I am not scared of flying even after seeing Red Eye or Final Destination.  Allegiant Air, the cheapest way to fly from Greenville to Clearwater, has open seating now if you don’t pay extra for an assigned seat.  So whenever I board and search for a window seat, I often look at the passengers and think, we could become very close, potentially, not entelechy, in the case of an accident.  You could throw me my life jacket and I could give you CPR on a deserted island to save your life.  So, perhaps in some way, I am a little scared of flying.  I just hope these thoughts never become an entelechy.
