not nice for the loved ones who have to identify the body.

Taking all the above into consideration - plane crashes, boat disasters, typhoons, earthquakes (predicted [!] and actual) and volcanoes, where do you suppose is one of the most dangerous countries to live?

And you thought Filipinos went overseas for the dollar!

as many says, swerte swerte lang yan. wherever you may be, danger is always there. going abroad is already a risk. so i guess the best answer would be prayers.

No country is exempted from any disaster or catastrophe. If it really your time... wherever you are or even if you are sleeping when it's time to go... you got to go. Kahit mag-ingat ka pag talagang mamalasin wala ka ring magagawa diba? let's just pray for a safer place.

Most dangerous? Where your very own country people shoot at each other.

Hey, Soy! I haven't visited for a while, so sorry about that. Hope you are well.

i guess anywhere and everywhere is dangerous if its really your time ;-) here in tokyo we get frequent earthquakes of varying intensity. as in almost everyday. right now we're all waiting for the 'big one' to hit tokyo (it comes every 50 years and is long overdue) kaya all i can do is pray ;-) ingats!

Hi Soy, interesting post. I think every places has their share of threat, what is more important probably is living in a place where your heart is.
