Okay, I'll admit this is really stupid, but it happens to me nearly every day, so I thought I'd share. You know how on newer cars (and by newer, I mean it was made in, like, the past decade) you unlock the car with a button instead of a key? There's that little noise you hear once your car unlocks. Well every single time I hit that unlock, I have this mental image of my car blowing up and my body being blown back. I swear, every time. The problem with this is that while it's a pretty cool death, I realize it's fairly unreasonable. Why would the bomb go off once you hit the unlock button? Chances are, if you're like me, you probably have figured out the exact range of your keyless entry, and you hit it as soon as you enter it's sphere of influence. Surprisingly, mine is only about 17 short footsteps away. Therefore, the chances of the explosion actually killing me are fairly slim, and the Mafia (or whoever actually placed the bomb in my car) will be pretty embarrassed.
