Kill cords and lifejackets. They are big and clever

The amount of folk in at Cowes week not wearing them... or having their kids one leg either side of the bow!

Quite funny bit though... sat waiting to pick up my friend from the red jet terminal in Cowes on the fireworks night. In the space of 20 mins. 3 Women fell in the water trying to board/leave ribs. How many wearing lifejacket? None.

You'll probably find that the reporting of these "hot topics" is becoming more efficient, so you hear about them more easily. Same with natural disasters really, world news is that quick, that you hear about everything these days.

That and there are more risk taking muppets out there. lol.
