[SystemSafety] Shark!

Tis the 40th anniversary of the movie Jaws. The script writer is giving interviews. It turns out the movie made many people shark-risk-aware. Some didn't go near a swimming pool for years after. But one comment resonated. Words to the effect of:

"Why did those victims go into the water? Couldn't they hear the music?"

More support for the fundamental axiom of hazard analysis:

"Some things only become clear, later on."

Cheers
